Authentic South Indian Cuisine - Slightly Overpriced

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.

The different types of idlis are great. Variegated menu with Coorg idli to lemon rice to hot malt drink and everything in between. I would choose this any day over an Udupi.

South-Indian restaurants in Mumbai have long been dismissed as idli-dosa snack joints. Few restaurants can claim to offer a detailed south-indian menu as this one. Unlike most south-indian restaurants, one can expect a nice ambiance and conversation in Banana Leaf. A place you can go to with guests, kids, family, friends alike. They offer valet parking, which is a big... More

We have visited this place no. Of times. The ambience of this place itself makes you feel that you are in South India with some traditional music in the background . The dishes here are different from the regular idli dosa we have in other hotels which means they are very authentic. Sambhar and chutney are refilled every time .... More

This is probably the best south Indian veg food restaurant in Andheri (West). I have been here before and my kids really love this place. The atmosphere is good and they serve a wide variety of items to tickle everybody's taste buds. I would definitely recommend that you make reservations for this place otherwise it could mean a long waiting... More
