Food quite good, especially for location, but service awful

I didn't expect much from the Indian food near the airport, but it was actually quite good. The problem was that we arrived at 9.30 on a Friday, after checking that they were open until 10PM. The server turned us away. I complained and another server checked with the kitchen, who then made our... read more

Garlic Naan, Paratha, Lamb Dopiaza, Prawn Tikka Masala. Almost empty on a Friday night at 8 pm (Maybe people eat early here?), so service was quite fast, although it took forever to get the check. Of course, they may have felt we wanted to stay and chat. I would highly recommend this place.

Met some friends here for dinner on a Friday night. Place was not busy, but one of our party of 6 had been there before and loved the food. We tried a variety of foods. Most were good. One person ordered her meal extra mild and it was still so hot-spicy that she could only have a few bites. Two... More

I work in the Baltimore area a lot and always stay in a hotel in the Linthicum Heights area. I love Indian food and was thrilled to see The Bay Leaf Restaurant when I first visited in early December 2014. Since then, the restaurant has had at least two chefs and I suspect they are on their third one now.... More

The restaurant is located close to the BWI airport and I selected the lunch buffet. The food was tasty, hot and there was a pretty good variety of food to choose from.

The website and trip advisor said they were open from 10am till 10pm. I went around noon and they had already closed and pretty much kicked me out. Yeah, very disappointed.

Bay Leaf has great Indian food near the BWI Airport tucked in a small strip of stores. For a restaurant located near an airport and airport motels the food was surprisingly good. The staff was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was modern and clean. I had the tandoori chicken and garlic naan. I also wanted saag paneer but did not... More

A colleague and I went there last night. It was quiet, mainly because there was the Army vs Navy game on in the area that night. I had the lamb samosas and they were good. My colleague had the vegetarian samosa with chick peas and enjoyed them but felt they were a little spicy for him. I then had the... More

I think this is some very good Indian cuisine. I'm always surprised that it's not busier with all the hotels and travelers that are nearby. One major downside is they do not serve alcohol. I nice beer or wine with your meal sure would be nice. I will still keep going however.
