Picked up this place from TripAdvisor based on choice and rating.

The layout, the food and recommendations by the staff was good. Need to definitely try mustard based fish dishes.

Parking is an issue though.

Bayleaf has been around for ever so long and doesn't disappoint every time we visit. It's a homely, cozy place with a soft, laid-back ambience. Their starters, like our methi machli tikkas, are really good but I can't understand why every restaurant in Chennai insists on serving Basa fish, especially Bayleaf, where we are expecting Bhetki. Maybe we should have specified our requirement. Come on guys, Basa in a Bengali eating joint!!

Anyway, even the simple aloo mutter was very well prepared and tasty. Bayleaf is best known for its Kathi rolls, perhaps the best in Chennai and they have wisely added a take-away kathi roll counter at the entrance.

Succulent mutton is a rarity in Chennai and the mutton was really tough in our dish. Whenever we have mutton in Hyderabad, it just melts in the mouth. Wonder why.

A good place to keep going to; choose carefully and you will not be disappointed. And, don't orderr Basa.

Found this Bengali restaurant. However, I did not try the Bengali food. They try their best to incorporate the Bengali culture by serving first jhal moore.

1:- Get the glimpse of West Bengal
2:- Neat & Clean
3:- Authentic decoration
4:- Serve Bengali & North Indian food

Cons
1:- No proper washroom
2:- Wait time for food is more
3;- Waiters are not intractive

The bayleaf is located in Gopalapuram and the restaurant is mainly know for it's Bengali food. They offer North Indian and Bengali cuisine. It is not a very large place and a bit confined, with decent ambiance.

We ordered a few of the usuals - a mixed non-veg platter, some indian breads, mutton gravy, etc., and I have to say that the food was okay, nothing extraordinary. But yes, the taste definitely reminds of north indian flavors. The kati rolls, for which this restaurant is well known, is a must try.

The owner and the staff were courteous and this place is recommended for atleast one visit.
