We went here at my son's recommendation; he goes to University nearby and we were visiting. It also happened to be my wife's birthday. We all love Indian food; we cook it at home frequently and really enjoy trying new Indian restaurants. Kayla did not disappoint; in fact it offered some of the most flavorful appetizers and entrees that I... More

We went to Kayal as a family of six (age range from 8 years to 73 years!) for a birthday celebration. We were looking forward to sampling Kayal's masala dosa and we weren't disappointed! The curries were really tasty and made a change from the usual Bangladeshi curry houses we usually go to. Our children did find the food a... More

I came here for dinner with a friend and had a great experience. The decor is informal and the atmosphere buzzes with the conversation from the tables. It's a busy place but the service is quick and efficient. But, it's all about the food. Fresh spices and authentic flavours of that great Indian state, Kerala. I loved it! Dosa was... More

Keralan curry rather than your normal british curry house. Great food though particularly the aubergine curry

Been to Kayal many times and each time we try to have something different but it's so hard not to have their Fish Curry; it's just so amazingly good! Nice variety of starters and main dishes to choose from and warm, relaxed ambience. Plus Kingfisher on draft. Winner! Highly recommend a visit!

Having visited in evenings a few times, this was a first for lunch. The business lunch was an interesting range of dishes, served quickly and excellent value. The dishes are South Indian - not Birmingham Indian - a refreshing taste of authenticity.

What a great restaurant, with fantastic service and food. I liked it so much, I have gone twice this week, and had the same dish, fish curry both times. I plan on going back again next week, and trying something new! The flavour is fantastic, and if I could, I would take a glass of the curry sauce home to... More

I visited with my partner and a friend for an evening meal. It's very cramped inside but we were given a nice table by the window. I would imagine their cuisine is presented as a more authentic Indian experience than the standard U.K. balti or tikka masala however it has a fairly limited menu. Starters were tasty but I had...

Thank you for your feedback. We take every feedback as a learning experience and this is no different. We are unable to understand your expectations. Its amazing that sitting by the window you understood the whole layout.

This is the restaurant I visit most often in Leamington. The food is always amazing I've never had a dish which wasn't fantastic, the service is always cheerful, and it's incredibly good value. Whenever family visit me they won't go anywhere else. It has a particularly good vegetarian selection.
