Banana Leaf Restaurant
Ranked #92 of 524 Restaurants in Cary
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 June 2016

We ordered crab rangoons, oolong tea, egg rolls, a chicken/vegetable dish of some sort from the lunch menu, and Singapore mei fun from the dinner menu. It was a huge amount of food and it wasn't very expensive. We had to wait a bit too long for someone to seat us, but everything else was good, and they didn't seem to have a lot of employees. We will definitely be back.

Visited on a whim, looking for something/where we hadn't been.
Viola ! Tucked away in an old strip mall location in Cary, fairly nondescript outside, but dont let that fool you, its bright, cheery, and comfortable inside.
The service was attentive and efficient, the "Asian-fusion" menu selections were extensive without being too much over the top and the dishes while mixed in style were the best of traditional fares. The food was excellent and I mean excellent, The meal was preceded by complimentary bowl of (house specialty) duck (broth) soup, which was light but rich, in need of a touch of salt/pepper but excellent. I had Short Ribs with black pepper served over daily-fresh green vegetables in a slightly sweet black pepper dark sauce and steamed rice. Delicious; flavorful and tender for short ribs (of course a little al dente as short ribs will always be" ! My wife had Spicy Beef in a cumin based dark sauce with fresh coriander leaves, over fresh green vegetables. It was tender and delicious with a good spicy zing and warm well rounded cumin/coriander flavor.
On the whole an excellent experience and one we intend fully to re-visit !!!!!!!!

The chicken dish we ordered had many jalapenos - it was too hot for us to eat all the peppers. Service was so-so, but they were very busy for a Sunday evening. They were known for their Peking Duck, which we should've ordered instead. We saw many passing by.

I came here based on all the good reviews. Was not disappointed at all. Very spacious inside with lots of seating. Lunch specials are a great deal... $6.95 for salad, spring roll and entree. Very clean. Waits dart was friendly and attentive.
