“Kayal Leicester is great!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

8 of us went to Kayal in Leicester on Sunday, food and service were excellent. The dosa's are huge and very filling, great tasting too. Poppadum selection with the pickles to start were to die for. We all had a selection of different curries, dosa etc and just loved it all. Lots of indian people eating in there which is always a good sign, and the atmosphere was lovely. Service excellent. All in all a very pleasing experience - as most of the party were vegetarians we stuck to veggie options. But the seafood platter that came out for another table looked so tasty. Will go back and try some of the meat curries next time.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Went to this restaurant for a group meal. Initially it was to be a buffet but because there were too few bookings (20+ were actually there!) we were palmed off with a plated starter (which was quite nice), 3 main courses to share including rice/pancake and bread and a rice pudding for dessert. Very little of the food was to my personal liking but I also heard a lot of the group uttering their disappointment too. The portions were very small and most were only lukewarm. I can certainly think of many better Indian style restaurants who give far better value for money. We also had to wait quite a while for drinks. After reading other people's reviews I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant - I won't be going there again!!!!
By the way - don't even think of using the toilets upstairs, disgusting!

“really great food in a shanti location”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

this is one of the best three indian restaurants in leicester (depending on which year etc.)...the main room was full, so we were lead upstairs. the ceiling was damaged, next to us was a party of asian locals (always a good sign) enjoying the intro to the weekend, and we sat with an old motorbike to our right. we had the non-veg thali - which was simply excellent. great place.
