Foursquare Tips

  • The roti canai and chicken satay for appetizers never fail. Among the main course try the singapore noodle or thai basil, they are my regulars. Donot forget to taste the lychee juice.
  • This is one of my go-tos in Chinatown. My Malaysian friends say this is closest thing to home. Love their mango dishes and Mee Siam. Definitely give the Pad Thai a try, it's a different take.
  • Go for a variety of dishes so you can have a taste of this cuisine...
  • Spicy crispy squids. They will warn you they have tentacles, you will reassure them that it's fine, and they will be crunchy, sweet and delicious.
  • Banana Leaf is one of our favorite restaurants in Philly! Not only is the atmosphere great, their Roti Canai is to die for! Lastly, its BYOB - so bring your own bottle of wine or beer and enjoy!
  • The beef green curry in a clay pot is amazing. Also the Roti Canai and the Satay chicken.
  • trying the pad thai and the quest continues!
  • Get the Malaysian Pork Chops and The water spinach with bean curd!
  • Best won ton soup I've ever had. Roti canai is a must-have; they can give you vegetarian dipping sauce if you ask. :)
  • Great place for a fun BYO! Very accommodating, sans corkage fee, w/ top-notch food: The roti canai is a MUST have and you can't go wrong w/ curry tofu, pad thai, or pineapple fried rice as entrees!
  • Go boneless for the curry chicken. they also seem to like refilling your water after each sip you take..
  • Wait staff is beyond pushy. They asked is we were ready to order 12+ times within 7 minutes. Easy killer!
  • Try the Wanton noodles. Finish off with ABC dessert.
  • Fried ice cream here!
  • Get the Indian pancake and don't share! Not the best atmosphere, but the food is amazing.
  • Considering the levels of drunken sloppiness they tolerate, the food is surprisingly decent. A classic BYO destination for a reason
  • Thai basil chicken and roti canai!
  • BYOB with good, inexpensive food
  • Huge portions
  • Good food and especially fast service. Shanghai rice noodles were delicious!
