Bit oily for us but fantastic flavour. There was a lot of Malaysian folk which is good, they were busy. The staff were very alert and attentive to guests. We over eat :-)

We went here on the recommendation from review on Trip Advisor. We loved it so much for lunch, we arranged my husband's birthday dinner here. The food was AMAZINGLY delicious and it suited our vegetarian son very well as much as the meat eaters.

Had a nice lunch here today. Good service and atmosphere. Busy place. Don't miss the Roti and Nasi Goreng. Great beers on tap and so many options on the menus.

Yes, I agree. The Banana Leaf on Denman Street does not have any stairs. It is also quite close to English Bay which is quite beautiful. Parking can be a challenge in that neighbourhood though.
