Banana Leaf is a spot on for all our South Indian Food craving. Starting from Crispy Dosas ,Mini Idli’s ,Sambar vada and the well famous Filter Coffee a.k.a Filter Kappi we can get there.
We accidentally hopped into it once in the Tea time ! And fell in love with it.
The feeling of having Filter Kappi coupled with hot medu vada is such a bliss ! That too in a place,where such combos are never well known . I personally feel native food is the only thing that will connect us and make us feel good when we live far from our home and that is why I love this restaurant. First thing is the food,then the people somehow I tend to hear tamil speaking people which is not common otherwise.
To my surprise many North Indians love the food there. I see most of them ordering the IDLI PLATTER(It was so colourful,I couldn’t stop drooling at it and now please stop judging me ,it was that colourful)
About the restaurant
Though there are many Banana Leaf am not sure if they are branches ,but the one I am talking about it located at R CITY Mall,Ghatkopar .Mumbai.
FOOD and MENU
The restaurant is open all the time. But if you need a South Indian Thali please be on time. Otherwise its fine. I had medu vada(a plate of six) dipped in Sambhar and Mini Idli ( which is quite a rare sight ) along with Filter Kaapi for a price of approximately Rs.300(including tax) .Actually quite nominal for such a high quality restaurant.
We had also tried South Indian Thali, which had rice/dhal rice(your choice) , Paratta/appam,along with other vegetables and rasam. Elaneer Payasam(a dessert) which is once again a delicate recipe which is rare even in South India was present here.
We also tried the Bismilla bath which was delicious. They serve us MELAGU RASAM which is simply super ! All my cravings were satisfied .
If you are planning to visit,book an appointment because on weekends its crowded particularly at lunch. My best time would for a hot Kappi and Vada (Deadly combo !)
