Thank you for your prompt delivery. Thank you for delicious Indian food. We ordered a chicken balti, butter chicken, lamb madras & vegetable massalla with rice, sides & peshwari naan. It was the best

Disappointing they wouldn’t deliver the naan that they had left off my order, had timed the collection between nursing my newborn so having to go back out wasn’t an option. Wish I hadn’t bothered tipping or trying a new Indian. Poppadoms were stale and got...thrown out, rest of food was niceMore

We have two choices when it comes to curry... Bay Leaf and Rushi. Arrives on time and they do a great dansak

I have a delivery from this restaurant at least twice a month. Have been using them at this and their previous location for the best part of 10 years, I have only the highest praise for the food, reliability and friendliness of service. Enjoy.

Another zingy fresh curry from Bayleaf this evening. They don't scrimp on the spices, good portions and wholesome rich sauces, not watery or over-oily like a lot of others. Sag Gosht is consistently tender and never fatty, with loads of flavour. Recommended by a curry...lover of over 40 years although I don't have them super-hot like I used too!!More

Decided to change from our previous takeaway and were pleasantly surprised by first couple of meals. Unfortunately the last 2 occasions the chicken has been horrible as though it has been injected with water so we are now looking elsewhere again.

Nice food. Very reasonable. Curry is never too spicy. Can be quite slow. Polite Staff. Would recommend.

The food from this restaurant is lovely. It's a bit more pricey than other takeaways in the area but you get what you pay for.
