Living in Vancouver you hear such wonderful reviews about certain restaurants and the name kind of sticks. And for that reason alone i think the banana leaf was stuck in my head as a good restaurant. So i decided to check it out, isn't it funny how when the place is a disappointment you can never remember who exactly told you the place was good. Well i can honestly say it isn't very good or even worth mentioning to a friend. The food isn't horrible it is just ok and maybe if it was really cheap then ok would be fine enough. but it isn't all that cheap and it seems like they have made cuts to their budget in all the wrong places. Basic things like the pineapple fried rice tasted really oily and the chicken was tough. The service was alright but i think most places in Vancouver have decent service, it is the food that makes most places stand out. So my review: the food isn't very good and for all the folks that think big portions are a sign of good food - well this might be your kind of place

Ahhh censorship is alive and well, alright cause Anducci's was that bad i am going to rewrite my review minus the slander against the General Manager but you can imagine how bad the service on his end was. My wonderful "italian experience" started soon after ordering my meal, and honestly I think the mircowaves broke down that night cause it took forever to deliever the blant everything tastes like olive oil and pepper pasta. If you are looking for a restuarant that prides itself on little to no customer service then the look is over. After the 2 hours it took for the birthday girl and a few others to get their meals (after we had already finnished our dinner) the manager was full of excuses but no action.After complaining it still took 15mins more to get their dinner. bad food bad serive bad time
