One is never that far away from a great Indian restaurants in the UK, and from the top of the country in Scotland to the very bottom coast in Southampton, the standard is broadly superb. Is it world class though? Well, we’re not sure about every restaurant, but if you’re in Southampton and want a world-record Indian meal, then you need to head to the High Street and Bayleaf Kitchen. Their chef, Mukesh Sharma, is responsible for the world’s largest naan bread, cooked for charity back in 2014, and the rest of his fare is similarly spectacular. The menu at Bayleaf Kitchen is filled with Indian classics, from tandoor-fresh kebabs to begin, fried favourites such as samosas, aloo tikki and papdi chaat and vegetarian specialities that are sure to excite your whole party. Throw in a huge repertoire of curries, biryanis and house signatures – the dhaba gosht, with lamb on the bone cooked in a sealed pot, is particularly good – and you’re onto a world record winner at Bayleaf Kitchen.

Another fantastic meal. Full of flavours . Staff are so attentive and friendly. All tho they were really busy we didn't wait long for our meal. Can't wait for our next visit 🤗
We came for the first time last night Friday 27th April . The food was really good , the only down thing was that the table wasn’t ready at 8pm as the people before were not finished in time
Bay Leaf Kitchen has the best curry in Southampton. The food was great, the atmosphere was lovely and the staff are so helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
The food was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive. I don't eat out much as we eat pretty well at home, so when I do head out I hope to enjoy it and eat something we'd never have at home. This was a first visit and we'll definitely be going back!
Our first time at the Bayleaf Kitchen. Made an online booking and found the restaurant was busy (it was Valentines night) we were greeted and seated quickly but given the time to order, eat and enjoy. The place was spotless and the service courteous, the meals were of high quality, good value and very tasty - one of the best we have had in fact. (and we've tried a few!) We were never rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our meal - will, without a doubt, be back again.
Our first time at the Bayleaf Kitchen and was very pleased with our evening there. The staff were absolutely first class from start to finish and the food , truly exceptional. Was the best Indian restaurant we have eaten in and definitely the best food too. Will return in the near future. Brilliant!!!
This is a great restaurant with very friendly staff, but not obtrusive. We were made to feel very welcome and there was a good atmosphere. The decor was to a very high standard and the table settings were first class. The food was excellent, we haven't had a curry of this standard for quite some time. The portions were generous and we think the "heat scale" used was probably about right. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant .
This was our first visit to Bayleaf Kitchen and certainly won’t be our last. The food was excellent, I would particularly recommend the Fish Amritsari starter. Very good service from attentive staff made for an enjoyable evening.
Superb food and attentive friendly staff. I can see what the place is so popular! We went as a couple and we’re seated within three minutes of arriving. We would both definitely visit there again and certainly recommend to anyone wanting beautifully cooked and presented fine Indian food. A special mention to philip our waiter and the incredible Indian chef!! Thanks again!
Nice restaurant, great attentive staff and good food. Very complex flavours and large portions give this restaurant the edge The flavours may not always be what you're used to but, if your new to this region of curry cooking, its best to take advice from the staff , who will guide you through the extensive menu. Very good value for money.
