“SOUTH INDIAN CLASSIC”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Banana Leaf is the quintessential South Indian restaurant, good for both “meals” and “tiffin,” washed down by strong filter coffee. It is attached to a small traditional hotel, and offers breakfast as early as 8 am. It remains open for lunch, dinner and everything in between!

The menu is basic, but attractively presented. The décor is functional and uncluttered. The food is invariably served fresh and piping hot. The service is prompt and cheerful. The prices are quite reasonable – a five hundred rupee note covers three or even four persons.

Highly recommended for inexpensive family outings.

“A true gem of South Indian food in Kolkata”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

I'm Bengali, but grew up in America. I love South Indian food and really enjoyed the Banana Leaf. The Rava dosa was delicious and the thalis have great food. Great service, can't wait to visit again!

“south India in kolkata”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Its by far the best south Indian restaurant iv been to in the city..tried their appams...family dosa which is a show stealer and their uttapams... Must mention thier sambar and chutneys are so authentic...that you would want to keep having them.They of course fill your bowl when you finish.Iv always preferred south Indian in the metro galli near esplanade...but this is a far better option however ..costlier.
