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.
