It's My first time to tried this place when i went to Power Plant Mall,

So it's Asian Cuisines Restaurant, mixed from Thailand, Indonesia, India, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.

Interesting place... I never went to a restaurant with all 6 countries food in one place,

Oh the serving plate, no plate yeah.. It's only Banana Leaf!

So, i ordered,
1) Prata Bread with Currry Sauce (India)
2) Stur fry Vegetables (DouMiao) (Singapore)
3) Samosa (India)
4) Chicken Rendang (Malaysia)
5) Lemongrass Tea ( Thailand )
6) Vietnamesse Coffee (Vietnam)

I know kinda alot for two pax haha but we finished everything because all the food just sooo GOOD!

The curry with prata bread it's really AUTHENTIC Indian food, no changes at all

The stir fry really good, not over cook, still fresh (thats the important in chinese cuisines when u stir fry vege)

The samosa, the fillings are blend perfectly,

The chicken rendang, oh my so soft till i could like the bowl,

For drinks, it's simple but the authentic taste is really good.

So the word is AUTHENTIC TASTE

Thats really really important for me in Asian Food.. And I really like this place.

Go try folks!

The thai pad thai was a let down. The beef rendang's meat was okay but the taste of the sauce is weird... and the green pork curry with pineapple was just so.so.. thanks for the Roti with yellow curry who's the only saving grace.

A little slow on service, everyone seems dragging. Couldn't count the exact number of flatware needed for the customers. Took some time after asking for additional spoon and fork. Not as much thrilled and head-over-heels in love with their food. It was ok. A little saving grace for this restaurant perhaps? Something great to redeem themselves from a little disappointment? Perhaps a bestseller dish that I may not have tried that could completely change my mind? LoL! The banana leaf plate? 128514

It's the weekend before Christmas, of course you should expect that the mall traffic will be heavy; likewise during lunch hour, the restaurant you choose to be adequately manned. But not Banana leaf. Only one server was in sight for practically the whole time we were there. It took ages for the lime slices to come out. Thai spring rolls was too salty and had just glass noodles. Only the fried king fish with mango salsa was good enough. Thank goodness the movie we watched after made up for this bad lunch.

I don't know why everyone on looloo hates banana leaf. There's something very comforting about the food in this restaurant. I liked their curry, beef rendang, chicken pandan. Actually, I've yet to try something bad at Banana Leaf.

Yeah their service could be better but whatever.

Always go for the iced Vietnamese coffee, trust me

They should clean up the place. Flies continue to land on the table. Wifey got so disgusted that she decided to cross towards Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen. Which is a bit sad because our dining experience here in the past has been pleasant. And their prices are reasonable.

After reading the bad reviews, still decided to give it a try. The food is okey and prices are very reasonable. Full capacity but we did not wait to long for the food to be served. I just don't like the glass (plastic) they use to serve water. Guess they should change it soon definitely a turn down. Serving portion is okey. Servers not to attentive.

Napakalungkot na dinner! Yung tipong sobrang gutom ka na tapos ang tagal ng service plus hindi pa worth it yung bayad sa lasa ng food mo.

I have tried their Malayan Curry before but it didn't taste this bad. 128531

Food taste above average. They charge mandatory 10% Service Charge but the service is average. We were serve with our Laksa Soup but the soup cup came in almost 10 minutes so the soup no longer hot. I think all resto here in Power Plant Rockwell has Service Charge because it Makati area. Im not against Service Charge as long as you see the service.

This branch has the WORST service and food quality ever!

*the gir manager was cutting her toe nails beside our table
*everyone was not smiling, was never anticipating, had no heart with that they're doing!
*manager was rude and you can see with her gestures and facial expressions that she is annoyed
*there was a black thing on the rim of the glass of my friend
*the rice of my chicken was cold
*orders took so long and the runner told me that their machine is broken
*the only thing that was fast was our bill!

This is disappointing because I was excited to bring my friends there because I told them they have good food. Unfortunately, they became such a failure!

NEVER GONNA RECOMMEND OR GO BACK HERE!

Banana Leaf is one of those no-frills restaurants that offer good food at reasonable prices. I love their laksa! Sadly, I didn't to try the real thing in Singapore but a friend said BL's is pretty close. Get the one with wanton dumplings for an extra munch 128521 their roti canai is one of my favorite dishes and their chicken satay really satays-fies *jab jab-* 128517ahem.

When I'm on a budget, BL is defintely one of my choices.128184

I love what we ordered!!! Yum yum yum never thought this place could offer good food. Hehe sorry i thought this place is you know.. Anway, My friend and I ordered Fried Spring Rolls, Mixed Vegies with Fish Sauce, and Pad Thai! 128513 Not giving 5 stars because their mixed veggies is not worth it! Lol but I love what we ate!! Yum craving for it right now! Our orders were good for sharing so the price is just right! Tbh, today's not my first time to dine. I dined here 3 months ago and I just ordered their beef rice bowl, which is tama lang, so I didn't bother to have it posted here.

Hihi

Because we were so hungry 128513 I didn't have the chance to take pictures hehe. Nevertheless, the dishes are really great! Clam curry, spareribs, thai fried rice and kangkong with sambal sauce; and of course- Thai iced tea! 128516

Just the right level of spiciness across dishes. My recommendation though is to order plain rice; instead of fried rice, given that the sauces are tasty enough.

We thought this was just another Pinoy resto where you eat Pinoy specialties such as sinigang and adobo, but we're surprised on the type of food they cook here. Asian food such as Thai and Singaporean. They have Roti with curry sauce which was better tasting than what we ate when we were at Singapore. I ordered black pepper beef which was sort of sweet spicy and creamy. Their Thai Tea was fab too! I'd like to come back to taste the rest of what they offer.
