I visited Kajjal Restaurant Friday with 4 friends. Found the staff....apart from 1 girl....to be most unwelcoming. On arrival was just pointed in direction of my table where my friends were already seated. I feel there meeds to be more to a restaurant than good food!!!

If you like spice food, this is there right restaurant for you. Lovely starters, and a great choice of main courses will make it hard to choose! I love the Lamb for starters and a nice chicken Korma. Kids menu available as well and they will love the really skinny chips! The cocktails are very nice and dangerous ;-) Athmospere... More
