Best Indian in Frome by a long way. Excellent service, takeaway service is very good. Food is superb, nice freshly cooked Indian food. Great menu rather than the standard tired old mush most Indian restaurants in Frome serve. Will definitely go back.

This has got to be my favourite Indian restaurant in the area. The front of house manager has worked in several local Indian restaurants/take aways and sets high standards. Staff are efficient and welcoming. The food was good and with prompt service made for an easy evening. Prices are pretty good as well. It's a converted roadside pub (The Ship)... More

Took my son here last night for meal as we were staying locally. The food was incredible, staff attentive and a lovely atmosphere. The food was fresh tasty and was not oily like a lot of Indian food. I will be back the next time I am in the area. My son loved it and he is hard to please.

Just got back from the Bay Leaf and everything was excellent from the staff to the food. We opted for the special offer of any starter, main & rice, bread or chips for 9.90 & available on Mon & Tuesday. We'll be back again soon.

The choice of dishes is immense, with choices that I have not come across in many other restaurants. The service is swift, friendly and attentive, without being over bearing. I also recommend their sister take away - Polly Indian in Frome at the top of Catherine Hill. Both serve authentic, carefully flavoured meals which leave the palate rejoicing.

My partner & I always go here for Indian, the service is impeccable, the staff are so polite, friendly and efficient. The food is gorgeous, plenty of it, not heavy and it tastes amazing. They're great at recommending things as well if you want to try something different which is what I like to do. The facilities aren't the greatest,... More

Popped here for an impromptu Friday night treat and not disappointed - very friendly welcome, fantastic vegetarian choice of food, really tasty dishes, service not the quickest but then it's nice not to be rushed. The bill came to £40 for two of us including poppadums to start, beer, soft drinks, sides and two main courses (one meat, one veggie)... More
