“Luke warm and greasy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Very disappointing meal. We both had a thali and it was luke warm and quite greasy. We would not go there again, preferring the Ghurka in Nevill St.

“Tasty Indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Wanted an easy Friday night and this proved to be just the ticket. Good menu, not too many dishes (I see this as a good thing), friendly service and portion size was just about right. The restaurant was full by the time we left and there was plenty of takeaway activity. Will be visiting again.

“Early evening meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

Lovely food, and service. Only issue was we ordered 2seperate curries to go with our meal, one wad a vindaloo, the other a madras. We could hardly tell the difference between them, and they both weren't very spicy. However they tasted ok, so we didn't complain, and it was a surprise was the restaurant, as they are usually superb.

“TO TASTE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

The 1st time I went to the Bayleaf the waiter recommended a dish. when it arrive he realised it was not hot enough for my pallet. Took it away and replaced it with the same dish with more kick. The best indian meal I've tasted in a long while and I've eaten all over the world so well done Bayleaf see you again soon.
