Profile

This venue is closed.

Fluorescent lighting and Formica tables may give Banana Leaf a colorless feel, but this quick Bay Ridge takeout spot boasts a vivid menu: traditional Malay fare, which embraces dishes influenced by Chinese, Thai and Indian cuisines. Just as the fixtures of the historically Italian neighborhood thrive on pasta, this spot knows its noodles which come both appealingly varied and cheap; a choice of four kinds of rice, such as the brown, chewy Nasi Kunyit, is the other starch option. Among the large entrées, the steamy roasted duck, glazed with a sweet peanut sauce, has a thin layer of fat and crisp skin, and comes with gummy candy-like lychee fruit stuffed with whole chestnuts. The Ikan Pangang pairs a moist, flaky white skate filet with a spicy ginger-chili eggplant-okra mash, an appealing mix of hot and mild. If you don’t mind soup for dessert, the bowl of Buboh Chacha holds a warm, sugar-saturated coconut broth with sweet potatoes and little tapioca pearls nestled at the bottom.
