I've always been a fan of this restaurant, and have reviewed it before. They have now added another string to their bow, by opening on Sunaday lunchtime for an all you can eat buffet. We've visited on the last two Sundays and had great meals both times. The usual starters are offered....bhajis, samosas and chicken tikka, with chutneys and poppadoms.... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening and the buffet was still being served, but we were allowed to eat from the main menu. I had the tandoori lamb chops to start and one of their specials for main (cooked to vindaloo strength). Everything was tasty as well as hot, which not all restaurants can do. The only fault was...

Had late lunch here today having heard Bayleaf now does buffet style food. Pleasantly surprised.. waitress was very attentive and the chef came out to advise on each of the dishes. We had poppadums, onion salad, mint sauce, bahjis, samosas, and a selection of curries, including lamb and chicken. Not much for vegetarians but chef kindly offered to cook me... More

I have been to this restaurant before and had a nice curry so thought we would go again, it was busy downstairs so we were seated upstairs, it was cold but after a while it started to get warm. I ordered a king prawn korma when it arrived I could barely see the prawns (small). A lot of sauce. I... More

Need to book in advance for the weekend evenings. Parking sometimes not available outside restaurant. Good customer service. Food good although not outstanding and I have had better. Usual 4 condiments with popadoms. Cokes very expensive at £2.90 a glass! Can cater for large groups as there is an upstairs dining area.

Booked the table for 14 a week in advance and were asked to prebook our meals as it was the food festival and they expected to be busy. Arrived on time, 20 minutes later one of the waiters was asked if we could have some drinks 20 minutes after they arrived they were not busy. Our food (prebooked) started arriving... More
