The business lunch here is fantastic! I always have the vegetarian one but the meat I have been told is great too! This is proper Indian food not changed for British taste and the service is great! My favourite bit it always the dosa You can't get a better lunch deal anywhere like this!

Not your typical Indian curry house - plenty of choices of fish/meat/vegetarian dishes as well as many different types of breads. Our group had the lamb curry dish which was very nice , the chicken biryani was a bit chewy but also very tasty . Fast service. Not much choice of beers - but that's usual in many Indian restaurants.... More

Absolutely delicious South Indian food. The business lunch is amazing value and I've returned several times - dosa, a rice dish and several small portions of curries and chutneys. A delight to sample such a variety on one plate. Thank you Kayal!

I have gone to Kayal on several occasions and have never been let down. It is a great place for families to dine. I especially love south indian food and Kayal's prices are very affordable. I once went for lunch on a weekday and was pleasantly surprised by the business lunch deal. My one complaint is that I feel that... More

Love the flavours you get here - if you want something a little different and full of spice try this - lunch specials are great value. Fish is a bit of a must - try the curry. You will find things on this menu you may not have tried before - great quirky little place .

Super restaurant. Visited many times and always delivers great food. I've not been myself but I'm told the food is very authentic to the Kerala region.

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews on this site. The service was great and our main waiter Tom couldn't be more helpful in suggesting suitable dishes. With so much choice on the menu this was much welcomed as many of the dishes we hadn't heard of before despite eating in many Indian style and Asian restaurants up and... More

This was my second visit and again it was enjoyable and not too pricey, £60 for three people. My son's fish curry and the selection of breads were brilliant, though my lamb and spinach was a little bland. This has not put me off though as we had a lovely relaxing evening.
