"I myself was not a fan of Indian cuisine until a few friends of mine brought me here; now I love it!"
"BTW the owner walks around and greets guests and helps out on the floor."
"The biryani is absolutely delicious and goes well with the green mint/cilantro chutney."
"Rich chunks of lamb swim in a rich, brown gravy flavored with various Indian chilies. This dish is the hottest on the menu and the heat slowly creeps up on you before taking control. However, the heat enhances the flavor and experience of eating hot food done right. Pair it with one of their fresh yogurt drinks to keep the heat in check".
Chicken Tika Masala - Bay Leaf
"Not many dishes have impressed me like the chicken tika masala at Bay Leaf. The chicken is rubbed with yogurt and other Indian spices and cooked inside a tandoor oven. The chicken is then cut into chunks and placed into a rich masala sauce. The tika masala sauce is made with curry, tomatoes, and coconut milk. Served with their aromatic rice and fresh na'an bread makes for a perfect meal. If you haven't, please try this dish!"
"Following the waiter's appetizer suggestions, we sampled the lamb sooley ($8.75), which is grilled lamb marinated in lemon and garlic and served on a skewer, and mix bhajia ($6.50), crisp fritters made of cauliflower, potato, paneer cheese, spinach and onion. Both were pleasantly spiced, and we further accented them with the tart mint and sweet tamarind dipping sauces that came with the complimentary crisp bread"
"Our favorite was the chicken malai kabob ($11.95), a large chicken breast that is marinated in garlic, ginger, coriander, malai cream and yogurt, split open and charcoal grilled in a tandoor oven. This is the most amazingly moist white chicken meat we've ever been served, and accompanying onions and thinly sliced peppers and other seasonings are both visually pleasing and tasty"

"His extensive menu runs laps around the Asian sub-continent, cooking up dozens of kebabs, curry, tandoori, lamb, seafood, salad, crepe, rice and vegetarian dishes from all corners of India. All are as exotic as their names promise".
"The chefs at Bay Leaf know their spices well. Each and every dish had a distinctive taste and unique preparation, a difficult feat to achieve for Indian restaurants"
I just wanted to let you know that we had a really great time last night and plan to visit your restaurant again.
