The long, narrow dining room at this Indian restaurant is plainly lined with wooden tables on tiled floor, with a few tacky paintings decorating the wall. However, Bayleaf’s subdued interior contrasts with the liberal use of spices and a refreshingly authentic menu. The usual chicken tikka masala and vegetable curry staples are well executed here, but you’ll also find baigan bharta, a Punjabi eggplant dish, as well as saslan chicken, which is marinated in spiced yogurt for 24 hours. The fried appetizers are tasty and naan breads are a fluffy delight. An extensive seafood menu boasts shrimp sag, shrimp vindaloo, and crab curry. And be aware: the delicious smoothie-like drinks known as lassis are served here by the pint.
