Tried this for a lunch time meal on recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed. The meals were delicious, reasonably priced and and served by friendly helpful staff. Loved the decor, especially the Royal Enfield motorcycle!

We went there for a dinner on NYD as we fancied something Indian. Unfortunately this is not the best place if you want to eat good Indian meal. Food was overpriced, reheat and tasteless. On the top of that the service not so great either....More

This is our fourth visit to Kayal, it’s safe to say we love it. The food and service is always excellent. Our waiter offered excellent advice and the Kayal Sadya Thali and Dosa tasted fabulous. It’s a given we will be back.

Hi, I had a very nice fish curry one time and a biryani another time. Both were delicious and not too hot. The restaurant staff are very helpful and will guide you through the menu. Hope this helps.
