Great ambiance and authentic spicy Indian food. We had their Alu Gobhi, Saag paneer, Raita and rotis. The rotis were perfectly cooked and the vegetable dishes were spicy - just like regular home made indian food.

We (my colleague and I) visited this restaurant on January 26, 2017 for the lunch buffet. There were lot of varieties of Indian foods. The foods were not too spicy and not too oily. There were only Naans at the buffet, which didn't taste very good. The restaurant should also provide Rotis in the buffet meal.

Chicken Tikka Masala and chicken Shahi Korma were excellent. The naan was pretty good. The Kingfisher was cold. The curries were very good but spicy. Even ordered mild, they were spicy. Of no particular importance, I noticed there were almost no Indians working there. I think all the Indians in Baton Rouge are anesthesiologists.

This was our first visit here. The restaurant was clean & upscale; the prices were very affordable. The staff was also helpful. Most importantly, the food was incredible! It's the best Indian food we have ever had! If you're in the area & love Indian cuisine, I highly recommend The Bay Leaf!

This is one of my favorite lunch spots in Baton Rouge. I love their soup , the spicy vegetable mixture on the salad bar, and the spinach . They have so many different things to choose from. The buffet is about $13 a person . They always have some type of yummy dessert on the bar as well.

I was on a short getaway and I wanted to try something different. This Indian restaurant was exactly what I needed. They had a lunch buffet. The bone in goat was so tender. I really enjoyed the meal. This is a Top Star 5 restaurant. I recommend this place.
