“Authentic south Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is a good restaurant which offers south Indian dishes. Menu has lot of varieties to choose according to choice. Mulligatawny soup is a good option to start with. Not expensive and food items were value for money. Butter soft uttapam and methi garlic dosa were good in taste.

“Bad Service, Arguing Staff and Not so impressive food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I had visited the restaurant for south Indian dinner. They boast of a great variety of south Indian dishes on the Menu Card. When we went in there were quite a few tables empty. Expecting quick service, we felt happy on visiting at such time. The Menu card came in quicker that water and the cutlery though. After 3-4 "Excuse Me" shouts from yours tryly and a request to the guy who brought water, one gentleman appeared to take order but he sasheyed to the next table, pointing to another of his colleague, who to my amusement went to another table.
The gentleman finally appeared and upon asking clarified that the first guy has a different area so even if he was free and the customer waiting he cannot take order. This guy was in the kitchen (don't know why ??) and per him he saw the other table first and hence he has to take the order. QUITE A COURT ROOM PROCEEDING I MUST SAY.

Lets get to the food. Some of the fancy named dosas were as average in taste as the political condition of the country and the best tasting was Udipi Masal Dosa. We had "Rajni" dosa and I must say "rajni " did a poor job !!!.

Mysore Cheese Masala Dosa has its own story. It seemed they got it from Mysore (Post clarifying 10 mins after taking order) as it would take as long for one to travel from Mysore to Thane and perhaps in the hurry the crispiness and masala was missing.

All in all not a good experience !!! Not recomended.

Banana leaf offers very delicious south indian (kerala) food at reasonable and affordable prices. Restaurant is very hygienic and service is very good.

Try methi garlic dosa. It's awesome.

“Excellent South Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

I came down to the Banana Leaf with my wife and parents with quite a lot of expectations. The restaurant was located at the Korum mall in Thane. Unlike the typical Udupi style food served in most restaurants of Thane, Bana Leaf had a wide variety of South Indian items on their menu which are very uncommonly seen in Thane or Mumbai. We had coconut water as a refresher cum appetizer. For the first course we had an idly platter which consisted of different varieties of idlys (tomato, lemon, kanchipuram, spinach, mini) served with sambar and two types of chutneys. The idlys were well cooked and tasted really nice. For the second course, we had a masala dosa, paratha kurma and appam avaial. The three dishes were very good, not too oily and quite filling.The taste was definitely not 100% genuine (as I have stayed in the Southern states for quite some time), but had a regional twist to them. The service, ambience and location were all good as well. The rates are on the higher side, but a bill of around 300 - 500 per person for a family of four on a special occasion may not feel that high. Overall a very good restaurant.
