We visited Kayal some time ago, but the experience still sticks in my memory. The menu was refreshingly different and interesting, not the same old dishes served out at the majority of Indian restaurants in Leicester. Everything had a South Indian and Goan flavour to it. My Goan fish curry was quite simply the best I`ve ever tasted (I`ve ordered... More

The food is, as always, excellent and not just " generic". Come midweek or less busy times for swift service.

I went to Kayak with three friends on Suday evening. It was fairly quiet ad you would expect but the service and food were as good as every. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I had the mixed seafood curry with coconut rice, it was truly delicious. The only slightly irritating thing about the evening was the noice... More

If you want to have a curry but are adventurous enough to try something different then come here. The food was superb and I had a duck dish that was so tasty and different to anything I have had before. The service was excellent and the place was totally full. Brilliant food at a good price. For a meal for... More

We visited the Kayal on a Saturday night. We were a party of four adults. Having reserved a table we were seated as soon as we entered. The service was excellent- not rushing you and not keeping you waiting. The menu was most unusual and specific to the southern part of India from what I could gather, but it was... More

Second visit confirmed this is a great place. We were a party of 12 celebrating a friend's birthday. The staff were lovely and the food was delicious. It took a bit too long to arrive though.... Staff were very happy to bring a birthday cake and candles to the table which we'd brought with us and then served an extra... More

Decent prices good service and great food! I had the prawns and they were beautifully spicy. This place had perfectly captured authenticity in their food. However the theme in their restaurant was a bit odd. It was perfectly quirky 😁
