The taste of the food served in this hotel is fine. But it caused a serious dysentery to all of my family including my three year old daughter. I was staying at the pipal tree hotel with my family and decided to have a south Indian breakfast . When I searched Zomato.com banana leaf had nice reviews and ratings so... More

I live quite far away from this place. But in Calcutta, which is incredibly famous for its food options, this place is worth the pain of traveling. This place serves amazing dosas, and the piping hot coffees coming through is all good.

I ate here one lunchtime with friends. The food is good quality and reasonably priced, and the menu has a good range of options. Service is quick and efficient.

They say that a sign of a good restaurant is when people from its own area of cuisine regularly dine there. There is no shortage of South Indians frequenting Banana Leaf - and with very good reason. This is one of the best South Indian vegetarian restaurants in Calcutta, because of the excellence of its food. It's certainly not a... More

If you are looking for vegetarian south Indian food then this place is one of the best options. Visited this place for few times. Price wise it's ok but if they increase cleanliness that will be better. Food is really very good and it's authentic South Indian .

The Banana Leaf in Kolkata presents a very soothing and homely atmosphere with earth colours. The restaurant itself has chefs from South India to serve authentic dishes as well as evolving new South Indian dishes. One of the best things that I loved about the restaurant is that it preserves its ethinicity by serving their food on banana leaves. It... More
