$31 to $50
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 !

A friend of mine kept posting photos on Instagram of this place and I decided I needed to try the food. My wife and I each order a combination (appetizer, entree, bread and dessert). I was ridiculously full and it was honestly pretty amazing. Parking can be a pain because it's Five Points, but its manageable.

If you enjoy Indian food then Bay Leaf is a must try! We went for Fathers day this year & the food was delicious - the presentation earned extra points - (My mother commented on the entertainment factor) - and the servers were attentive and happy to explain the menu.

This place was amazing. I went in for lunch and the options available reminded me of big city dining. I was on business and I will definitely be back. The cocktail list is impressive also. Friendly quick service and personable. Can’t wait to try other things on the menu.

Great service and great food as usual. The only thing I would recommend is that they should space guests out a bit more. The restaurant wasn’t very saturated at the time of our seating. We’re not in the clear yet with this pandemic.

Look no further! A hit with our group! Everyone of us were delighted with our orders and felt we had experienced an exotic culinary journey. Korma, Tiki Masala, Vindaloo, Kabob, Paneer and that chutney flight appetizer! The presentation and copper serving dishes are gorgeous. Save room for a hot chai tea - creamy and spicy. So much better than from a traditional coffee shop. The chai flavors are complex, with a little bite at the end. Worth going to Bayleaf just for that!

The waitstaff guided us through the menu offerings - so many choices, so exotic. Once we finished our meal Chef Z stopped by our table. He is a delight and was so pleased we were there. They are opening two new locations. The decor is festive, great lighting .... well I highly recommend Bayleaf!
