Father's day treat went seriously wrong as the vegetarian food was not even average.(some of my family members are strict vegetarians). Taste was average but the products used were not even fresh. Went there with high expectations, but came home disappointed. Non vegetarian probably would be good as Kerala food is mainly fish. Waiter has to be given 5 star... More

The Kayal Restaurant hosted our evening meal, post to a team event. There were 50 of us in total and we opted for a tasting menu. I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough! The food is absolutely beautiful, the staff extremely informative about the food and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The manager Sajith was extremely accomodating... More

We went to Kayal and had a wonderful meal the flavours of the food are just beautiful. However at the end of our meal the all invasive smell of bleach came through from the kitchen and was rather off putting. I love the idea of the place being clean, but for me it took the edge off a wonderful eating... More

We went on a Bank Holiday Sunday evening just before 9 pm. We have been to kayal several times before and the food is superb. I would say the good was still great the evening I am writing about but the service was terrible. We waited an HOUR for our first course. And then we waited another HALF HOUR for... More

What a find in Leamington Spa! We read some other reviews on TA and Yelp and decided to give it a try. We tried the Cheera erachi lamb curry, Crab thoran (crab meat stir fried with coconut, mustard seeds, onion and ginger) and Kerala fish curry. Each dish was subtle and unique and absolutely delicious. We really wished we had... More

The setting and the service aren't particularly special; however, the food is delicious. I have been to Kayal a lot and I can safely say that this is one of my favourite restaurants in Leamington, and the best Keralan restaurant I have been to. Their Keralan Thali, or Sadya (an assortment of dishes, traditionally vegetarian, accompanied with rice and a... More

I've been here a couple of times, and can honestly say that this place really is a gem of Leamington Spa. It's a South Indian restaurant, so not your typical curry house, all the food is homemade. I've had the beef chops and the tilapia fish, both of which were amazing and I really recommend. The decor is very impressive,... More
