I visited Kayal today and had a wonderful meal. The salmon tandoori had an exceptional taste as did the other dishes we had. I would certainly recommend Kayal.

We didn't need to book, and came early. The food was excellent, and it was possible for a non-chilli eater to have a good meal. The portions are such that a starter and pudding are unnecessary. The mango lassi is quite wonderful.

I'd say more expensive than most Indian restaurants in Leicester, but one of the best I've been to.
