In the pretty market town of Heanor, a few miles to the northeast of Derby, there’s an Indian restaurant whose menu is simply begging to be thoroughly plumbed. It’s called Bay Leaf, and its town centre location up on Market Street is often packed out with locals and Derbyshire curry house connoisseurs looking to feed their body and mind with South Asian spice. The focus here is on contemporary Indian cuisine, with spices ground fresh on site and no artificial ingredients making their way into the food. The menu is incredibly comprehensive, with Bay Leaf’s exclusive dishes, seafood specials and fusion dishes particularly deserving of attention. Besides traditional Indian and Bangladeshi dishes, Bay Leaf’s expert chefs are also adept at preparing Nepalese and Afghan dishes for some real northern soul.
Bay leaf always delivers this good food and service even on busy New Year’s Eve. Was delicious and a pleasure to celebrate with the team.
Very good service, fast and friendly. Very reasonable prices. Plus the quantity of food is definitely sufficient. I would happily return and greatly recommend!
As always great food and service, in good surroundings. I have dined here on several occasions. The food has always been very good. Will be back soon.
