Banana Leaf

East Brisbane

There's a new shining star in East Brisbane - Banana Leaf, serving top-notch Thai fare in a funky setting.

Located on the corner of Wellington and Mowbray, the casual decor - retro Thai movie posters, wicker lamp shades and timber bar - belies the quality of the food at this family run restaurant, owned by Thien (former chef at My Thai) and his wife Bibi.

Mains range from pad Thai and traditional jasmine fried rice to stir fries and curries; while chef's signature dishes include slow cooked pork belly with dry shitake mushrooms and potatoes and king prawn hot and sour creamy soup served with rice.

Banana Leaf East Brisbane's dessert

Open for lunch Monday through Friday, most midday meals come in under $10 including a free soft drink.  Try the authentic massaman beef curry or char grilled pork Turkish sandwich with Thai salad and tamarind sauce. But make sure to save some room for dessert:  black sticky rice with coconut milk, purple tapioca in sweet and salty coconut milk or warm taro custard cake with sticky coconut rice and salty butterscotch sauce.
