Tucked away into a dreary side street, Banana Leaf is the restaurant attached to Hotel Komala Vilas. We actually walked through some footpath shops to get to its entrance. It's a true hidden gem of authentic South Indian tiffin in the heart of East India. It offers the standard dosa idli vada type menu with some creative new offerings. It's... More

I was staying in Hotel Komala Vilas and they gave food coupon for breakfast. We had 5 plain dosa and 5 idlies. Upon giving the coupon the guy in counter told me the coupon is only valid for one dish which has one dosa, idly and vada (it was not mentioned/written anywhere). So 5 of us ate less than what...

This restaurant serves authentic South Indian Food and it lived up to it's expectation in terms of food. The ambiance was modest and there is a scope of more south indian touch to the decor. The banana leaf should have been in the shape of the logo of the restaurant. Over all it was a nice experience as the food... More

Down to earth, quick service, air conditioned, great place for a quick meal. Their mini- tiffin is worth it. It has a little bit of several items:dosa, idli, upma, a sweet dish, and vada. Highly recommended!

Authentic and tasty South Indian dishes, good service, and a clean, organized decor make for a great experience! Easy to find, metro friendly, and reasonable prices, too. Always busy, but there's plenty of seating so chance are that you'll only wait for a table on Sundays.

This is the place to be if you are looking for Authentic South Indian Food in South Kolkata. But Sundays are the days when you need to wait in a queue since most people rush in on Sunday evening. Special menu will help u get the best flavour of the day.
