Consistently great food

My partner and I always eat here whenever we're in Cairns and the food is consistently good. Always tasty, yummy and consistent.

Excellent flavors and service. Makes me want to go to Bali. Had a duck curry and a vegetarian curry. Both great.

We loved it all. Service was excellent, food was better, with genuine Balinese chef sharing their amazing food. Setting with fire and plants and enough space inbetween other tables to have your own privacy. We could have eaten here every night.....your taste buds will be blown away. (cocktails are a little dear though). Overall wonderful.

We had just booked a trip to Bali so we figured we'd celebrate with some traditional food. So so good. The fried noodle dish was amazing and so was the the chicken curry. Very reasonable prices for a lot of great food.

Have been to Bayleaf on numerous occasions while living in Cairns and again last night. In the 6 years I have been away from Cairns the food has remained consistently tasty and well priced. We shared an entree of mixed satay. Meat was cooked well and the satay sauce was flavoursome. For main course we shared a delicious chicken curry... More

Been to bayleaf twice, definitely heading for a third time. Setting is great, sat outdoors both times, enough space between tables to not feel like your in other people's conversations which I find a problem in some restaurants. Great little garden. Food is amazing, probably the best I've eaten in Cairns and although "Bali" style I found plenty of dishes... More

We were walking by and were captivated by the ambiance of Bayleaf. Many outdoor seats and beautiful lighting. We ordered sate which was very good and I appreciate the presentation but serving it on a smoking grill is bothersome and unnecessary. The nasi goreng was very good as was the shrimp curry. Our server was completely indifferent and really seemed... More

Away from the main city (only just), is the Bayleaf restaurant - it's been in Cairns forever and has remained a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. The food has always been excellent but it seems to keep getting better. I went recently with my friend and we have the banquet which is enormous but you can stagger when... More
