“Utterly shameful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Went as a party of five for a birthday dinner. Decided to give the Bayleaf another chance after a terrible take out with canned/frozen vegetable curry last time and revolting pakora.
The buffet was pitiful - a Veg Korma that had clearly been re-heated from lunch with SWEETCORN AND CANNED/FROZEN veg - again. No other veggie dishes, foul meat sludge passing as curry and meatballs...seriously?

Complaints fell on deaf and ignorant ears - I refused to order in the end after two women and another guy claimed they had no idea what I meant by 'authentic vegetarian food'. Was offered a paneer curry in the butter chicken sauce - with no chicken in it, as they planned to pick out the oddly cubed processed chicken. Explained I did not want paneer - yet after 30 minutes waiting for a vegetarian curry they came out again and offered me paneer and spinach on the house, but I would have to pay for pilau rice! My party had all finished a very sub-standard re-heated buffet, so we left. Never again.

Utterly shameful service and a disgrace to Indian cuisine. The Shandhar Hut will keep my business.

“yech”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Had the all-you-can-eat buffet...pakoras were rock hard; very few veggie dishes; the veg korma was in a watery tasteless sauce - samosas had no flavour - rice was sticky

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

I have been to this restaurant at least a half dozen times (with mixed reviews but generaly acceptable quality for the price) but after my last visit I will never be back.

First off it was incredibly rude service, Food was disgusting and then to top it off their was a hair in my food. When I informed the waiter he looked around at the hair of the three people at our table and tried to blame it on us even though it was a long hair and all three people at the table had short hair. No Apology was given.

I will never be back and neither will the people that I visited with.

“WONDERFULL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

We normally do not read or post comment,but a friend brought this to our attention.COMMENT POSTED NOV 13,2011. OVERALL EXPERIENCE....LUKEWARM..We think the food,ambiance ,lighting and service is wonderful. It was our 3rd time there. We were celebrating a special occasion.The only "Strange Thing" was the RUDE customers sitting next to us complaining about everything.Wanted the lights brighter and this & that, Do not ruin our meal.Next time PLEASE go to MacDonald s or better yet STAY HOME.
