We were excited to go here but our very first dish was fried calamari. Mixed in was a metal and plastic bottle cap that had accidentally been fried with the food. We complained and they immediately replaced the dish of calamari with another one fried...More

We had an excellent Singapore Laksa with shrimp, egg noodles, tofu, chicken and fish in a curry coconut broth and a Kung pow chicken with calamari. Both very tasty. The Panang dessert with frozen coconut milk and green parang layer was special. Service was friendly,...More

We live in the area and have been going to Banana Leaf on Davie Street for years. Probably popping in 3 to 4 times a year. The food is always good and a great value, especially if you grab a few things during Happy Hour...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
