A real treat, a delight for your tastebuds

A birthday treat from the wife last week, I've heard good things about this place but sceptic about the food. Well I can say it is true, the food are certainly delicious! Ok , the prices may be a little steep, the service a bit slow, the decor a hit and miss and the portions on the small size but... read more

Came here with a group of friends last year when visiting Leicester, as they said it was one of the best restaurants around. They were not wrong! The restaurant itself is quite a nice size. It's not too big like a chain restaurant, but it's not too small either. It was quite full though, and you will probably need an... More

What can I say - amazing food, amazing cocktails and amazing service. Nothing was too much trouble and it was all so tasty! Amazing dessert cocktails too!

I have not been to Leicester in 10 years and looked for the nearest hotel with an AA rosetted restaurant. This is never a guarantee of a decent meal but then again neither is a good TA rating (one of the most recent here is damning and impossible to reconcile with my experience for instance). I have used this method... More

Went with friends for New Years Eve . The starter was tasteless , the main course overdone , my friends fish looked like it been reheated in a microwave . The smoked salmon tasted strange and was dry . The service was disorganised , the decor looked like a Butlins holiday camp . Waste of £65 . We left early... More

A relaxed, atmospheric, unique and and beautiful place with inventive decor, attentive, polite and helpful staff and food that really excites all the senses in the most creative, artistic and yet unpretentious of ways. Cannot recommend it highly enough!

Booked a few weeks ago & due to Christmas parties only had a choice of 2 sittings. Very early or quite late so we plumped for the early doors seating. I must say at no time were we rushed - we all enjoyed a high quality 3 course meal with great drinks & quality service. The cocktails are lush from... More

I can't believe how good this place is - actually one of the best meals I have ever had, and I've dined in a couple of Michelin starred restaurants so that is some compliment. We stayed at the hotel Maiyango next door and, despite being urged by friends who have lived in Leicester to get a curry, we couldn't resist... More

Stayed at the hotel so came for breakfast and were not disappointed - the English and the garden breakfasts are delicious, good portions too. Service was nice and friendly but a bit unsure of the crossovers from the hotel bill to the restaurant, but if faffing, but overall a good meal.
