I wasn't sure what to expect apart from another Indian Restaurant, but it was nothing of the sort. Good atmosphere, helpful staff (Sophie), and outstanding food. I cannot recommend it enough if you want a something a bit different.

Really interesting & different style of Indian cuisine. Everything was beautifully cooked and nicely presented. Pleasant enough atmosphere but chairs a bit uncomfortable. They seem understaffed in front of house as service is just a bit too slow initially and often no waiter evident when you look for someone, although food comes out within an acceptable period of time and...

I recently visited this branch with 7 other colleagues. We were sat on a table in a section upstairs which was great as we were out of the way from everyone else with only 1 other large group. Bad things first - the wait was quite long, we were sitting there for about 15 minutes until we were asked for... More

Recently went for a midweek celebratory dinner in Kayal, the atmosphere was brilliant and the staff were exceptionally fantastic. I think being able to ask staff about the cuisine they know the best and have brilliant suggestions without feeling silly is a wonderful quality. The food most importantly, wow, it is different from your usual curry and the flavours were... More

Being a South Asian you tend to miss spicy curries and meals soon after you leave your country. Kayal bridged that gap. A group dinner has been organized during our meeting in UK at Kayal. I found that apart from Leamington Spa you have it in Nottingham and one another place in UK. I truly enjoyed my meals there. Spicy... More

My friend and I had a fabulous meal here tonight. We are in Leamington Spa for one night, and looked on tripadvisor to tell us where to eat. Being from "up north" we hadn't really wanted to go for a curry as we have some of the best in the UK on our doorstep in Leeds. So reluctantly, we decided... More

The food was really really good, but it took a while to come to us and the waiters were not coming close to the table so we could order more drinks..

This place is incredible. We have never had such excellent service. Our waiter (Sajith Philip) could not have been more helpful and spent ages with us advising us on which dishes to have. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and rightfully proud of their cuisine. We were checked on numerous times throughout the meal but not in an invasive manner and... More

Been here with my family and housemates a few times now and I haven't been disappointed. The curries are really tasty and are not your usual Indian food. Good value, not too expensive and friendly, prompt staff. Also has a nice atmosphere due to the interior design.

Kayal specialises in Southern Indian dishes, which are a delicious change to the more common Anglicised curries available elsewhere. If you can't choose, the 3 course meal with a Thali is the perfect choice, for which I would advise being very hungry! A wide selection of curries allows you to try all of the flavours. I think the Nadan Kozhi... More
