The last time I was here was probably over 6 years ago, but I remember it having good food and the best coffee I have ever had!!!

Today I decided to take a visit to see if its how I remembered, plus to have that amazing coffee again.

Before you continue please note that I forgot to take a photo of the coffee, it was the Malaysian Style Coffee (Hot) but OMG you HAVE!!!! to try this its a 10/10.

The Food…

Roti Canai £2.50

On arrival I thought hmm 2 would have been good, but this was just for lunch and I had another course coming.

To be honest one was perfect, and it was packed with flavour with and without the curry sauce.

Main Course

Deep Fried Chicken Wings £4.90
with a spicy coating

So I am not great with anything spicy, but I thought ok lets try it.

This was not spicy one bit, the sauce had more kick than the chicken. It was just ok, yeah it was nice but just OK

Not sure if I would order this again.

Overall

A mixed visit today, starter and coffee mmmmm very good but a little dissapointed with the chicken wings.

I will definitely be going back to try more of the dishes, and to have more coffee.

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.

IMG_7970.jpg

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.

Mains

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

IMG_7975.jpg

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.

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.

Overall

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.

Nam Tuk’s New Menu (West End, Glasgow) : Review

I had heard a few weeks back that a change was coming to Nam Tuk, and it was with regards to the menu. Some dishes added and some dropped, but I didn’t know what ones…

I know I have been here loads recently but the food is very good, so when I heard this I was like ohhh noooo so I had to take a visit and sample some dishes…plus this is where I will be filming my next Blogger Meets Blogger YouTube Episode….so time to do some research.

The Food…

Starter

Mixed Seafood and Chive Dumplings £6.95

IMG_7536

This is a new dish on the menu, and I have had dumplings from a few places near Nam Tuk and thought just meh….so I had to try these to compare.

Instantly after the first bite, it was an explosion of flavour and even with the sauce still amazing.

For me this is the place to go for Dumplings if you are in the West End of Glasgow.

Salt & Chilli Chips £2.95

IMG_7538

I love Salt and Chilli Chips and have only found one Chinese that does them really good, so I thought lets see what here is like.

These are just as good as that Chinese, and EXTREMELY moreish!!!!

I know it says chilli but its not got a massive kick which is perfect for me, so please dont be put off by the name if you dont tend to go for anything chilli.

These are now as MUST order for me along with the Yam Yam Wings.

Traditional Chicken Curry £9.50

IMG_7539.jpg

I had not had a chicken curry for a long long time, normally its a Korma or a special curry so a traditional one sounded good.

This hit the spot! YUM sums it right up!!

Overall

Overall I was a little nervous when I heard here was changing the menu, but tonight put my mind at ease!.

I will be back as I visit the West End a lot these days, so I will keep trying different dishes and let you know what I think.

See you soon.
