“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Went to this restaurant the other Sunday for their northern Indian buffet and was not disappointed. Now don't let the location put you off the food is well worth the visit. Cooked extremely well and huge loads of flavour .

“very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

what has happened to the Bayleaf ? We went there on Saturday and the food was dreadful. We ordered a variety of dishes - beef, lamp, chicken, eggplant, dahl and they all came cooked in the same heavy brown gravy. it was almost impossible to tell one dish from another - even the eggplant. The beef was meant to be slow cooked but just was just old and tired.
So the Bayleaf is off the list for me.

“Sunday buffet now a ritual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

After stumbling across this restaurant almost 2 years ago my wife and I (and sometimes close friends too) have fallen into a habit of coming here every Sunday for the buffet dinner. The food is always different and have always been impressed by the taste and how much I enjoy the whole experience. This restaurant is exactly what you need when you would like to have a casual, non-pretentious experience that is more than affordable. The staff are always so eager to please and you get a sense that they are proud of the food and that they want you to enjoy the whole experience.

It is very easy to miss this restaurant, it is in the back of a shopping center and it looks very casual. Don't be deceived, it's a must try!

“Great value, service and food quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I booked here for my husband's birthday and we had the best time. We were seated in the back room (which is good atmosphere away from shopping centre area) and they looked after us so well with outstanding service and a special treat and even a birthday card from the owner! I do not particularly go for Indian food normally, but this was close to the best I have eaten out. Everything was freshly made - you could tell they use quality ingredients. It was also very well priced and corkage only $2pp. We would definitely return after a great dining experience at Bayleaf.
