The Banana Leaf in Sevenoaks offers a great overall dining experince with arguably the best Indian food in the area and really attentive and friendly staff. We always ask if Khalis is there when we book as he is the main ingredient and we typically order whatever he recommends as that has never failed to impress.

Without doubt the best Indian restaurant in this area and has built up quite a following. Khalis and his team prepare delicious freshly cooked food with passion and flair. The place is also spotlessly clean. Although this is slightly off the beaten track this place is well worth a visit.

Tucked away in its own back street the Banana Leaf is a little oasis of a curry house. Fantastic staff with an entertaining chef and the food is always top standard. A must try for anyone in the area.

We have been coming here regularly for years. I can only remember a couple of occasions when the food was other than superb, and both times the chef Khalis was away.

Just to vary things, we often order dishes that are not on the menu, and Khalis is very flexible about cooking them (though occasionally a new waiter might say no). What I like about the food here is that it is not at all greasy, and the sugar and salt content are low too -- just a very well blended combination of spices and fresh well-cooked ingredients. Khalis generally comes out of the kitchen to ask us how we feel about the cooking. Customers must be giving him useful feedback, because the curries just get better and better.

I like the wine list too. The Gewurztraminer and Sancerre go really well with curry, if you like a white wine.

This restaurant.is by far the best restaurant in the area.

I have been to dozens of Indian restaurants, and their food is the finest I have ever tasted.

The staff are friendly, and know the tradition and history behind each dish, which shows a dedicated love and respect for their culture and their job.

The atmosphere is special, as the restaurant is tastefully and thoughtfully decorated.

There is even a wine bar.

Once a month, the restaurant hosts a Music Night during which a professional musical artist impersonator is hired for the entertainment of the public.

The Banana Leaf is definately in a class of its own.

Enjoy!
