The Bay Leaf has been a consistent treat in downtown Allentown. The restaurant is unassuming and pleasantly so, belying the great cuisine offered at this comfortable dinning haven. The service is kind and efficient. The menu is well-balanced and enticing. The food is prepared with passion, presented with tasteful elegance and never fails to satisfy. Try it, you'll like it!

Always excellent food freshly prepared. Good service but can be slow if crowded. Decor could be updated .

One of our favorites! Parking usually easy on Hamilton St near by. Not sure about when the new hockey rink is open, however. Reliably good Thai food.

The Bay Leaf has been open for many years and owned by the same family.The food quality is excellent as well as the service.It is located in downtown Allentown but does have a well lit parking lot in the back of the resraurant with a rear entrance.
I've been eating there for many tears and am never disappointed.Ironically many locals aren't even aware of it.
