Taking time-honoured recipes and serving them up in a fresh and funky setting, Banana Leaf is raising the bar for Thai cuisine in East Brisbane. With walls covered in kitschy Thai film posters, Banana Leaf’s casual and stylish vibe makes it the perfect place for dinner and drinks with friends. Begin your meal with one of Banana Leaf’s own inventions like the soft lava (soft tofu, chilli paste sour sauce, coriander and fried shallots) or an old favourite like the satay chicken or money bags. Then, tuck into some pigsy brisy (roasted pork belly with sour chilli sauce, eggplants, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, corn, mozzarella, rice, pickled cucumber and spiced mayo), a traditional curry or some seafood like the yellow shirt prawns (tiger prawns in a hot and sour sauce with zucchini, capsicum and carrot). With its exciting takes on Thai classics and cool decor, Banana Leaf on Wellington Road is a favourite among the foodies of East Brisbane. Snag a table by making a reservation in advance!
Really lovely stylish local restaurant with fabulous food and friendly efficient service. So good to have thoughtful and delicious vegetarian options as well instead of it being an afterthought as it is in so many places. Only tiny downside was that it is quite noisy which makes it hard to chat.
Such a great little spot. Great mix of authentic and modern Thai and an enormous menu. Service was good and our meals were really tasty. Overall really decent Thai and well priced.
Great food and service, will be returning to this lovely restaurant.Unusual dishes as well as authentic, reasonable prices. Meals came out quickly, or can choose time.
