“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Midweek you don't have to book but would recommend you do at the weekend! Food choice is quite varied and worthy with a choice of how spicy you might want your dish! We were not rushed and the food was quite lovely

“Friday night Indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Busy restaurant, not just with takeaways, full tables, very buzzy! Double door so no cold draft from the street. Food arrived quickly, very tasty and decent portion. Waiter a bit clueless about poring wine, filled a whole bottle into three glasses, not sure if a ploy to sell you another one. Food and wine prices very fair. Would go back, but keep a sharp eye on the drinks waiter

“First time better than second...but still very nice so will be back for a 3rd and more :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

It is nice and can see why it gets great reviews- very will run and the food is very nice-simple things like the rice is very nice and not bland like in a lot of curry places.
Great selection of veggie dishes i.e. two daal dishes if one is not enough and nice selection of meat and fish dishes.
Yes this place deserves it's good reputation and feedback- still miss Kapadokya though...

“After reading the other reviews here i feel a little bit like the proverbial party pooper”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

But,

Trying to be be fair we have eaten in twice and had three delivery dinners. And two of them were perfectly adequate. It seems you can't win, if you eat in everything is delayed by the backlog of take away and delivery orders, and when waiting for take away it is because the restaurant is busy.
But is it? I have noticed as standards have declined over the last six months more and more empty tables. Having myself, together with my guests suffered a, somewhat gippier than one would expect tummy on more than one occasion have decided to vote with my feet and to take my trade elsewhere in the local area.

Dear Fat_Food_Man

I am terribly sorry to hear your unfortunate experience. That was truly not our attention. We really appreciate your feedback and hope to give us one more chance to get it right. Certainly, I do hope that you will not judge The Bay Leaf by one experience. Look-forward serving you very soon.
