We hadn't booked and needed to be served and away within an hour to catch a film at the nearby Cinema. They seated us, listened to our request, served drinks promptly. Food was also prompt and delicious and definitely different to our usual Indian restaurant choices! Polite, efficient and it was nicely busy for an early Saturday evening.

I went to this place with my wife for dinner. We didn't have a reservation. The place was empty. Still the guy told us we have to finish our dinner hour, which was embarrassing. Then there was this white couple who didn't have a reservation either. The waiters gave a big smile and a nice place. Then we ordered and... More

How have I only discover this place in my home town! Walking into a South Indian style beach hut in the middle of Leamington spa is quite a treat. Pre cinema dinner, I experienced the joy that is Lentil Dosa. For under £7 the HUGEST yummy filled lentil pancake arrived with 3 sides consisting of coconut paste and two other... More

Great vegetarian selection, which was to be expected at an Indian restaurant. As soon as I started asking about dairy the waitress asked if I was vegan (which I am) and was able to show me exactly which items were suitable, and which could be adjusted. For the first time in ages I was able to get a bread, yummy... More

Kayal is very welcoming and has a lovely atmosphere with great decor. When we visited we found it busy, but not overly so, so we were able to get a table without a reservation. The waiter took a little while to come over for our order, but after that the service was very good. The food in Kayal is more... More

First impressions of this place aren’t the best, as the lighting is a bit stark. Not the usual dark and cosy feel you usually feel from an indian. That said, this is no ordinary indian restaurant. ou won’t find Chicken tikka masala, or Jalfrezi on this menu. The currys are more authentic in nature – although that’s the idea, I... More

We go here at least once a month for dinner and my wife sometimes lunches here. The cuisine is South Indian which is less common than other regional cuisines. It includes several fish dishes as well as lamb, chicken and vegetarian, and a wonderful mixture of flavours Very good value for both food and wine. We rarely pay more than... More
