The second time we have been here, beautiful Indian food served very quickly. This is not fine dining but the food is delicious. One of our favourites in Singapore.

We walked into this place on spec and were not disapointed. The menu and range of food on offer was extensive and I'm sure you will be able to find something you like. All the food is services on a banana leaf, hence the name...More

The never ending crowds in the place is simple proof about the place! Had a sumptuous banana leaf dinner with the family complete with a few additional chicken and mutton dishes. Curries were fresh and really tasty, the meats were well cooked, and we left...More

I visit Banana Leaf every time I come to Singapore. It is a little more expensive now and the menu has changed but the food is still great. Mutton masala, spinach paneer and tandoori chicken are my favourites. I will return!

It's a great place if you miss or want to experience authentic southern Indian cuisine when in Singapore. Great variety of dishes, served on banana leaf. And it always tastes better with Kingfisher beer!

We loved this place! We found the place by accident, loved the food, and came back a few days later. Lots of dishes to choose from, all great quality. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, perfect for a family lunch.

Having visited here many times, I don't think this visit was as good as previously experienced. Menu pictures for some dishes are unrealistic which resulted in us over ordering dishes. Not a wholly professional service on this basis but fantastic food as always!

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,

I don't think there is a private dining room but there are different areas which can had been reserved separately the night we went. We went as a couple.
