    Not at all busy. Food average in that meat dishes contained very little meat. At end waited 25 minutes to be offered a dessert or a drink or the bill. In the end got up, paid and left. No hot towels, mints or even a complimentary farewell drink offered to others. The inattentiveness was because the waiters were all fawning over a couple in the corner who may have been the bosses or family members. Whoever they were they were hosted better than us. A disappointing evening.

    The food here is great. We let the waiter recommend dishes and they were delicious. Particularly the lamb curry they recommended. The service at times was really slow but overall this is a great place to eat.

    We had a Lovely Curry on New Year's Eve at the Bayleaf Kitchen with our Friends. Always Quality Food and Excellent Service. Lovely welcoming relaxing restaurant.They are always very busy and you will need to book a table in advance. A truly special dinning experience. We highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

    Visited on a sat eve with my son and his partner. It was quiet when we arrived but very soon filled up. Waiters were pleasant and very helpful with info on food allergies. Food arrived promptly and looked amazing , it tasted as delicious as it looked. The portions were perfect not too small or large. I had a biryani , it was the best i have ever had. Definately returning.

    Nice food, very good waiter service - polite & courteous. Visited 7.30pm on a Friday evening. Placed right at the back of restaurant with quite a few large parties of very loud, noisy men - could hardly hear my group’s chat, which for me really spoilt the whole evening. Sorry to say - I’m not really sure if I’d revisit.

    We've visited before and had excellent food. Last night's visit for a birthday was no exception. However, the mushroom bhaji we ordered came as an onion bhaji which was changed within seconds (suggests microwave heating) but still tasted very good. We ordered chicken chatinada which ended up being butter chicken tikka masala. We didn't know what chatinada was supposed to look like so didn't question it but thought it was quite mild given the description on the menu. It was, however, very tasty. We were persuaded to opt for the more expensive starter for sharing which was also delicious. Our lamb dish was delightful with the right amount of heat. I would say to their credit that they appear to stay away from the standard same curry sauce with a few different colours added and I would definitely return. Maybe we didn't make ourselves very clear but we didn't get what we'd ordered. I've no doubt the chicken would have been changed had we realised. Lack of communication perhaps? Don't let that put you off, the food is very good and so is the service. I'd recommend booking at the weekend, it's a small place but we'll deserving of the reviews.

    Came here for my father In Laws 70th birthday. We had the set menu which was flavourful and plenty of it to go round 11 of us. Was no issue when we asked for top ups of a couple of things. The staff are all so friendly and attentive. Already planning a return visit.

    This is a gem of a restaurant. Food fresh and delicious. Service efficient and friendly. My husband was particularly impressed with their chapattis. Prices reasonable also. We will be back.

    Popped in here after some late night Christmas shopping and found it really friendly and food really good. Only downside was I was sat right next to the front door but will definitely go again.

    The staff were very welcoming and found us a table in a quiet area. The food was the best Indian cuisine we've had since we visited India. The staff didn't mind us spreading our meal out over a longer period so that we could could enjoy it.

    Courtesy... Hospitality.... Authenticity... These are the words that spring to mind when dining at the Bay Leaf kitchen. It's plain to see that Chef Mukesh Sharma and the team have ONE single aim - to deliver us an authentic Indian dining experience with the utmost service. I personally opted for the chicken tikka korma and boy did it deliver, incredibly fragrant yet creamy and delicate. I could see from the happy faces round the table that the other patrons were also lapping it up. Thanks again to all the staff who made this such a great night out. Coriander lounge need to watch out for Mukesh, delivering some serious competition.

    I visited last night with my group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed the meal from start to finish - and I’m not just talking about the food! They have delicious vegan options which was really great to see and the party poppers on the table are a nice festive touch, can really see that they look out for all patrons here. Special shout out to Chef Mukesh, who tended to all our needs, he has an incredible level of hospitality and you can see that his single aim was to make sure we all had a good night, which we did. Bayleaf Kitchen 10/10 would recommend for that authentic Indian experience!

    Have been going to this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed! Staff are amazing and I always feel welcome! The food tastes fresh and home made! My favourite dish is Palak paneer (cottage cheese and spinach) perfect for someone that's not too keen on spicy food but wants a little kick. Best Indian in Southampton if not Hampshire!! I can only recommend it!

    I visited last saturday with my friends, good ambience, the food was so mild .kids enjoyed the food. But the owner was bit rushing us to leave the table, felt bit hurry and also nonveg platter starter had vegetarian stuff added init. We ordered chicken chettinad and butter chicken which looked and tasted same ,no blend of spices.

    I went to this restaurant last week and I feel it’s the best Indian restaurant in Southampton for food and service. The mixed Kebab starter was superb and the main was lovely.

    I've never had a curry so good. I ordered the chicken tikka masala with special fried rice. It was simply amazing. The tenderness of the chicken set this place apart from other curry houses. The mint sauce on the pickle tray which came with the poppadoms was the best I've ever had - very tasty with a thicker, creamier consistency. My dining companions said the peshwari naan was the best they've ever had. I will definitely come back here.
