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!

Great food, a little awkward with the entry and getting checked in for a table. Once seated a great experience, the waiter was knowledgeable and spent extra time going over the menu. The food definitely didn’t disappoint, great flavor and spice. Overall a great experience.

Chef Pom and Dana create a fantastic environment to enjoy some of the finest Thai dishes you can find in the U.S. .... Seriously, very very creative, tasty selections, that change seasonally. My family has fallen in love with the staff, the location, the food, and the way we feel like family. Will we be going back? YEA!

My birthday. Food was great. Server got confused and brought the wrong wine. My friend said she would drink the wine he brought. She should not have been charged for that wine. Food was very good. Pad Thai and dancing shrimp app were the best!

Terrible service.
Had booked it for a Prom night dinner for 10 well in advance. Reconfirmed on phone a day ahead. After waiting for 30 minuets and still not being seated had to leave to find another place for this special occasion. Very disappointed.
NOT A PLACE TO TRUST IF ITS AN IMPORTANT EVENING FOR YOU.

I had Barramundi Sea Bass and my wife had Coconut Curry which actually came in a coconut. Both were excellent. The Leaf is located in an old house so we were in a room with one other couple. This didn't bother us but may be off-putting for others as we could hear their convo. Excellent food with intimate atmosphere.

I love this restaurant, so not a whole lot will keep me from returning... HOWEVER, they have one waitress who is just awkward.

She waits on my friend and I every time we come in, yet she acts as though she has never seen us before. She always questions me at least once when I tell her my spice level, even though I am very clear what I am asking for.

Yesterday, my check was $13 and change, and I gave her a $20 and she asked if I needed change. One of my biggest pet peeves because I used to wait tables and always assumed the person would want change unless they said not to. So she came back with a $5 bill and a $1 bill and two dimes. Luckily I had some more singles in my wallet - but our service didn't warrant a $5 tip on a $13 bill.

We didn't get offered refills on our drinks. And she completely forgot to bring back my friend's check with the credit card.

I wish we could get a different waitress when we go there for lunch because the food is incredible but the waitress makes it just an awkward experience.

We have dined at Banana Leaf for nearly 10 years. The food and service is always second to none. The entrees are create and the food always has extremely fresh ingredients.

Secondarily, it is one of the very few places that my children eat at and complete their meals. :)

The restaurant was not ready when we got there but they totally made up for it. The tropical tea is amazing, the edamame was incredible and the red curry was delicious. They even customized my red curry (no bamboo, extra peppers). This place is totally worth it!

My boss & I went for business & although it’s small there was just enough noise we felt we could talk openly without people listening to our conversation. It was my first time trying Red Curry & so glad I did-it was great! I always get Chicken pad Thai so it was nice to try something different-I can’t wait to go back!

My husband and I decided to go to Banana Leaf restaurant for our Anniversary dinner, we have eaten at Banana Leaf previously and we have enjoyed our dinners. We both did enjoyed our dinners until it was time for deserts. I had been e mailed an offer to receive a free desert for our anniversary, and that helped me make the decision on where we would celebrate our anniversary. When it came time to order our desert, I told the waitress that I had the offer, and she told me to pull up on my phone and she said she would come back and push a button. I had starred the offer so I could find it easy, which I did. So I pulled up the offer and when I pulled it up it disappeared, and at the time I didn't know what happen and I started looking thru my email I it was gone, it disappeared, Gone! It was so upsetting because I didn't know where it went to. After we retuned home I could not stop thinking about it and I think I finally know what happen to the offer. The waitress said she needed to push a button. When I pulled the offer up I was trying to make it a little larger and I think I touch the promo code and it sent it to our check for the free desert, but because I couldn't show it to the waitress we didn't get our free desert, which was a bad ending to our anniversary dinner. Very disappointing!

I had never heard of Banana Leaf. Found it on Google and made reservations for a business lunch. I am guessing that they are still working on interior design, as there is some sign of disorder, but still with plenty to attract your attention. Fortunately, I gauge restaurants less by the window treatments, more by everything else. Everything else was OVER-THE-TOP fantastic! The two servers very VERY personable and eager to answer questions, make suggestions, anything to please our small party. The Tropical Iced Tea was arguably the best iced tea that I have ever had! This review is getting too long...the food was AMAZING! All three of us are looking for a reason to go back.

We chose this as a friends’ date night. Our group of 6 had mixed reviews. The service was the worst part. There seemed to be only one waitress and she tried her best but everything was delayed. We had to wait excessively long for drinks and she forgot the extra plate so people were sharing one plate. Also the scallop dish was only 3 small scallops with 3 teaspoons of rice for $30. Not a great value.

Food was delicious, and our "waiter" Max, gave perfect service! He knew each dish in detail that I asked about and was very good about knowing when to check in. The cost is a little more than we intended for a casual evening, but it was delicious!

Many visits to Banana Leaf and this time showed that over several years the quality of my favorite dish Panang Curry was as excellent as it was the first time I had it. The other dish we ordered was a chef's special (Scallops on Forbidden Rise) was equally excellent. Wonderful place for dinner or lunch.

There was no point to make reservation since we had to wait about ten minutes to be seated when the restaurant was almost empty. We had a service dog, and an employee wad trying to contact their owner to ask either to let our group dine in or not. The owner couldn't be reached. The customer with a service dog may want to reconsider selecting the restaurant.
It was a surprise to see tip already included in the bill for a group of five.

Great meal, service and overall date night. Was disappointed that my wife and I were sat in a room with another couple side by side. Our date night overlapped into their conversation and vise versa. Yes they were both 2 tops but in the 90 minutes we were there the remaining empty 4 tops were never seated. Could have been more intimate with space between couples. We will return regardless! EAT THE CURRY!
