This restaurant started out as vegetarian but now serves meat and fish along with vegetarian food. We've been going since it opened and the meals have always been tasty and interesting, although prices have risen recently though they are still good value. The south indian cuisine is very different to run-of-the-mill indian food: we always take friends there who want... More

Service is great, food fantastic - why would I bother walking all the way to the Golden Mile with Kayal close to me? Seriously, best Indian food I've had, so far, in Leicester. You can usually get a table at quieter times, but, for a special occasion, don't be complacent and assume - book

We''ve always wanted to try one of the kayak Restaurant and we managed to this last night before going to the Thunder gig at De Montford Hall. We weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly, especially Marshall. A great experience. Highly recommended.

I have been here for lunch a few times. I find ordering the food a bit difficult and have ordered the Thali which is a compilation of different foods in small portions. It was alright nothing special. I think my palate requires something extra special now to impress me and Kayla does not have it. A bog standard Indian restaurant.... More

This place is a must try!! The food here is delicious and in abundance. The portions are good size and a very good variety of dishes to order. The waiters there always help me to debone my fish. The seabass stuffed with prawns and masala dhosa have to be ordered! Be sure to book on a weekend evening.. otherwise you... More

Enjoyed the business lunch here which cost £5.99 per person and was made welcome by Marshall. Its effectively a tasting platter including some deliciously tender chicken curry, vegetable curries, pickles and beautifully cooked rice and fresh dosa.

Whilst in city on business, used TA to look for a high rated Indian to eat for the evening, found Kayal as the top Indian and No. 3 overall. Originally booked for 2, then called 1 hour before table time and added 2 more colleagues, no problems. Food excellent with good advice on alternatives and additions, fish soup was amazing,... More

There is a large menu here to choose from. Often that is a warning sign of slapdash mediocrity but NOT here. We were a party of 7 and everybody had a different order and every dish was excellent even on a very busy Saturday night. That is the true test of a good restaurant. The waiters are friendly and efficient... More

Can't say enough good things about Kayal; the food was excellent, amazing flavours and 'melt in your mouth' chicken and lamb. Lovely place inside and great service. Great value for money too. Highly recommended and we will be back!
