Bay Leaf Modern Indian Cuisine & Bar, formerly Bay Leaf Authentic Indian Cuisine, is an Indian restaurant at Five Points Lane (1024 20th Street South) in Five Points South.

Kiran Chavan and partners opened the first Bay Leaf restaurant in 2014 at The Terrace at Greystone on U.S. Highway 280 in Greystone. The second location was opened in 2019.

In 2020, during a shutdown for the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, Chavan sold controlling interest to the "Spice Library Group", a group of local investors including executive chef Pritam Zarapkar. Chavan remained as general manager. The group updated and modernized the menu, including quick lunch options and a full-service cocktail bar.

The restaurant closed its Greystone location in 2023.
