Kayal is one of our regular lunch destinations when in town for events at the Ice Arena. We enjoy the atmosphere and the food is just a little different from run of the mill Indian restaurants. We will usually opt for one of the dosa's which are an adventure on their own, and wheat gluten free because they are made... More

An impromptu stop in mid week. Food was delicious and different to many other asian/indian restaurants around. Would visit more often but at the pricier end which I guess reflects the quality.

An interesting menu but the food served certainly did not live up to description and promise. We found the food dull and bland, and in general it lacked freshness, depth and the ability of the chef to vary 'heat'. The service was friendly but slow to get our starter so we'd have appreciated a few complimentary popadoms and pickles/chutneys whilst... More

Mum and dad are off to Kerela soon so Kayal was prime choice for his birthday celebration. From booking the table to the meal itself and then saying goodbye the service was amazing. It felt family run and we were made to feel very welcome. The food was beautiful, following the advise of the the staff we ordered stunning dishes... More

Easily one of the best Indians I've ever been too. I love south Indian food, though I'm not a fan of fish which is Kayal's speciality. Food was excellent as ever and service was fast and friendly. Along with Desi Downtown this is my favourite place to eat in town.

I came here with a big group for dinner and the service was not good. It took us FOREVER to have our orders taken and then a really long time to get our food. I'm sure it would be better for one or two people, but for a group reservation I would not recommend this place. We called in advance... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant. Great to find somewhere that offers a different take on the classic curry menu and the vegetarian specialities were appreciated too. Decor isn't that good but, since the place is busy and has a great atmosphere, that doesn't really matter. Would definitely recommend.

They serve Indian dishes here that are a little different to other curry restaurants which is a nice change. A little over priced hence a 4 rating. Definitely worth a try.
