Food hit and miss for the price but good overall!

Went on a Friday evening with work friends for a celebration. The restaurant was very busy so had a good atmosphere. We started with a cocktail downstairs whilst we waited for everyone to arrive. We were then shown to our table upstairs before being greeted by the manager. Was slightly put off... read more

We arrived without a booking on a Sunday night. The food was excellent. The staff were polite, helpful and keen to discuss levels of spicing. You don't need a rice each! Going back when we are next in Leicester for sure 😊

We came for a romantic meal on a Saturday night and couldn't get a booking til 8.30 due to the restaurants immense popularity , we then waited another half an hour before being shown to our table , our orders were taken but due to high volume of people in the restaurant we didn't get our food for another hour!!...

Although the decor is stylish and the atmosphere is enjoyable, the food is below than average with a very expensive price tag. The food is not made fresh, it is just reheated so you cant make any specialist changes. There was also confusion on whether the ostrich and kangaroo are halal, even though I was told as a customer that... More

We are not locals but were visiting our daughter at university. We chose this place on a whim as it was opposite the cinema. What a find. It can only be described as fine dining. The restaurant is on several floors and is decorated simply, cleanly and with class. The staff are most efficient, friendly and attentive. The food was... More

We had one of our top clients visiting from Spain who had booked into the Travelodge in Leicester city centre. We offered dinner and choose the Memsaab for its location more than anything. We were not disappointed. The place was busy for a cold Tuesday night in January and we hadn't booked but were given a great table overlooking the... More

We visited the restaurant today afternoon. We had booked in advance. The restaurant is situated in Highcross so we decided to park in the John Lewis car park. Its a short walk from there. Location is good and the interior nothing fancy or exotic. Plain, simple décor. We were shown a corner table. The restaurant was quite empty except a... More
