Thai
Banana Leaf Modern Thai provides a treat for all the senses! Each dish is homemade and presented as a work of art. Menu favorites include Curry dishes, Spring Rolls, and of course the wildly popular Pad Thai. For those wanting to try new things, our Chef creations include Filet Mignon Panang and Crispy Diva Sea Bass. We also offer brown rice and vegetarian inspired dishes. Much of the produce is organic and we support locally grown. Don"t be surprised to see the Chef open the kitchen door to snip herbs from the outdoor patio! The decor completes the dining experience with each room on both floors uniquely decorated and upbeat global music plays in the background. Enjoy tapas and wine in the lounge or dine outdoors in nice weather on our two outdoors patios. Both are beautifully landscaped and include waterfalls. Open 7 days for lunch and dinner. Large parties are welcome and reservations are recommended. We look forward to serving you!

We love going to the Banana Leaf restaurant in the summer when it’s possible to sit outside in their beautiful garden. Their meals are well prepared and fresh, attractively presented and delicious.
The garden is unique in that it is a kitchen garden with herbs and fruits intermingled with beautiful flowers. It is very creatively designed and a joy to see.

We moved to Dayton from the east coast. Many good restaurants in Washington DC and Annapolis, MD so I know a good one when I see it. This is one of those "out of the way" jewels that I am always searching for. The food was wonderful, as was the service. My wife and I are planning our next trip back to Banana Leaf soon. I didn't expect to find this quality in the mid west. I am so happy they are in Mason.

We went to Banana Leaf at 7pm on a Saturday. We were able to get a reservation with short notice so that helped up decide. We were really glad we went. It was our first time at Banana Leaf and Max our server was great. We loved the food and had great service. We can't wait to go back.

Chicken dishes were dry and rubbery. Shrimp dishes were great. Spice level 5 is just mild! Overall..disappointing food service was great. Too loud as it’s small rooms and too many patrons stuffed in them!

Great locally owned Thai restaurant. Food is simply outstanding, and the service was super. Relaxed, quite atmosphere makes it great for dates or quite family dinners. Really nice neighborhood find worth driving a bit for!

The price of the food doesn’t justify the taste and quality. The service was just okay and slow. Not very happy.

It was a super hot day, and the retrofitted AC system in what was otherwise a charming, remodeled old house couldn't keep up, but otherwise everything about the meal was wonderful.

Pretty disappointed with our first experience. Food was pretty tasty and you can tell it was very fresh. We were incredibly disappointed by poor customer service from the moment we stepped inside. The hostess was quite rude, and ended up seating several other couples who arrived after us even though we had a reservation (only two of us). We were the only people to be seated upstairs for our entire meal, and seemed to be forgotten by the wait staff. It was almost 15 minutes before we saw our waitress (even for water) and then we had to go downstairs to ask the hostess for water refills because our waitress never came back. If the customer service was actually attentive, I may have been ok with the high prices, but for what we got food wise coupled with terrible service, it was definitely overpriced.

We were sat at a table in the sun upstairs without much AC and no blinds. The food was exceptional, but the service was incredibly lack-luster. The prices were definitely elevated particularly considering the staff were basically not attentive or particularly inclined to check up on us. I won't be going back.

Everytime we go here, we always wonder why we don't go more often. Sat on the back patio, and with the garden like atmosphere and running water,, although a bit of traffic noise, set the atmosphere for an excellent meal. Service excellent and friendly, and we ordered the steak and eggs (eggplant) and it was delicious. Already ordered the appetizer sampler and everything tasted so fresh.
We'll be back sooner

This place was a very pleasant surprise. Gorgeous grounds with fountains and dining outside. Inside, dining tables are set up in individual rooms of what was once a historic residence on the corner of Main St. in Mason's lovely downtown area. The food was tremendous, but we were most impressed by the presentation: each dish was like a piece of art! So unexpected, and very reasonably priced, considering the quality. We will be back!

It was my bday meal. It was really good but i still struggle with a shrimp pad thai being $27 it seems pricey! Also they now include a gratuity automatically but dont tell you its added l feel like thats sneaky esp when its for only two people! Also let me sit down at the table no matter if its just me or not!! Thanks

There is something off with the overall feel of this place. The food is good enough, and the presentation was great - but the price doesn’t match the value. The layout is so tight, that when leaving, we had to ask two separate groups to let us by just to get out
I was hoping for better
