My best friend Remie and I held a joint birthday celebration with our closest friends at Banana Leaf at The Podium last night. Banana Leaf offers Malaysian and Thai cuisine.

We had two salads for appetizers. I found the Pomelo Salad Thai Style too sour and the Roast Chicken & Mango Salad too sweet.


The group was unanimous in saying that we should have ordered steamed rice instead of the Penang Fried Rice with Salted Fish & Chicken as it did not complement the viands we ordered. It actually overpowered the other dishes.

I liked the Stir-fried Chinese Kangkong with Sambal Sauce and the Squid Garlic.

However, I did not attempt eating the Stir-fried Crab with Spicy Golden Garlic because it’s too messy to eat. My husband said it tasted okay.

There was nothing extraordinary with the rest of what we ordered.

Oat Prawns


Malayan Chicken Curry with Potatoes

I did notice something, though. We weren’t served any sauces, dips or condiments for the the shrimp, squid and crab in our dinner table. That could have made our food more appetizing.

Oh, I loved my Thai iced tea, by the way. It’s definitely worth a try. Too bad, we weren’t able to take a picture of it.

Banana Leaf did well with their food presentation. Overall, though, I’d give them only a 2.5 rating out of 5. I was full but not completely satisfied.
