What an amazing find close to our pre-cruise stay hotel. It was absolutely faultless. The food was delicious and beautifully served. Social distancing was done extremely well. Will definitely visit again when we’re next in Southampton.
Very friendly staff and manager. Food was fantastic - tasty and full of spices. Visited here a couple of years ago and had a great experience too. Definitely recommend the kebab sharer starter. Very enjoyable evening
Having tried several “Indian “ restaurants in Southampton I can honestly say this one is THE best-proper authentic PUNJABI food-not the usual fake Indian food (normally actually Bangladeshi food-a total different ballgame)
I had 2 dishes rarely available in Southampton-
Chicken on the bone and...keema(minced lamb)-both amazing
Great service, great food-strongly recommendMore
We were travelling from Bournemouth and just for staying the night we went to Southampton. Was so hungry. booked the table on the way before reaching. Also mentioned have got kids and they need the food to the soonest. As soon as I reached, we...got such a warm welcome which felt like home, they immediately provided a table and food within 10 min. Kids were finally happy. I cannot forget how good behavior the hosts showed to us. Will visit again if we go to Southampton.
Must visit !!!More
This place knocks it out of the park! (that may be a US phrase from baseball!) and is amazing. I'm here in the UK on quarantine before a research trip and have ventured into restaurant critic rating territory with this one as I can't keep...myself from ordering.I have had 3 meals in a row from Bayleaf Kitchen. Their curries are so flavorful and each taste distinct. They aren't shy with the spice level and their naan is outstanding, Simply put, this place is great and the real deal. I've made my way through several chicken dishes and their spinach and other veggie sides are addictive. They've delivered with efficiency to my hotel. Bayleaf kitchen can I take you home?More
Takeaway for Daughters Birthday. The delivery was before allotted time , lovely and hot and of a very high standard. I don’t order that often from BK ,so this review is my honest opinion of last nights takeaway
