I've been to Banana Leaf a few times now, and it's always excellent, The food is delicious and you can get it very spicy (but flavourful) too if you like. It's nice to try some Sri Lankan specialities along with more traditional Indian curries. Service...More

Went here for dinner and the food was delicious. The Dosa was brilliant! The only downside was that the service wasn't amazing, but completely understandable as there was one man serving the whole place. Would still definitely go back.

This has been one my favorite places to get Indian food in Cambridge (i.e., to get a "curry", if you're British). I've really enjoyed their chicken koththu roti and aloo veechu paratha particularly. Service is not always great, so be patient if you're dining in....More

Can’t say, but the restaurant is relatively inexpensive (with presumably low profit margins).
