About Banana Leaf (Cambridge Street)
Malaysian Chinese restaurant in city centre
Banana Leaf is an award-winning, Malaysian Chinese restaurant on Cambridge Street in Glasgow city centre. There is another branch on Byres Road. A family-run business, the restaurant has dark, handsome looks. There is a feature wall decorated with wallpaper displaying, intricate yet outsized leaves and black rattan pendants provide flatteringly subdued lighting. It is smart and intimate but offers a relaxed atmosphere and friendly welcome whether you are visiting for a date or a family dinner.
Hybrid of Malaysian and Chinese cooking
An exciting and ever evolving hybrid of Malaysian and Chinese culinary traditions, the menus at the Banana Leaf have much to offer both novices and old hands. Well-known dishes such as chicken satay skewers, roti, nasi goreng and rendang beef curries sit beside more exotic options such as the deep-fried fish head soup and the sizzling venison hot plate.
A lunch offer, early evening menu, group menus and a separate rice and noodle menu all operate along with the a la carte. The staff are always happy to help with navigation.
