I took my daughter and her boyfriend for a meal here Saturday night and have to say it was one of the best meals I've had. We booked early evening and, not happy with the table we were given, were moved without problem. Then our waiter helped me choose my main course (tilapia baked in a banana leaf - delicious).... More

Having been to Kayal in Nottingham and really enjoyed it I thought I'd give the one in Leicester a try as they had a business lunch for less than a fiver which sounded great value. There were 2 options chicken or veg which was a bit disappointing given how good the fish dishes I had in Nottingham were. I would... More

Disappointed with the starters but Dosa's were authentic, great tastes. I would go as far to say that they are the best Dosa's in the UK. The sambhar steel bowls need to be a little bit bigger though! Would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves Dosa's!

Having read a good review in a national paper I was looking forward to eating at the Kayal. Especially as it is in Leicester where I'm based. We had to wait for an 1 hour 15 mins for our food. Luckily my friend and I had a lot to catch up on. The staff were very nice but pushed. It... More

Every dish on the menu is so tempting you will be spoiled for choice. There is something for everyone with an excellent selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. If you enjoy subtle, multilayered flavours this is the place for you. Service is superb and staff friendly and helpful. Always busy so book ahead.

A review in the Daily Telegraph by Matthew Norman rated this restaurant in early 2014 and we have just got round to a visit. Helpful friendly Rayesh steered us through a business man's lunch.This is not a your ordinary Indian curry house. Tasty and plentiful and what value at £4.95 Southern Indian food at its best and they catered for... More

We've been to this place twice now and have had really great service both times. The food is both different and delicious with a range of meats and vegetables all from this region of India. This place is also great for celiacs since many of the pancakes/ bread options are made from lentil and rice flour. It does get busy... More

I went on spec one evening with a friend and found the food to be excellent and the service from Marshall, the waiter, to attentive and friendly without being overbearing. He even arranged for one of the dishes to be altered for my personal taste. It was also good value.
