There were 14 people attending a birthday celebration, the banquet was fabulous the service excellent and the happy hour drink prices were an added bonus. I love this restaurant, it is a hidden gem in Cairns, and is always busy. If you like Indonesian food this is the place to go. Advice make a reservation.

Really nice place. Attentive service. Sate combo was wonderful. Corn fritters tasty. Duck curry was very good but all the curries were delicious. The soups were yummy. The assorted grilled seafood was worth it. Good wine list.

As always food here is very good and authentic. Service is also very good and they also have a good menu for kids and vegetarians. They also have a good bar menu. Will try to visit every time I visit Cairns.

My Cairns connection have been going to Bayleaf for years so we were confident the food would be good. Well we weren't disappointed, great service, friendly staff and excellent food. We had a banquet which represented the signature dishes for Bayleaf, all were very good.

The restaurant has always been a favourite of our family for special occasions however the flavours had changed in the curries since last visit and we didn't finish them I when we had the banquet this time. There was gristle in the meat curry too. The chicken satays are amazing as well as the desserts. Anyway lovely ambience.

We had a really excellent meal at the Bayleaf, probably the best of the Australian part of my trip. The lamb with cardamom and coriander was my favourite although the seafood in yellow coconut sauce was also very good. These were accompanied by blanched vegetables in peanut sauce with jasmine rice, both of which were extremely tasty. All was beautifully... More
