We had some vouchers to use up as some friends of ours had very kindly bought them as a wedding gift which was much appreciated and we had a super meal with them! Mmm the poppodums are just so tasty! I had one of the starter specials which was coconut lamb - it was melt in the mouth tender! I... More

Food is divine, service is absolutely outstanding, presentation excellent ambiance embracing and here comes the "BUT"...expensive and portion size is a mickey take! Arguably that's my problem as I do like my food but it just seemed to push the limit too far. I had Zafrani Salmon Tikka which just melted in your mouth and gushed flavour but it was... 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

Visited memsaab last week for a meal for my 30th birthday. My family had booked the chefs table as it was a special occasion. We were allocated A table next to the chefs, had a waiter serving just our table and were able to experience an eighth course taster menu. This was the first time I'd experienced this, really enjoyed... More

Service is friendly, at tentative and with a smile from the waiter to the owner. This is a well run outfit that makes you want to comeback as you feel welcomed and treated special. Food is superb, pricey for sure but you appreciate it. Downsides, difficult to say, can get noisey, that's it. Best Indian in the centre of Leicester.

Great atmosphere and lovely building to dine in. Great service, delicious food and two for one cocktails (not pre-mix, made fresh by the barman every time and they are large). It really is a cut above other Indian restaurants I've dined in over the years. We will definately be visiting regularly since recently moving to the area.

We were really surprised with the lovely atmosphere in here. We had first clas service and the food was amazing. Then the best surprise was how reasonably priced it was. Thank you for a great evening.

My brother decided he wanted to propose to his girlfriend and Memsaab was recommended as the place to do it. I took charge of organising their special occasion though I'd never done anything like it before. Contacting Memsaab was straight forward and it was easy communicating our requests for the evening. In the short time before the big event I... More
