Stopped here for a quick lunch with my dad who loves Indian food. We had the meat option business lunch which is 5.95 amd includes 2 chutneys, 3 small curries, rise and a dosa -more than enough to fill you up and such good flavours! Will be back here before long for sure.

Honest freshly prepared food, generous portions and always smiley people. Love Kayal's relaxing atmosphere and there is plenty to choose from. Thank you.

Most Indian restaurants offer the same menus. Not Kayal. Their dishes are much more interesting. I had a crab curry that was amazing but be warned - it's very messy! The staff are genuinely helpful. Blaize, who served us helped us choose some great dishes and made sure we didn't overdo it on the starters

Terrific food, nice atmosphere. Quaint touch having a lee Enfield motorbike as a feature. Service very good. This is not some Indian curry house. This is the real thing!

Kayal is a favourite choice for me. Their dishes are great and their ambience is complimentary to their good food. Try their Kottayam Egg Fry (like a egg curry dish) with some bread. Yummy!!! They used to do the Fish Briyani, this was delicious, I think if you pre-order (like a day or two in advance) they would still do... More

Best Indian in Leicester :) Was a little busy as it was Halloween, but that gave us free plates of little tasters, loved it :)

One of our reasons for coming to Leicester was to find good Indian restaurants and Leicester had been recommended by Madhur Jaffrey as the good place to look. As it turned out the Kayal very near our hotel so it was first stop, we had had a meal here last year and found very good and very different to our... More

Was bought here by my fiancé and I really enjoyed the food, staff and the atmosphere. The currys are somewhat different to the average currys you find in indian/Pakistani/Bengali restaurants. Haven't returned yet but will deffo choose this place if I was to bring the family out or go for a formal meal with friends! Quality food!!

We dined here on a Friday night, I had a fish curry which was delicious, such lovely flavours, my partner had tilapia which was recommended by the lovely, friendly waitress, it looked amazing and he said it tasted great. The waitress recommended which rice and bread to go with our meals. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the place had... More
