After tasting south Indian food at various places, I would rate this restaurant very high for serving absolutely stunning dosas and providing a nice ambience. We had four members in our group and we ordered 3 different types of dosas - dhania butter masala dosa, onion butter masala dosa and podi butter masala dosa. Each variety was extremely enjoyable to... More

You will get your meal on Real Banana Leaf (Pure South Indian Style). Foods Taste great. Try Dahi Vada, Sambar Vada, Masala Dosa. Restaurant is very clean and not much crowded. You can relax and enjoy the food.

The restaurant tucked away in an old Hotel called Komala Vilas, diagonally opposite Lake Market. A great place to go a satisfy one's craving for Dosa, vada, or a South Indian Thali! I wouldn't call it a gourmet place, but hey then that's not why one goes there. The restaurant is clean and tidy, aircon works well which is a... More

The dosa was a disappointment. Not crispy enough and they took ages to serve. Coffee was good and so was the vada. Waiter mixed up the two dosa orders while serving and when asked for plain water brought chilled water. Fairly clean restaurant with A.C. in the middle of Lake Market.

Clean, good food, if that matters head towards Banana Leaf. No frills, no gimmic ..... veg food good enough for an essentially non-veg person like me to write good words for a veg restaurant. A special mention for their Sambhar and yes, beware of weekends ... too crowded

Authentic Tamil dishes by south Indian cook, at moderate to slight high price. The place is very old and has a very high reputation also.

If you happen to be near Lake Market in south Kolkata, do try the famous cheese dosas here. I have never tasted better dosas even in south India, which is home to this snack. The Idly, Uthapam and vandals are also great here. Price wise it is just a little on the higher side but worth every Rupee of it.

I was not impressed with the ambience of the restaurant because of its noisy and dusty neibhourhood unique to Kolkata and the some what conjusted building over crowded with patrons making the premises difficult to maintain in a spic and span condition. The waiters also appeared tired and not so well groomed. All that vanished when I had the first... More
