“Friday night dinner”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I walked past the restaurant this afternoon whilst visiting Leicester. Made a booking for this evening and had a superb meal. We have a favourite restaurant back home in Sussex, but if we lived here, Kayal would now be my new favourite. I don't need to say any more really, it was fabulous. Flawless. Staff wonderful, food varied and perfectly cooked and presented and supremely flavoursome. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Just THE BEST around here. The staff were very friendly, efficient, always carrying a smile.We have been there four times in 2 months which is too much for us too. We take all our friends there as the ambience is perfect and service is cool and the main thing food is the best I've ever had in a long time. The portions are BIGGGGG and we always end up taking them home as we're unable to finish it. Chicken Biryani is our best out there. We normally like it a bit hot and upon request they make it spicier for us which suits us just fine. The price was good too. A must if you are in the area.

“Average indian food”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

The restaurant looked very nicely decorated. The service was very good. I loved the appetizers but the main was not very tasteful. However, we were expecting more authentic flavours but it was very much watered down. A little bit more spices would be nice.

“Really Nice”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went here on a Saturday night for a meal with some friends. We had to get their early but were seated immediately and not rushed through our meal for other people.

The food was lovely. Really different and tasty and there were some amazing breads too. For the quality and quantity of the food it was great value.

We always worry about where to take our friends to eat when they come and visit Leicester and we are really happy that we have found this great place.
