Dined here last Thursday and what a memorable experience it was. Jay took care of us from start to finish and made sure that the chilli heat of our dishes was exactly what we wanted. Food was wonderful, service was impeccable and table linen was immaculate. Regarding the meal, the dahl and plain nan was the best I've tasted and... More

Had heard mixed reviews of Memsaab therefore hadn't been before but thought we'd give it a try today after a change in lunch plans. On arrival we were seated in the bar area for approx 5 mins whilst our table was made ready. We ordered from the lunchtime menu at £7.95 per person for starters and mains (with choice of... More

The food was ok (not great) but after ordering light (1 starter, 1 main, 2 sides plus drinks for 2 people), we were told that there was a minimum spend of £10 per head. The waiter said he'd let us off this time!? This despite the fact that the bill came to £30 for 2 people. Didn't feel very welcome... More

I remember mends abs tiny beginnings in Leicester. I have to say the food was better the but you potentially were the only customer in. Now the food is a little more standard got the masses. The bar area is cute and the large glass sides upstairs add to the decor. The staff are very friendly and courteous. The one... More

The service is very good at Memsaab. Nice bar area where you can have a few drinks before dinner. The upstairs dining area is nice and airy. Tables on the balcony as well, so its nice to have dinner up there on a summers night. The food was average, nothing special for the price.

Whilst our initial qaiter was really good and took time to understand a food allergy the other waitera that touched our table were poor and just doing the basics. Food was tasty but it took an hour to get the bill - others may have walked and they also put the tip on the bill so just watch out for... More

Went there on a Friday night with family. Small room upstairs. Décor was nothing special. Popadoms came very quickly with chutney trays. Ordered 5 starters and none of them were much good. How can you justify charging £5 or more for 3 pieces of dry chicken or lamb. Or £5 for 4 small pieces of fish ! Taste was very... More

Dear Jsuman, The prices we charge are for the quality of meat ,fish which we buy and the ingredients which we use. you can get cheap fish which is served cheap in restaurants, but we don't do that. I would reiterate that this is not a hype but judged by our customers, who do patronize us. I am dissapointed to... More

We came here for lunch and had good quality food, but the atmosphere is strange. Understated simple food like garlic chilli chicken and rogan josh, "rice" or "nan". The starters were nicer and the home made pickles were excellent. It hardly seems Indian; maybe the Anglo-Indian is deliberate but that is not stated on the menu anywhere. You can get... More

Our food is freshly made and... More
