Good for hardcore southies and experimenters

The restaurant is at a good location on not-very-crowded end fo the Juhu Versova link road and offers valet parking.

There are very few places in Mumbai that serve authentic Madras kind of food. Banana Leaf comes closest. They serve "sambaar" and not "samber" that Udipi or Mangalorean restaurants serve, if you know what I mean. :-) Quantities are sumptuous and they have a range of chutneys that are continuously replenished. I would urge you to try out their Madurai... More

Love the Banana Leaf restaurant. Best masala dosa I have ever had! It is worth the long wait times at this popular and crowded restaurant. Extensive menu and excellent service.

Banana Leaf had great ambience and the food is good too. Slightly heavy on the pocket though. Planning for a weekend dinner - keep a buffer of 50-60 minutes of waiting time.

As Vegetarians, our food choices are limited and thus our family thus tends to explore. Banana Leaf has an extensive selection to pick from, asides to main courses. We have been to both this as well as at the Kandivali outlet and each visit was enjoyable. The food is authentic and the ambiance good. Always very crowded though and I... More

This restaurant has become quite a brand, hence there is always a moderate, if not heavy crowd. This was our second visit, but we could not get a table first time because of Onam, but on this occasion the crowd was moderate and we could get a place to sit in spite of it being a Sunday. The fare is... More

We went there 2 times with the family, and I am normally hesitant to food that I am not aware of but since we were going to Kerala I have decided to experience a bit of their food before reaching there. Really amazing, very nice south-Indian food.
