“A good tasty curry promptly delivered but accompaniments not good”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

We are regulars at Saim's Huddersfield, which used to be excellent but has really gone down of late, so thought we'd try Bayleaf again.

The Garlic Fish curry that arrived was tasty - a good depth of flavour and consistency and not too greasy. And the curry was delivered promptly. The pilau rice wasn't bad - a bright yellow concoction that had good flavour but was a bit oily - it had more the texture of a chinese fried rice than an indian pilau though

On the downside, the papadums that arrived were stale, with no crunch (as if they had been standing too long). And the roti was very dry - it didn't taste freshly made.

So would I use them again? Yes, There was enough promise in the fish curry to suggest that the chef knows what he's doing.

“Very good”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

Have had a few take aways from here and can honestly say that they have all been top quality! Even the delivery guys are smartly dressed and polite! Keep up the good work guys.

“Good takeaway”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Brighouse and fancied a curry so after reviewing on Tripadvisor I decided to order a takeaway from Bayleaf.
They delivered to time and the delivery man was very pleasant. The food was good, nice light naan bread, good quality and quantity chicken in the curry and overall a good chicken pathia (though lots of onions for my liking).
If I stayed there again I would consider re-ordering

“Take Away only, and not the best in Brighouse”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

Sorry but this hardly qualifies to be among the best 'restaurants' in Brighouse when it is actually a take away!

The one take away I ordered from the recently opened Bayleaf was delivered at the exact time predicted by the online ordering system. Other take aways I've ordered from online have delivered within the estimated time but usually much quicker than predicted.

Quality of food? my pakoras were soggy and the curry was swimming in oil. They don't do chapattis and I wasnt overly keen on the roti's. However my curry tasted lovely and it also warmed up very nicely the next day (good sized portion).

There are much better take aways in and around Brighouse, my personal favourite being Rastrick Spice, see the reviews on Just-eat for a fairer comparison.
