That curry....

Have you tried their signature fish curry? I would ask its hand in marriage. It's the only thing that is keeping me from going full on vegetarian nowadays. On a more serious note, I've lived in India for half a year and grew up in south east Asia. The food here is delicious, homely and authentic... read more

I've been to Kayal about 5 times so far, and everything I've tried has been absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough good things about this place. It is different from a typical Indian not restaurant, so don't expect to order Chicken Tikka Masala, do expect to try something new and brilliant!

Can't reccommend this place enough. Truly incredible and authentic indian food. If you are used to your average curry house this will nothing like what you have tried before. Really unique flavour combinations and still working my way through the menu of dishes i haven't tried yet. Also very reasonably proced, lovely decor inside and the staff are always friendly...

It was my birthday and I was visiting Leamington Spa for a day out with my husband. We came across this authentic looking South Indian Restaurant and decided to have a light lunch. The interior of the restaurant was quite ethnic and it has a thatched roof area which is the heart of the restaurant. The food was really good,... More

Reviews looked good so thought we'd eat here after visiting Gaydon motor museum. So glad we did, the appetisers were brilliant as were the starters, especially the Adlpoll Aadu/Kozhl, which was truly delicious. The mains were also good and the service friendly and attentive.

I went to Kayal with my family on a Saturday night. l had banana fritters followed by a fish curry with cavada. The fritters were ok - pretty stodgy with sauces that were a little bland. The curry and cavada was a lot better - both full of flavour. So overall the food was pretty good - it seemed authentic.... More
