I found this place by accident. I went in and tried some cuisines i've never heard of and was IMPRESSED. In fact, i was in Phila for 4 days and ate there 5 times (i had lunch and dinner there one day). I can't wait to go back. This is a good place to try something new!

This is a great place for Malaysian food--maybe you've had your fill of Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, this is a great alternative. Terrific menu, great food and service. Save room for the banana pancakes for dessert.

I have been here several times and have yet to be disappointed! I had the captians noodles and my date had the chicken curry, we both loved it. My dish displayed perfectly fried noodles and a combination of perfectly cooked and seasoned chicken, pork, and shrimp. Try it!

I rarely spend money on Asian food except for cheap take out, Banana Leaf is great! It concerns me that so many people have such a limited idea of asain cuisine, be sure to opt for the Malaysion dishes, though the sushi is great and a good value! Actually, get both!

I've been going to Banana Leaf since it opened and have enjoyed every meal. I previously went to Penang, which I still enjoy, but I like the atmosphere more at Banana. The roti is delicious and I make sure to order it every time along with the coconut rice.

Went for lunch with a friend. We weren't hugely hungry so we ordered two appetizers and a tofu (tempeh) curry soup. Service was nice, low key. Food came out fast. Too fast. You are basically getting buffet food when they can put it up that fast. The achat is supposed to be cold, which it was, and not bad, but nothing great. The fried tiny squid is candied. There were slices of dried hot chilis that I had to avoid to make the dish edible, and I don't mind hot food. No squid taste penetrated the sweet sauce, the chilis, and the generally way overcooked nature of the dish. The curry soup was the best dish we had, came with too little broth (which was quite good) and lots of tempeh. This place gives plenty of food. White rice was so so. I can make better rice and I'm not that into cooking. Bill with tip for two people was $28. Not sure I'll be back soon, or maybe we missed the right dishes to order.
