My wife and I are big on Indian cuisine and have checked quite a few restaurants in South East of England with only 3 really standing out. This restaurant is one of them when it comes to the food quality. Great flavours (love the fresh coriander with spicy dishes) - we really enjoyed the quality of... read more

Just the best curry I've ever tasted. Not been dissapointed in the two years I've been using it. Quality food polite staff plenty of room to sit whilst waiting for takeaway. Quick service.

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

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
