The ancient tradition of serving food on a freshly cut Banana leaf has its roots in India. Here in Singapore, the widely popular practice of eating from a banana leaf can be traced back to The Banana Leaf Apolo. The Banana Leaf Apolo has been serving its food on a banana leaf to patrons since it opened its doors in 1974. This has become our signature! At The Banana Leaf Apolo, this practice is more than just a tradition – it is a science!

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
"Visited this restaurant after a recommendation from the taxi driver! Always a good way of finding something good and where the locals would go. Your food is served on a plate covered with a banana leaf, nice touch. Tiger beers was excellent and not too pricy by Singapore standards. Food was good and plentiful. Service was excellent too."
"I am actually not a big fan of Biriyani but I must say that the chicken Biriyani at Apolo is just amazing!!!! The rice is fluffy and has so much flavour. The first place I will go to once I am back in Singapore is definitely Apolo."
The Entertainment was Top Notch!"
