I visited Kayal with my wife and child, with high hopes. First impressions are very clean, modern and stylish.
We ordered a starter consisting of poppadoms, chutneys, banana chips and toasted bread. Honestly, the chutneys were not to our taste. They actually tasted rather bitter and unpleasant, specially the sharp lemon style chutney. I'm guessing this is down to personal taste, but Not to my taste.
The main course was the chefs lamb speciality, which is a lamb based dish. This tasted fine and the lamb was very tender. A fairly tasty dish, and well seasoned. The other main was the mixed seafood curry, which wasn't great. Very expensive at 15 quid, and rather lack lustre. Had a raw slice of red pepper and raw tomato placed on top, which looked rather odd. Overall the mains were a mixed bag. The naan bread alternatives (south Indian I think) tasted great, and were lovely.
I've visited previously, and the biriyini was outstanding. So I'm guessing some dishes are better than others. I would come back again, and quite happily munch the food. Rather pricey, with some great dishes (some not so great).
