The restaurant was busy - it was a Friday night - and we were glad we had reserved a table. By the time we left the place was full. Service was very good, and the menu was different from the usual Indian food. It was delicious too.

Back in Leicester again after a year and half so though we would go back to the Kayal again after such a good experience last time. We weren't disappointed. We went midweek and at just after 7pm it was already 3/4 full. The restaurant has a great feel to it with Indian wall carvings, slightly dimmed orange lighting and a... More

Some friends and I were visiting Leicester for the weekend, and were interested to find out which restaurants would be worth visiting. We came across Kayal's and booked a table on the day, but the only available table was at 9pm. We arrived a little bit earlier, and was greeted pleasantly. We waited a little bit for a table to...

We went here after the football match at the King Power Station. The staff were friendly and helpful (although a bit hard to understand!) We had a selection of pappadum style starters to share. I then had a filleted seabass filled with tiny prawns and spices - to say it was delicious is an understatement - I have never tasted... More
