What a quaint venue, slightly intrigued by the menu, so took a chance. The result pleasantly surprised by these authentic main dishes, accompanied by a basic salad which was quite refreshing and crisp. But what won me over was the service style all staff members were attentive with there unique personality, no fake smiles and when in doubt they'd gladly... More

We went before going to the cinema near by. They managed to squeeze us in without us having a booking, and we're very attentive throughout our meal. The food was wonderful tasting and spicy but flavoursome. The Indian ice cream was lovely too 😊 Will be returning in the near future.

We had a table of four last night and the restaurant extremely busy on a Saturday evening did not deter the team at kayal to deliver good food and great service. Tom Joseph the waiter on our table was fantastic, and very friendly. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant as have been a few times and it's always very good. Keep it... More

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
