arrived as expected sat in the downstairs bar - nothing special and eventually taken upstairs to our table.. Waited quite a while for food order to be taken and to be honest a different type of menu but average in taste and value. We had a problem with one main course which was very water based and they did take... More

We went here three of us and the food was excellent but we found it quite expensive for Leicester (similar price for the same quality in Surrey). Try the specials rather than asking for the usual "curry house" style Indian food.

I visited on a Friday evening with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. I'd been meaning to try the place out for a while as I'd heard good stories about the place. Pre Dinner we had drinks in the lounge and the live piano is a nice feature - much enjoyed. The meals are served upstairs in a... More

I visited with friends for lunch following a previous dinner reservation being missed due to adverse weather (snow!). The setting is stunning, the bar area with the piano is really different for an Indian restaurant. Everyone who thinks Lasan in Birmingham looks good should come here, it's the next level up. Service is uber professional, the waiters know the food... More

Dear AkbarAli, we were able to get you the table during the quiet period of the evening ,generally for dining during the peak hours , tables have to be booked at-least a couple of months in advance specially on week ends. Hence forth we were able to get you the table without a reservation. As for the service charge it... More

Visited with colleagues on a frosty Dec evening. I was tired, freezing and not in the mood. Greeted into a friendly, welcoming space and was soon seated and starting to look forward to the evening. The food was a delight, Indian is not my favorite cuisine but these dishes were so flavorsome and delicate that I loved it. Really very... More
