Lovely Experience

We get to eat authentic south indian food out here apart from dosa,idli,vada uttapam,they even serve various south indian meals which is a complete thali with different dishes which makes it a complete meal. After the food one should try the coffee or the horlics which they serve is really tasty.

Ad usual whenever in Kolkata and planning to have some authentic South Indian dishes, Banana leaf is remembered. Food was really good but this time I noticed that the curd portion of Dahivada was too liquid. It should be little more thicker.

The best and my favorite south indian eatery in kolkata has just opened a new branch in Salt Lake Sec V, at Globsyn building, near College More. The food should be good, found out that today was just the inauguration and proper opening in a couple of days, as it is owned and operated by the same owner and staff... More

We keep going back to Banana Leaf. That is even after the fact that we feel like the Satyajit Ray “Ashani Sanket” experience, a movie based on the great Bengal Famine of 1942. You sit in an “AC” restaurant and dine to glory, while long queues of impoverished, hungry, thirsty and impatient diners wait long for their turn. Of course,... More

Great South Indian Place. In fact it is part of Komola Vilas (one of the original South indian joints in the city.) They serve the usual varity of South indian snacks and also serve meals and other items that are not found in many places.
