We've gone from just having Indian restaurants to regional style Indian restaurants now and this place certainly delivers. Having been in here a dozen or times I have never been disappointed.

One visit saw a member of our party knock a piece of cutlery on the floor, within seconds it had been collected by the waiter and swapped for a clean one! Ok if your'e sat upstairs when it's a weeknight you may have to wait to get some attention and ask for the bill but generally speaking it's very good.

Food is outstanding and I would definitely recommend looking thru the menu before you go, otherwise you'll need to spend the time it takes to drink two pints whilst you sift thru and decide. However the Seasonal Fried Fish or Lamb Puffs are always a great starter. Main course I love the Kayal Fish Curry or Mixed Seafood Curry - especially with the Ghee and Garlic rice!!! Also make sure you have the mixed poppadom plate which comes with various sorts including the Keralan Acchappams which is a regional specialty of coconut milk, rice flour and black sesame seeds <-- eat these with the coconut chutney or lemon pickle.

I could eat here every day!

We visit Kayal regularly. The food is amazing.Staff are always polite and helpful.The decor is quirky and the restaurant is clean. Prices are very resonable too.Its a great place for meeting friends.However I have two issues:
It's not an ideal place to take children unless they are used to spicy food and there is nothing else on the menu for them. My 5 year old granddaughter had rice and bread only.
Also the toilets are located upstairs. I was unaware of a downstairs toilet for older or disabled patrons

I have visited kayal a few times now, and it is by far one of my favourite restaurants in Leamington. And is defiantly the best Indian in Leamington. Friendly staff (I was served by Shashank) it is no usual Indian restaurant the food is of such higher quality, it will take you a wile to decipher the menu as each meal comes with a small story of its origins! And the food is not your usual commercialised curry's! Price it is marginally expensive but again, the quality justifies the extra price!!
