We ordered the typical Malaysian dishes. The satay was good. The mango salad was ok. The char kwei teow failed miserably. The Hainan chicken was ok although the chicken was tasteless. Roti Chanai was ok. The beef rendang was very good. I would rate the...More

Our party of 4 (which included a six year-old) arrived on a Saturday at around 6PM, at which time the spacious, multi-table Banana Island was already completely filled and six people were waiting in the narrow waiting space. Almost all of the diners were Asian,...More

It is a nice restaurant. If you want to try Asian food but not the regular Chinese dishes then this the place. The Malaysian/Singaporean Food awesome. Try some juice drinks like peach or mango drink were good. Nothing negative to report.

Love, Love LOVE the food here. They have EVERYTHING. This is an old standby. Portions are large, food is fresh, and flavors are fabulous. Menu is extensive, with selections not just from Malay/Indonesia but pretty pan asian. I'm veggie, but friends and family say the...More

I setup a dinner for 25 friends and had a great experience from start to finish. I was kinda of worried that they would only give me a start time of 5:00pm or 5:30pm with a length of two hours, but it was just right....More
