We went here pre-covid and were looking forward to going back - it did not disappoint! I chose the filleted seabass again, filled with prawns. It is served with spicy potatoes, lemon rice and a side salad, with a sauce. It was absolutely delicious. My...friends also enjoyed their food very much, and my husband his chicken biriyani. I think the secret is not to over indulge on starters - we just shared some poppadom style treats, so we fully enjoyed our meal. The service was efficient. The restaurant has a good ambience, tables nicely spaced and prettily decorated with fairy lights. I saw they were serving cocktails and I will try one of these on my next visit. I especially liked that this is not a 'normal' indian restaurant - there are lots of interesting takes on Indian style dishes and this is one of the attractions for me.More

Found Kayal when looking for a place to eat near to the hotel we were staying. Lovely atmosphere, great service, thanks Joseph, and great food. Not your standard curry dishes, great layering of spices in the lamb dish, some lovely spicy donuts, juicy prawns with...fresh coconut and a chutney..... .. Will definitely return next time in the area.More

Our first visit since lockdown so was really looking forward to this. Our table was very wobbly and had to be fixed with napkins. Drinks order was taken promptly and service was slick to start off with. Our starter was ok but could have been...warmer. We had to ask for more cutlery for our mains, some thing that should have been done when the starters were cleared. My husbands seafood dish was fine but I felt that my lamb dish had had the meat cooked separately and added to the sauce and not in it. Plates were cleared eventually and we asked for the dessert menu which arrived with a lack of enthusiasm from the waiter who seemed more intent on talking to his colleagues. My husband ordered a coffee which took 25 minutes to arrive although we did mention after 10 that we had a train to catch. We ended up paying the bill whilst still waiting for the coffee to arrive and the waiter had the cheek to ask if we wanted to add a tip!!!!! Kayak used to have efficient and friendly service, and the food was different and interesting, how times have changed.More

Lovely atmosphere and gourgeous food. Great service from Akash. Definitely a place to check out if you are visiting Leamington and like genuine Indian food.

Decided to try this place as local to the area. Beautiful decor music and vibe to the place. Staff were professional and kind. We ordered some chili paneer chili fish and one masala dosa. The chili fish was excellent. Dosa was good. Possibly not as...much flavour and spice as could have been but overall nice. Would definitly come back again but possibly try some different things from the menu or possibly request fish to adjust the spices a bit.More
