Really tasty food, when it comes. Service can be slow at peak times/if you order their "filet-o-fish" equivalents. On the expensive side but the food is worth the price. Good service. Do go!

As a native indian i love the cuisine from the south of India, and Kayal comes very close to the authenticity. I am vegetarian so i order the lentils & chickpeas curry, my friends love the Fish dishes. The fresh juices there are the best!!

I didn't think they could pull off a dairy-free Christmas party menu, but they pulled it off. Two members of our company can eat meat but not dairy, and they succeeded in cooking the most delicious dairy free creamy curries and buttery soups. I couldn't...More

The food was excellent. You could smell the spices. The prawn dish was delicious and well balanced. Spicy enough but not to burn your mouth. The lamb and spinach was superb. The lamb was nicely cooked and tender. And the pooris, great taste.
