Banana Leaf

9896 Bellaire Blvd. Houston, TX 77036 | Outer Loop - SW | 713-271-2338

Location Description:

The second location of Banana Leaf offers the same solid menu of Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine, ranging from chow fun to Thai-style soft shell crab, but in a much larger space. You can get private rooms here or a spot in one of the palapa-shaded booths if you're lucky. It's still BYOB (with no corkage fee), but you'll still have to wait for a table on busy nights.
