Excellent Indian food and good service in a contemporary setting. We had the 'mid week' specials, starter and main courses for 9.95, which was great value, and the Thali, a selection of dishes for 1 or 2 people.

A large party of us came on a Tuesday night to make the most of the very reasonable deal The Bay Leaf offers. We enjoyed the food very much, very fresh tasting and full of flavour. However our main meal took an hour to arrive... Lots of people were here to collect takeaways as well as dine in, and the... More

We eat from here every other week if not every week, absolutely love curry! This is definitely the best curry house in Frome! Service with a smile and great tasting curry!

My partner and I stopped here for a takeaway one night after work. The restaurant looked lovely inside and was fairly busy for a Thursday night. The food was amazing and was ready in no time. It was all fresh and hot and smelt great. Service was excellent also!

Having tried most of the local curry houses and their all you can eat buffets , thought we'd try The Bay Leaf for a change. The place was very quiet but it did not detract from what was an excellent culinary experience. On offer was the normal menu plus a 5 dish Thali menu or a Midweek Dine in menu... More

We went there on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not full, but the service was extremely slow. They got our drink orders mixed up with someone else and then one drink arrived, but the others did not until we had been there at least 20 minutes. The beer was supposed to be Kingfisher but arrived in a Cobra glass... More
