A party of 5 of us ate here having found it on trip advisor, we were very pleased. The food is excellent, the nicest Indian any of us had ever tasted. However the restaurant was cold on our arrival and the decor does not do the food justice. If you are not fussy about you surroundings don't miss this restaurant... More

I think this restaurant needs to focus on the food and less on the obsessive customer service! On the whole the food is good, similar to many restaurants, not outstanding. The poppadums and crispy snacks are not very good, sort of bland and not crispy enough. But ok. I think a basic poppadum is superior! The troubling thing is the... More

My husband and I went for lunch, having been given vouchers by a generous friend. We'd been previously but not for a long time. However, we won't be leaving it so long before the next visit. Freshly cooked, attractively presented, friendly staff and, obviously, delicious food. Spicy but delicate and a good choice of dishes for us vegetarians. Highly recommend.

Having enjoyed Kayal in Leicester, we happened to be in Leamington for the day and decided to try Kayal. We selected the business lunch and were delighted with it. Service was very efficient and super quick. Brilliant selection of different dishes at a reasonable price. The decor and the atmosphere in the restaurant was good. Excellent explanation of the meal... More

The food here is top class and from Southern India - Keralan - so is different to the normal run of the mill Indian/Bangladesh restaurants. It was arguably the best Indian meal I've ever had out. And the staff were charming. Highly recommended

Went on Saturday evening with my parents, brother, sister-in-law and partner. Food and service were excellent, lots of lovely flavours and unusual dishes to chose from and the food didn't sit heavily afterwards. As a coeliac it's great to be able to choose fermented rice pancakes. The reason for the meal was to celebrate my parents golden wedding anniversary and... More

I've been to the Kayal in Nottingham and was impressed enough to come try the Leamington Spa Kayal too. Lovely atmosphere, delicious food and great service. The only gripe is the amount of coconut used in some dishes....it tastes wonderful, but I just wonder how healthy it is! A minor minor complaint though...otherwise whole heartedly recommended!

The food here is exquisite and the service is attentive without being interfering. I recommend the Tilapia Pollichathu, a fish dish cooked in a banana leaf...divine! I eat and cook a lot of Indian food and this has to be my favourite Indian restaurant in Warwick/Leamington Spa.

This is different Indian food, it's chosen from specific districts in S India . Waiter was v helpful at helping what to choose, I enjoyed everything he suggested. Very tasty food, delicious flat breads, no need for the usual rice and naan breads.
