The décor is functional and uncluttered. The... More

I'm Bengali, but grew up in America. I love South Indian food and really enjoyed the Banana Leaf. The Rava dosa was delicious and the thalis have great food. Great service, can't wait to visit again!

For a city not know for its South Indian cuisine, this inexpensive hideout of a restaurant is excellent.

Favorite restaurant in all of Kolkata. exceptionally good food, fast service. very affordable. The meals are wonderful and a great way to enjoy a lot of different food and flavors. This will likely be my first stop next time I am back in Kolkata.

If you are a fan of South Indian food then this is a place for you in the Bengali city. This is my personal favourite too for the South Indian thalis and also for all kinds of Dosas...

Unbelievable but a true flavour of South Indian food in the heart of Kolkata. Mouth watering taste, nice service and in short value for money. I had been there several times during my stay at Kolkata and would still love to be back again.
