Lovely Date Night!!

Arrived on time, seated straight away by a really friendly waiter. Starters and mains both lovely. Service friendly but not intrusive. I would say its quite expensive for what it is but the restaurant is really lovely and we did have a lovely evening so thank you!!

Food was OK nothing spectactular or really different.Food was small quantites on the plates and overpriced for the menu that was offered. Service was OK too but not very attentive to the customers. Would rather go to another part of Leicester to have a better Indian meal.

I have eaten Indian food any a number of countries and this place ranks right up at the top of places I've eaten. We came for lunch and the service was friendly and helpful. The lunch portion was perfect sized and the combo lunch came with a little appetizer which was yummy. The chicken Tikka Masala was fresh and the... More

A group of 9 of us went for a friends birthday and whilst the restaurant is lovely with friendly staff, the food was average and pricey, whilst the service was slap dash. Some of us had the mixed tandoori dish but we laughed when it arrived as the three small pieces of tandoori were overwhelmed by the massive plate they... More

It's been a while since I've eaten here but the food was really nice. Very flavoursome and very varied. The prices are reasonable to. The only thing is it can get a little cramped when there are a lot of people in. We usually go here before going on for the cocktails. These are very good and very reasonably priced.... More

Went as part of a familiy celebration, I really liked the fun atmosphere. From the piano playing in the lobby to Amit the Magician, the whole feel of the place was fun. Food wise, I'd prefer a little more choice to go with the poppadoms, but the menu had some excellent choices and wasn't overpriced. Drinks are what let this... More

I have eaten Indian food all over the world, and I was absolutely amazed at the Butter Chicken Masala I ate here. Gastronomically delightful in every way. It was the perfect blend of creamy, sweet and spicy, and, I am told, Raj's Mum's special family recipe. I offered Raj some US dollars to give up the recipe, but it didn't... More

We are 4 ladies in our late sixties & early seventies who meet for lunch every month or two. The Memsaab is undoubtedly one of the best restaurants we have been to so far, so we are returning there this month. The fast track lunch is only £7.95 for a starter and a main course served with rice or tandoori... More

Mem Saab is a modern looking Indian Restaurant that boasts a lovely veranda for those who enjoy some al fresco dining. There's an awful lot of competition out there in Leicester when it comes to Indian food especially and Mem Saab is up there with the best of them. Food is consistently good, my lamb dish was tender, creamy and... More
