With a newspaper vendor and a panwala in the front, i remember this place from my childhood days in Kolkata. During my trips to kolkata, always made it a point to have a meal or two at this very popular... More

Taste is good compared to other south Indian restaurant in Kolkata. Dosas and Sambar are authentic. Issue with cleanliness and seating spaces are not comfortable

The Banana Leaf's dosas and vadas are really tasty. And their filter coffee simply awesome. The service is very very fast and has an old-world no nonsense efficiency.

We were a group of 23 people and the restaurant accommodated us by opening a separate room. The service was great and the food was excellent. Highly recommended!

I kind of love south Indian food. I had heard a lot about banana leaf but never got around to actually dine here until this sunday. One of the things which I personally didn't like was the ambience and the decor of the restaurant. It felt really plain and unexciting unlike Anand, if you know what I mean. But moving... More
