Experience Asia in Davao at Banana Leaf Restaurant, SM Lanang Premier

| Davao Reviews | May 28, 2013

It was our second time dining in this restaurant but, just like the first, still we were captivated!  Here’s why: the place really offers a unique dining experience that keeps us coming back. And so, with the aim of sharing that ‘experience’ to Davao Portal loyal followers – and the rest of the readers – I have written this post.

Here’s our dining experience (the second time around).

A Malaysian-dressed female staff welcomed us with a warm smile, and a male waiter led us to our table with real banana leaves placed on it to be used as alternative to plates. The place had a comfortable and cozy ambience, which made me feel at home.
