One of the best and authentic bengali food i ever had outside my lovely Kolkata. Most of the rare food items are available here. Please note we Bengalis are non vegetarian. Non vegetarian dishes are available.

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... More

The bayleaf is located in Gopalapuram and the restaurant is mainly know for it's Bengali food. They offer North Indian and Bengali cuisine.

Any fan of Kati Rolls must visit Bay Leaf at least once a month (or once a week, if you're one of my friends!). They consistently deliver incredibly tasty food. I'd recommend the chicken egg roll or the lasooni chicken roll, my vegetarian friends rave about the paneer kati roll as well.

Thanx for bengali food at Chennai. Getting authenticate Bengali dish that to be at Chennai was extremely pleasing. You need to pay high for getting some unexpected at odd locations--same holds for this joint too. A Cafe type ambience but provides quality bong food-still I remember the aloo posto.
