Contemporary Indian
With an ingredient-driven focus, global accents and nuances, the menu is a commitment to simplicity and purity of flavor, a philosophy our new ownership firmly believes in. The menu is an expression of the finest available meats and vegetables, nearly all of which we procure fresh. Drawing inspiration from each corner of the Indian subcontinent, from northern plains to southern coast, we offer a diverse and dynamic experience for our guests.

In addition to traditional Indian favorites such as tikka masalas and biriyanis, Bay Leaf Modern Cuisine & Bar offers modern tantalizing twist on Indian delicacies. Unique additions to the menu such as a perfectly grilled sumptuous desi burger, succulent tangy kababs, completely re-imagined and modernized appetizer selection, complete with signature dishes such as raspberry paneer tikka and tamarind glazed short ribs will leave you craving for more !

This restaurant deserves it’s 5 stars!! They have a knowledgeable wait staff who can help you make a spot on decision when considering your palate. Our party varied from my adult son who believes the spicier the better to my daughter who thinks mints are spicy, so it is really a testament to their variety that both diners were able to enjoy their food. I had the Vegan stuffed eggplant which was delicious. My husband had the buttered chicken and he ate his entire serving. For a party of six, everyone enjoyed their selections which is rare for us. Usually someone gets something they don’t like. Not here! If you love Indian or you are just trying new types of foods I highly recommend Bay Leaf!! You must try the Garlic Naan and the BOMBAY ONION FRITTERS! Delish!! Sorry I didn’t take any photos we ate it too quickly to remember but the presentation is over the top as well.

Excellent food that is comparable to New York Indian restaurants. The atmosphere is the perfect combination of ethnic and modern. I highly recommend the saag and garlic nan. It’s a pleasure to dine here.

As we entered we were greeted by the server/host and were seated within five minutes. Yes hey have one of the best Covid precautions that exist in Birmingham.

The signature cocktails are so unique and one of their kind. I have travelled all over the world and these kind of innovative drinks are hard to find any where in the finest of modern Indian restaurants. Kudos to the new owners for this.

The ambience and food complement each other. The food plating is as good as the pictures, and the taste is to die for.

This is by far the best Indian food I have eaten in the US. And that’s not an exaggeration. Each flavor of each dish stands out, is novel and remains with you even after you have left. I was happy to see a small but good wine collection. Ordered by the bottle and we were not disappointed with the choice and pairing.

The appetizer tamarind beef short ribs and tangra chicken chilli were so good, that I ordered take out the next day. Main course tandoori chicken, the chicken malai kabab, and lamb korma were the best I’ve eaten, ever.

Last but not the least you got to try the kulfi falooda dessert which will make you crave for more. So creamy and flavorful with the rose syrup.

It is such a blessing for B’ham to have this kind of a world class restaurant ! I might be back every week to try the rest of the menu.

This is the newest and hottest food destination in Birmingham. The taste of dishes, the service, the drinks, the ambience, music - all were world class.

The new chef is an artist which shows in the plating and flavors. I have not had such good modern Indian cuisine in southern US. The pan old fashioned was out of the world, so were the other signature cocktails.

It was very difficult to pick a favorite dish, but tandoori chicken, tamarind glazed beef short ribs, Karari bhindi, lamb laal maas, were all out of the world. Tandoori shrimps were as good as it can get ! Vodka spiced gol gappas were innovative and tasty. Even the traditional curries were better than any other restaurant I’ve eaten at. Valet parking at 5 points made our lives very easy !

Clearly the new hottest food destination in town !

One of the best global Indian cuisines I have tasted anywhere in the US in an upscale modern environment. Not just food but the presentation was also amazing! Do not miss their signature cocktail made with "pan" leaves!
