We went here for my daughter's birthday. Good food and service and not over priced. Helpful staff and a lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

Sadly this isn't going to be a positive review on any level. Much as I could try to gloss it over, that would only be a disservice towards the authenticity of Trip Advisor reviews and give said restaurant a rose tinted perception of it's standards. Whilst a mid-week late-ish (9PM) curry is never going to be one doused in atmosphere,... More

We normally don't enjoy curries but decided we would try the bay leaf after having bad experiences else where. We have had several take aways and enjoy everyone and no complaints. Portion size is just right and the tastes are great! We have also eaten in once when it was very quiet. We enjoyed the buffet at its great price.... More

I've been coming here now for a good couple of years and it has always delivered great quality food. Always have the dine in deal which is 9.95 for starter main and rice/naan bread. Good value for money. The staff are all very friendly and attentive. However, I do think the starter (onion bhajee) is way too big, would call... More

In September we paid our 3rd visit to this top class restaurant when we visit friends in Frome. One of the highlights of our visit. The whole restaurant is spotlessly clean, the staff second to none & the food - well - words cannot describe highly enough. I took the name of the waiter who looked after our table so... More

We went for the £9.90 special on the 28th Oct and were not disappointed, the quality of the food was excellent and a couple pints of Kingfisher to wash it down. We'll be back very soon.

Have been having chicken vindaloo mushroom rice & chapatti every Wednesday for over a year as a take away never been disappointed. My Son has travelled the world even he agrees it is wonderful. Good quality food friendly service, clean just a little bare in comparison with most Indian restaurants. Well worth a visit.
