We have enjoyed a coupe of meals at the Kayal, where the fare is very different from the usual Indian curries. It is spicy but not hot, and the dhosas are particularly good. You may need a bit of help in interpreting the menu. We found the service especially good on both occasions we visited. We would certainly go again... More

We came here after reading all the excellent reviews and we were very dissapointed with the meal, wouldnt visit again. Fatty lamb and very little flavour we love Indian food and wanted to try a real taste of south India but didnt enjoy the food here.

We've been many times at Kayal for dinner with both friends, family and colleagues. It is definitely our favorite Indian restaurant around Warwick and Leamington. The Masala Dosa is strongly recommended, and the Kumarakom Duck Roast is probably the best duck curry ever had. Strongly recommended.

I went in with five friends as part of the Leamington Food Festival trail and was treated to samples of various dishes which tasted fresh and appetising. The food was also rather different from the usual curry menu on offer. I would happily go back, the only downside was the decor was a bit dated, although the motorbike was unusual!

I am often press-ganged into going to this restaurant, but I have no idea why anyone would like eating the food. Reliably an unbalanced bludgeoning of spice (not heat, spice). I would take any other restaurant on the same street in preference.

Having spent spent some time traveling around Kerala, I know what real South Indian food should taste like. Much to my surprise, given the poor quality of most Indian restaurants in the UK, this one is the real deal. The food at Kayal actually tastes just like real South Indian food, and it's delicious. The menu isn't huge, but hits... More

Our first visit to Kayal leamington spa. One of my close friend explained how much she enjoyed the thali here. This comes with lots of small portions of special curries(both veg and meat) along with a starter (soup) and an Indian dessert. My wife was surprised on thali and she experienced the full flavour with the right blend of kerala... More
