Avoid this restaurant

I have been to the Bangkok Thai restaurant around the corner many, many times and decided this weekend to try something new. Unfortunately that was a very bad decision this time because I decided to go to Banana Island. Comparatively not only was Banana Island a waste of money but it literally made me sick. I'm not sure how to give it zero stars above, but that's the real rating \r \r This restaurant had a comf... view more

Worst food, service, & prices

This place is horrible! \r \r Terrible long wait, mostly teenagers, not enough waiting area to sit. \r \r The waiters keep trying to push appetizers and drinks on you. They charge for every coke refill. \r \r The food is horrible. They do have a flashy roti made in center of room for show but it was heavy and greasy, not like its supposed to be. But worst of all the food was horrible, had to have them take the ... view more

Worst Fish - Worst Service in Bay Area

This place is way over rated. The service was very slow, everything from taking our order, serving the food, refilling water, taking desert order, bringing the bill, everything was slow. Had to practically beg for water. Instead of providing free refills of coke like most places they charge for every glass of coke. The tea was cold. We ordered live fish, it was horrible! We practically live on fresh fish, 5 or 6 time... view more

The worst Singaporean & Malaysian dish I ever tasted in the bay area.

The Hainan chicken, bakut teh, kwei tiauw and the chicken rice do not even close to the discripton and so far remove from the real thing in both country. I live in singapore and I am an executive chef for over 20 years.

Nothing extraoridnary

After hearing only good stuff about Banana Island, I had to try it. I ordered what people on citysearch had suggested which are the roti something (curry with Indian pancake/bread) and pineapple fried rice. The roti could have been better if it was spicy. Not too spicy just a little bit. The pineapple fried rice was really cool because it is served in a pineapple. However, I didn't taste anything. I barely tast... view more

My family's favorite spot.

My family are regulars here.\r \r When we step in, we usually have pretty prompt seating (at our usual table). I love this place because they mix up all kinds of good Asian food.. and I love variety! \r \r What do I recommend? Definitely start with the roti cani. It's what the guy is flipping and spinning in the middle of the restaurant. That guy has skills because roti can be hard to be prepare. Then I like the ... view more

good alternative to Hong Kong-style Chinese food

My Mom and I went to this Singapore/Malaysian restaurant on a Sunday at 11:45am. Though it was crowded, we did not need to wait for a table. We ordered: roti canal (the indian pancake $3.50), satay chicken and beef ($7.50), pineapple fried rice ($8.95), sarang seafood ($13.95) and ice kacang ($3.95). We were pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the pineapple fried rice which was served in a carved-out pineap... view more

Bad service and mediocre food

I went there for dinner with a friend last night and the service was unbelievably bad. My friend asked for recommendation since she's a vegetarian, and he just pointed out what's available for vegetarians. Then the waitresses just dropped our food on the table as if it was something she wanted to get rid off. Then the food, simple seafood and vegetarian fried rice, tasted old, bland, and half-cooked. ON my black l... view more

Good food & atmosphere but slow service

This is a good restaurant to go to as a group. Try not to go there as a couple on the weekend especially for dinner, it's a little too noisy. The food was good and the price was fair. Service was slow, but you can't expect much from a busy asian restaurant, just go for the food!

Okay Food, Slow Service

If you must eat here, get the bread that comes with curry. It's fun to watch the chefs make it. Other than that, it's quite overrated and the service was quite slow and the staff wasn't very attentive.
