Banana Leaf has been on my list for a long time now, and for some reason I haven’t visited it till now….not sure why maybe just depending on what I felt like to eat on the day.

On entering the decor and atmosphere is very nice, and a little fancy.

We were taken to our table and sat down, while I was getting comfy I had a look about. This was VERY nice inside, and everything felt like had to be perfect.


While we were waiting for our food to arrive, I noticed the manager? was teaching a girl how the tables should be set and everything had to be in a specific area and perfect. I really like this touch, as it shows that the restaurant cares even about the little things.

The Food…

I don’t know what this was called, but this was given to us while waiting and told it was to help refresh out palates.


This was nice.

We just asked for when the items were ready to just bring them out, so it was a mix of starters and mains.


Roasted Duck Slices stuffed with Prawn and Chicken Meat £13.90
served in a plum sauce


This looked very nice, though a little more salad than I would like (but you know am not a salad guy).

I tried a little first and BANG WOW!!!! this was soooo tasty I LOVED it!!! So it was time to dig in and enjoy my meal.

This was a very very good option for me, normally I would have avoided it as duck is hit and miss for me….but tonight this was really good and I would order this again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Value for Money : 4

Roti Canai (Indian Influenced Crispy Flatbread) £4.80
served with curry sauce


I have had Roti before, so I thought lets try it here and this was originally my starter but as I said I asked them to bring it all at once.

Again this was very nice, very light and the curry sauce was REALLY good.

My first visit to Banana Leaf was very good, I could tell they took a lot of care and attention to everything from the restaurant to the food.

I cant fault anything tonight, the service and food was very good. The atmosphere was very relaxing.

For me and this is a personal thing, maybe the cost of the dishes are just a little much for the portion size but apart from that its a great place to try.
