The kayal was recommended by a work colleague. And it didn't disappoint. The service was friendly and the restaurant was clean. The food was the best curry I've ever had. So light and full of flavour. Large prawns with tails on. I thoroughly recommend Kayal.

The tilapia in banana leaf is amazing. I can't recommend it enough. It is always so lovely. The staff are very helpful and really good with toddlers.

Delicious as always. We had a starter and main. I had fish curry for main and loved it. Husband had sea bass stuffed and lived it. Son on law had duck and loved it.

We were so lucky to get a table here on Saturday. We'd arrived with friends after the races & chose this restaurant as we'll be in Kerala in February. The menu is fantastic & so reasonably priced. We were guided through a number of courses....More

Tucked away at the corner of Granby Street next to Sainsbury and bang opposite to Premier Inn, Kayal has apparently existed since 2005. It's a small restaurant with a big heart. Wooden interiors and carvings give it an aesthetic decor. The service is exemplary and...More
