Banana Leaf is used to being in the spotlight. After all, the Malaysian restaurant has earned several Best Asian titles at local restaurant award ceremonies since its 1995 establishment. Delicious mainstay menu items like the spicy rending beef and fluffy roti canai emphasize their Malaysian roots, however Banana Leaf also incorporates Indonesian, Thai, Indian, and Chinese inspiration and the occasional Portuguese touch. The results are continually evolving food, drink, and dessert menus designed for sharing among friends and family, with several items changing each season to reflect diners’ cravings and available ingredients.
Over the years Banana Leaf has expanded to include five locations in central Vancouver, all of which feature the same warm and cheerful atmosphere, friendly service, and flavourful food. Whether you’re a food critic or a first-timer, Banana Leaf is your best bet for a taste of Malaysia in the city.
Banana Leaf serves up Malaysian cuisine from five convenient locations in Vancouver. All three Banana Leaf restaurants are open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
