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. The Sambar is different from what is served in the most of the south indian... More

If somebody wants to have good quality south Indian food then this is the place to be. The ambience is nothing great and the AC is just comfortable. Service is fast and the food is simply amazing.

It offers authentic south Indian foods. During my stay in Kolkata I had enjoyed the foods here. It is located near Kalighat Metro Station. Nearest bus stop is Lake Market. Don't Miss the Filter coffee in this hotel.

If one wants to have South Indian food this is the place. It is not a great big place and not fancy. It is airconditioned and comfortable but the food is excellent. It is located right opposite Lake Mall and entrance is quite inconspicuous. The quality of food the above par and so is the taste.

The best restaurant if you want to have authentic south Indian dishes. Food is just too good. However ambience needs a makeover. Prices are also reasonable.

We had dosas and coffee. Dosas were simple but quite tasty. Coffee was at its best. The ambiance was definitely very good and more importantly the restaurant is having AC. However, there are a few points, which i think the restaurant group may need to look into - a) Its web site can have the exact location, parking details and... More

Loved the food here. If your in Calcutta and looking for South Indian food..then look no further than Banana Leaf. These guys know what they do and have been around forever (over 30 yrs) dishing out the best. Due to the rush, one will have to have to wait.
