Went for dinner tonight which happened to be a big let down. Had to wait for over half an hour for obvious reasons- pools baisakh weekend. Entire family was hungry but the dosa and uttapam served were sub-standard. Complaints about bland dosa, Masala and sticky uttapam earned no reactions from the man behind the counter. Instead he feigned ignorance and arrogance both. A disappointment altogether. Will not visit again.
Once and for all I had this doubt whether Kolkata really has a decent South Indian Restaurant, by decent I mean something of the highest order! Having lived in Chennai for over 5 years, the South Indian flavor has been an integral part of my life; however I would like to thank my Uncle who showed me the WAY! Banana leaf, as the name suggests, bear exemplary stampings of being an exceptional food joint serving delicious yet healthy South Indian food. A very decent get-up and ambiance coupled with brilliant recipes did wonders to my taste buds! The Cheese MASALA Dosa was OUT of the WORLD! The price, umm, it's on the higher side, but the quality matches it's quantitative measure! Looking forward to visit again!
