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. They also serve huge "thalis" or combination meals which are very reasonably priced. This eatery is an excellent dining-room style environment for hot, fresh, made-to-order South Indian fare and very suitable for... More

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!

Housed in the KOMALA VILAS HOTEL complex, BANANA LEAF restaurant is certainly a paradise for SOUTH INDIAN VEGETARIAN FOOD. We felt as if we were in Chennai, whenever we visited this restaurant. We get variety of south Indian dishes with superb taste. Dining area is clean and spacious. We found many north Indian friends enjoying the food with family. They... More

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

We tried the thali , Dahi vada and the Rava masala dosa. The thali was good , filling and puris crisp. The Dahi vada was dipped in chilled yogurt and I liked it, though others didn't appreciate the sweet yogurt. Rava Masala dosa was good and like it should have been. Worth a go. And worth a go when your... More
