Walking down the street we decided to stop n have a cold coffee with ice cream. It was watery with hardly any ice cream n it took them 1/2hr to deliver.

Banana leaf offers tasty south Indian platter in the middle of Kolkata. I had south Indian thali. Food was tasty and filling. I had to wait for 20+ minutes for my turn. Waiting time will be more for the families looking for a table, so plan accordingly.

If you are looking for good authentic south indian food near lake market this is one option. The interior is nice and cosy. The price is a little more than the adjacent Prema Villa. Rava dosa and paper dosa is a must. So is the coffeee and icecream

This restaurant, located near the Lake Mall, is purely a south indian one. They offer all varieties of south indian delicacies at a very reasonable price. This A.c. restaurant is not a very big one hence in the evenings, one has to wait for quite some time to get a seat. Amongst all varieties, I would particularly suggest to go... More

Recently, I have visited this restaurant with my grandmother. This is a strictly vegetarian restaurant. The ambience of the hotel is very nice. Specially, the south indian dishes are excellent. The restaurant has car parking area available.

I may kick-off a controversy by the heading but this is what I really feel. I can swear by the button idlis , cheese dosa and simmering rasam. Muuaaahhh...Too tempting and highly recommended.
