THE best place to go to for steamed buns in the GVRD. Sponge cake is not so great (go to T&T instead). Palitow is good. Pancit is not so great.
The lady owner of the Richmond location is not person-friendly at all, but don't let it scare you off (i.e. no smile, no hello, and she might not even serve you till she's done eating her own lunch first--she'll make you stand there and wait). I've been going there for years now, that's just the way she is.

The time we went, there were a dozen flies near the front entrance/patio area. Service ok. Ordered jerk chicken and roti. Would not go back, especially at what they charge for it. Riddim & Spice on Commerical Drive has better jerk (not the best, but way better) and go to Rehanah's Roti on St. John's St. in Port Moody for that specialty.

Let me tell you something about Banana Leaf Restuarant. My family is from Malaysia and this is not real Malaysian food. It is just ok-above average. Have you ever noticed that most of the patrons are Caucasian? If it was so good and real, where are all the Malays?
Second of all, the waitress we had was by far the rudest server we've EVER encountered. She gave us nothing but attitude and complained about her tip. I won't even go into details because the thought of it is just sickening. Anyway, their cendol is far from real and is way to sweet. Pineapple rice boat is good and the chi-chi's. Roti is excellent. Other than that, it's ok.
