Excellent birthday meal

Visited here for a family birthday meal and had a great evening. The service and food were excellent and we were very well looked after by our waiter Tom. The staff brought out a cake at the end and came and sang happy birthday which was a lovely touch.

We were recommended to visit this restaurant that offers dishes from Kerala, Southern India. The menu was very different to any other Indian restaurant I have visited and the food was of an excellent quality. The staff were very attentive at all times and it all made for a very enjoyable evening. I would highly recommend a visit to experience... More

My wife and I were recommended Kayal by a friend: she informed us this was the best Indian food she had ever eaten outside of India. I would add this is some of the best food I have ever eaten - period. I've eaten a fair number of Indian takeaways or at Indian restaurants down the years, but Kayal stands... More

We liked it and would recommend a visit. It is different and in a nice way, the food is fresh, tasty, presented well and nothing like any other Indian restaurant we've been to... and we've been to lots... Hate to put a number on it, gives the wrong impression but I wouldn't be surprised if it were near 100. There... More

We called in to Kayal on recommendation and although they were reasonably busy, seated quickly with no booking. I found the menu very different to the Indian restaurants I usually visit and personally found it a challenge to identify starters and mains and also read because of low lighting, paper colour and type size. However, the pleasant staff were on... More

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. As mentioned above, I... 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!
