What lovely food - we visited on a busy Saturday night, the place was packed out but the service was spot on and the staff were lovely. The fish curry was yummy, will definitely be back to try more of their delicious food 😀

I'd read good reviews so when we were looking for somewhere different we tried here. A busy Saturday night but they fitted us in without a booking. Service was SO prompt, food arrived before drinks. Food was absolutely delicious, service was fantastic throughout and I wouldn't hesitate to come back. The menu was so varied that I think I could... More

For truly authentic Indian cuisine, I thoroughly recommend Kayal. After visiting India earlier this year, it has been my quest to find a restaurant that has a menu that tastes truly Indian. I have found it.

If you're looking for a standard masala or korma don't go here. But if you want fresh light curries which taste divine then this gem of a place delivers on all fronts. Amazing veggie options. I can't comment on the meat options but have been informed they are also amazing. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - if... More

My wife and I ate at Kayal during a stopover in Nottingham. We had a Sadya each, plus soft drinks. The Sadya is a three course meal, starting with soup, then multiple little bowls of curries, side dishes, bread and rice, followed by a dessert. We ordered one vegetarian Sadya and one non-vegetarian Sadya, and then shared them between the... More

Absolutely amazing service and food. Very accommodating for vegans, Shija went out of her way to make sure everything was suitable! She recommended an amazing rice and bread to go with my aubergine curry. Service was extremely quick, especially for a group of 20 people. Will absolutely be recommending and returning!
