If you are looking for vegetarian south Indian food then this place is one of the best options. Visited this place for few times. Price wise it's ok but if they increase cleanliness that will be better. Food is really very good and it's authentic South Indian .

Banana Leaf was right near my guest house, so I ate there a couple times. It was always very busy and seems to be a popular place with locals. Prices were fair, food was decent, and service was quick. They had a guy that spoke good English which was great since I am a westerner and don't know the local... More

Dosa was average, you can get this kind of dosa in any standard restaurant of kolkata. So let me make it clear that this place is not very special and delicate place for south indian food.
