3 lady's needing a little something at lunchtime this restaurant did not disappoint us. My companion eats here regularly and I can see why. The light salad option with succulent chicken tikka and a perfectly cooked garlic and coriander naan was a delight. The atmosphere was relaxed and calm and the service was extremly attentive.

4 of us turned up at 10.40pm For what we hoped would be a nice curry... Unfortunately they were closed even though they were not. As visiters from London we were hoping the Leicester curry repritation was well founded... Unfortunately not. Now back at the Ramada who have offered to source us a curry...

The restaurant claims to represent the two differing worlds of the Raj in India, privilege and service and seems to have lived upto the name Mem-saab, used as a universal mark of respect. I went there with my two lovely daughters on a weekday evening for dinner just before Christmas as I wanted to try something new and had heard... 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.
