I came here after work on a Tuesday with my Fiancée. The food that we had was fantastic! The staff are very knowledgable on their dishes and don't need to use a notepad to remember your order. The waiter recommended certain dishes and the amount of rice we would need which I always like. Overall this was an extremely good... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal with 3 colleagues and have to say this place definitely lives up to its reputation as the best curry house in Leicester, staff were friendly and very attentive, setting and ambience were great too, lively but not so you couldn't chat or hear yourself think. The food however, well no wonder it has received rave reviews... More

Looking for something a little different on a business trip to Nottingham I stumbled across this place on here. I am honeymooning in South India later in the year and was intrigued by a Keralan specific restaurant. The food is really great, I recommend all first timers try the Thali for a real mix of dishes. Absolutely delicious. Service was... More

Visited on recommendation. Service was good and food was nice. Ordered the fish curry which was very tasty. Bread selectionwas fantastic. Tried 3 types and all were baked great. Probably not the best curry ive had in Nottingham but was good.

I reside in Lincolnshire township and its quite difficult to find authentic Indian food here. Went to Nottingham to meet my friends and my friend recommended Kayal. I am bit of a food critic myself - not the chef Ramsay level, but I usually rate my meals. I should say that it was one of the best meals I ever... More

Consistently very good food; tried chicken and fish starters, followed by lamb and aubergine mains. Service, from Tom, very friendly, offering good advice on dishes and prompt service! Will definitely be returning and recommending to friends.
