One portion of the free-flow rice and veggies. It may be free-flow but it's $4.

I'm always so conflicted about lassi. It's semi interesting, but I can't stand yogurt.

Loving this basmati Briyani which is light and fluffy and goes so well with the first head curry .

For 4 dollars, you get unlimited refill of 2 vegetable sides and rice .

How nice !

Banana leaf is the only place I go to when I need a hot and steaming fish head curry . I actually prefer Indian fish head curry because it is not mixed with coconut milk like the ones from tze char places which leave you pretty jelat.

A total of 30 spices are used to make this fish head curry .

The fish is always fresh and I love how they give complimentary crackers .

Order a portion of their basmati Briyani rice which comes with 2 side vegetables and you are ready for a sumptuous treat .

Very reasonably priced at 24 dollars .

I came for this and the sauce really delivered. It's so rich, albeit silently spicy. However, it got jelak after a while. The chicken on the other hand was quite ordinary.

Chinese-style stir-fried cauliflower. No wonder it tasted like straight out of zichar hahaha. Quite shiok.
