The beautiful banana leaves of tropical Sri Lanka have been serving as dishes for some of the world's best street cuisine for centuries.  Whether it's kothu or curry you're looking for, it will be served to you delicious and hot right in a banana leaf.  As for silverware, you won't need that in Sri Lanka!  As a fine dining restaurant, we provide silverware of course, but in Sri Lanka we just eat with the five spoons on our right hand.

Provides a nice unique atmosphere. Very good service. I have been here twice including once as a wedding lunch. Wonderful menu. Great food. The stuffed pineapple wasn't quite as good as I was expecting. They have a lot of different curry items that are really good. All of there beef items were really tasty.

Went there for a birthday with about 8 people, we all got something different. One of the dishes was good, the other seven were over priced and bland. Our servers, yes two, we're both frantically running around and unattentive to our needs. Yes we were a pretty big group but one of our plates took an extra 30 min and it usually took 5 to 10 min to get anything else. I recommend The Thia House in lehi, Ganesh (Indian food) or Thia Village in AF not exactly the same but WAY better food and service!

Went here to try different foods. Place is kind of dirty. Staff was very nice. I have not eatin this type of food before so it's hard to say if the food was below part or that I just did not care for it.

The Banana Leaf offers unique cuisine and our meal was very good. We all ordered different dishes and all of them were distinct and delicious. The Aloe Vera drink was also outstanding.

Good food. A bit pricey. Depends on your taste.

We ate here after it first opened and we simply ADORED the place! The flavors were like a party in our mouths. We moved away and hadn't been back until this past weekend when we went for our anniversary. I noticed that the landscaping wasn't kept up like before, railings were in disrepair, etc., and wondered if what I was seeing on the outside might reflect changes on the inside as well. Unfortunately, that was exactly the case. We arrived at 6 pm. on Sat., and there was only one other couple dining. Hmmm. No one else came in until we were finishing up. The first time we ate there, it was packed. There were two servers who seemed cheerful and nice. It was obvious that they didn't have much to do, though. They sat at another table, propping their feet up on the bench. Our water glasses were empty but it took quite a long time for that to be noticed since they were just visiting away and in their own little world. The same happened when we'd finished and no one noticed. The food, though, was the biggest disappointment. I ordered a garlic shrimp sautee. It was served sizzling and looked good. However, one bite in and I realized I was eating FROZEN MIXED VEGETABLES. I could tell by the taste, texture, and cut of them. So obvious, and so disappointing. You might expect that at Denny's restaurant, but not at a decent Asian place like this, at the price of $14.99. My husband got a coconut curry and it was fine, nothing bad, nothing special. Before going, we had considered the idea of getting a gift certificate for someone else, but thankfully we waited until we'd eaten there to make the decision. It was a disappointment from start to finish and I would definitely not recommend the place anymore. Very unfortunate because it had been fabulous at one time.

I loved it! Everything was great and it's a cool environment. The food was amazing! It was a bit pricey but still worth it.
