Some friends and I were visiting Leicester for the weekend, and were interested to find out which restaurants would be worth visiting. We came across Kayal's and booked a table on the day, but the only available table was at 9pm. We arrived a little bit earlier, and was greeted pleasantly. We waited a little bit for a table to...

We went here after the football match at the King Power Station. The staff were friendly and helpful (although a bit hard to understand!) We had a selection of pappadum style starters to share. I then had a filleted seabass filled with tiny prawns and spices - to say it was delicious is an understatement - I have never tasted... More

We had the vegetarian paneer in this restaurant and it was amazing. My partner had a dosa and loved it. Was light and fragrant. The staff were incredibly friendly and service came with a smile. Food was not too heavy and it's so close to pubs and clubs. Definitely visit again.

Friday night family meal for eight people - 7 mixed-generation adults and a 9-yr-old. Bit of a surprise to most of us, none of the usual bhuna/ tikka masala/ jalfrezi options. Instead a bewildering array of interesting sounding dishes. Our waitress, Eva, was very helpful and great with spot-on suggestions. I had a nadan kozhi curry, with thegna choru (chicken... More

Second time here and wow, I luv it. Thank you to Nikhil who looked after us for the evening. I advise booking at weekends as I reckon around 30 or so people where turned away as the place was full and yet great service and delightful food. So many great dishes we don't get in our local place Look forward... More
