We have a celiac level gluten free preference. Bay Leaf had many gluten free options that are truly gluten free (and NOT gluten friendly while claiming to be gluten free). The staff were very knowledgeable and took great care. The restaurant also had other allergy friendly options such as a peanut free and dairy free items. So glad to see to see an Indian restaurant that takes allergy preferences very seriously.

This restaurant was AMAZING! The butter chicken was…well, like butter! The tamarind margarita was delicious and spicy. Some of the best Indian cuisine I’ve had this side of London! Many gluten-free options, the people are also very kind. This restaurant is lovely:)

We had a great dinner experience with our service and food. I ordered the Chicken Biryani - mild and unfortunately my mouth was on fire after the first bite. The manager Sid was super nice and helpful and suggested the appetizer of Chicken Malakai Kebab - grilled chicken in an Indian clay oven and I also asked for a side of saffron rice. My husband ordered Lamb Bhutanese - mild ( bearable for him) with a side of butter naan bread and loved it. My dish was really good and simple which I prefer. The decor was also really pretty and enjoyed the Buddha Bar playlist. We would definitely go back. Note: I originally wanted to order the Chicken Tandorri but it only came with Naan bread which was incorrectly labeled as gluten free and they acknowledge that was an error. I didn’t think at that time to order a side of rice.

Ordered online from their menu which had gluten free indicated clearly under several items (which I assumed was correct). Left a phone number to call in case there was an issue with my order. Was called at the time that I was supposed to pick up the food (I was about to walk in) and told that even though the menu indicated the item I ordered was gluten free, it had flour in it. Had to cancel my order and find another restaurant to order from. Very disappointed in the lack of clarity on the menu regarding gluten free items.

They have the GF items marked and are able to answer any questions about the menu. Owners are incredibly kind and welcoming. Our favorite Indian place in all of Birmingham!
