As a curry fan of over 45 years standing I have never been disappointed with the Kayal. Great Kerala cuisine and exquisite service. Great before and after the theatre. If you go for only one curry in King Richard's City choose Kayal.

A great south Indian restaurant which does one of the best sea food curries I've had any where! Only criticism of it is it has too much squid in it! The service is good and food arrives in decent time. Their soups are also very tasty and make great starters.

All I will say is as soon as we left after having excellent food served by one of the best staff around, I was planning when we could come back AND we stay 2.5 hrs away !! !!!

I have been going to this restaurant for about 6 years now and th food is amazing... Definately value for money... But that doesn't bring the quality down, the place is immaculate and service is really good too. Can't fault the place. The grilled fish stuffed with rice and prawns are a must try

Went to Kayal on a Friday evening. Great reception from Balacoumar and his colleagues. This is the best Indian meal i have ever had. It's right up there with Benares in London. Strongly recommended.

There are a lot of Indian restaurants in Leicester but very few Southern Indian restaurants so this is a nice addition to the City. Visited with family (they are regulars and recommended it) and 2 friends from the US in September 2014 and we extremely impressed with it. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, the service was friendly but... More

I had the Crab Curry and my colleague had the Tilapia fish , both were excellent as usual. One disappointment here is with the mixed starters, a variety of 4 Poppadom styles served with 3 chutneys. The cost is £4.50 which I thought was overpriced . compared to other Indian restaurants. The chutneys had little flavour and the poppadoms were... More
