If you love Indian food, but are a bit sick of the same old same, visit this place. The lunch was amazing! So many different flavours :-)

As a South Indian restaurant this place boasts a different menu, with flavours that we certainly had not experienced elsewhere. Knowing that we were new to South Indian cuisine the waiter was very helpful in guiding out choices and made some great recommendations.

Authentic south Indian cuisine. The best Indian food I have had in Uk, so far. Especially loved the sea food!

It's a place where you can bring your parents or friends from apart from Leicester to show them Indian food of Leicester. Great food and good service.

First went here a couple of years ago and returned with a very well travelled friend who reckons this is amongst the best Indian food he has ever tasted ( and he has tried more than his fair share round the world ). The food is unlike your normal curry house and the quality consistently good. The staff are always... More

Really excellent food, just as good as the other branches of this Keralan style restaurant. Lamb is melt in the mouth, Dosas are big and nicely filled (hairy bikers & Paul Hollywood have both come to this branch for cookery shows btw) - different style and flavours to the usual north Indian style cooking - well worth a visit. Also... More

To conclude in one sentence, Kayal served the best ever, authentic malayalee food I have ever had away from Kerala.
