I have been here a few times now and I think Bay Leaf Restaurant is the best Indian Food I’ve had in years. Nice staff too !

Jacob Milam

The staff is extremely friendly and the food is phenomenal. There's nothing else like it around.


Good news! The buffett is opening next week. In the interim, their lunch menu is filled with affordable dishes between $10-12. The menu was redesigned to focus on the different curries or sauces for which you pick the protein. Their is also an Tandoori option. The food was filled with flavors and as always the Naan is made fresh.The service is always hospitable and their teamwork in service is impeccable.

It was great to see this place survived the covid-19 emergency. These days the lunch buffet is no longer offered. Instead there is a limited menu to choose from. The food is quite good, and the servers are helpful and friendly. If you like Indian food, or just want to try it for the first time, I'd highly recommend the Bay Leaf.

It's a nice place to have Indian fission food..the food was tasty. Ambiance and service was great!Since it's a fission place, you don't get spicy food if you are looking for it...but it's flavorful and nice.Had tried Pan based's amazing!!

My family visited for the first time and loved it! We are Indian Cuisine fanatics and their food was flavorful and delicious. We also enjoyed the service from our very nice and quite amusing server, Jared. This will become part of our regular dine out rotation!

Love Bay Leaf! The best Authentic Indian Cuisine. I've tried a few places in Birmingham and always end up back at this one!

Fresh, delicious, and portions so large half our party couldn’t finish them. Wonderful experience

This is one of the best Indian places in the area. The butter chicken is fantastic; especially when you get it hot. My kids love the place too which is probably the best testament of the quality. They aren't wild about the chocolate dosa but everything else is fantastic.

Ordered my food online. The food was ready a little before the projected time. The food was hot and delicious. Will definitely be ordering from here again!!!!


This is my favorite Indian restaurant! I try to go by as often as I can and the hour long drive from my house is so worth it!!! The staff is so polite and nice. The food is top notch and authentic and the ambiance of the restaurant is very inviting. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would.

Excellent food and everyone in our party was pleased with our meal. The menu descriptions were accurate and the food was exceptionally good. This review is based on a large take-out order.

Easy and quick online ordering and pickup. Ordered the DHABA CHICKEN CURRY and Spinach salad. Both were tasty, curry could be a little more spicy (hot)


After a mad desire for Indian food after not having any since the pandemic, I decided to go to Bay Leaf. The waiter was new and kept running back to the kitchen to find out answers to our questions. This was OK since he had to learn. They did not bring us any Indian crackers (poppadum) and sauce like they used too. The naan was room temperature instead of hot and the food was "so-so". Needless to say, this dinner did not satisfy my cravings.


Excellent service and food as always. Love the consistencey.
