“Best dinner I had in India!!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Loved this place!!

As you climb the stairs the restaurant to the right looks nicer, but it was empty. I had heard about the Plantain Leaf and could see people in there so in we went!

Ahh it was lovely!! It's 100% veggie so that was refreshing to have so much choice.

The food was all so nice and actually was spicy! Which amazingly I found difficult to find in India.

Ended up going back the next night as it was so lovely.

Nom nom nom!!!!!

“Once the best, now not bad...”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is one of the pure vegetarian restaurant situated in the main road in the centre of Calangute.
Years ago I used to have dinner there very often since it was probably the best pure veg in town.
Once it occupies the entire last floor of the building but today another restaurant (western style) is
next to it on the other side. The atmosphere is not so happy and lights are too cold! Staff serving at the table is not motivated but give a tip to the young boys and maybe service will be better...and they will smile! Food is still quite good and special thali one of the best you can have in town. Try also traditional paper dosa and chana masala (really tasty)...sure You'll like them.

“Veg Indian restaurant in Calangute”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Plantain Leaf is located in Calangute and is perhaps one of few restaurants which serve real South Indian khana in the area. Dosas, idlis, thalis and much more are available at reasonable price. Tourists are rare there it's more popular with lndians.The place is clean, food is tasty. There is a Coffee Day nearby too.

“Give it a miss”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

It may be called the plantain leaf but there's nothing special about it. it serves decent south indian stuff, but the restaurant decor is not maintained. The sofas stink while the staff consists of none other than young boys who do not know how to handle customers.

The only good thing was the size of the onion utappam which is more than what one gets in good udupi hotels. The taste was decent, but could have been better. If you go, order only food that has been freshly prepared.
