Enjoyed a lovely meal in Kajjal this evening. Didn't book as it was a Monday but it was so busy there was only room outside. It was a lovely evening and the outdoor area is heated. The food was very tasty. Would definitely recommend it and will come again.

Kajjal has to be one of my go to restaurants when looking for somewhere fancy but casual at the same time. Along with their wide selection of wines, spirits and cocktails which complements the wide variety of food from fish to lamb, from spicy to mild and they're fantastic starters. Nothing disappoints. Not to mention the poppadoms and dips before... More

Hi All, We went there for my boyfriend's birthday celebration, it wasn't planned but we ended up getting a table as it was very busy. The interior is very nice and cozy, the food is delicious but very spicy. Me and my friend got different dishes but our partners the same (protein platter) I think it's called, its a selection...

We hadnt booked but they fitted us in on a Saturday evening, we were just lucky. The service was very attentive and the food was really tasty with excellent flavour all washed down with really nice wine. Crispy Poppadoms and really good dips were complimentary. we just had main courses but would definitely eat here again. Enjoy

Second time trying this restaurant. Food is nice but nothing to write home about. Have had better from carry outs. Overpriced. Nice surroundings and lovely staff. But menu needs revised.

I've eaten here many times since it opened and really enjoy the Pakistsni/frontier style cuisine - fresh, besutufully spiced and delicious. Great, friendly staff.

We ordered the seafood platter for a starter and it was divine. An array of fish cooked in different sauces and marinates. Staff were accommodating with my main as I wished to change some... More

I don't come here as much as I like. I can't fault it. Wonderful food. Great location. Good atmosphere. Lovely staff. I'm getting hungry thinking about.
