We were travelling through Leicester and decided to stop over for a place to eat.

I'm in Leicester several times a year on business. I found this restaurant a couple of years ago, and it's now the only one I go to when I'm in Leicester. I'm not vegetarian, but this is a great, value-for-money restaurant. The staff are friendly, willing to help and recommend, and the food is fantastic. On my most recent visit,... More

I wouldn't normally choose a vegetarian restaurant but food here is amazing. The buffet lunch is great value with a choice of various currys and freshly cooked dosas brought to the table whilst dining. The service is very good I can't wait visit again soon.

Very nice food here. Will really miss this place when I move to Nottingham. Visit this restaurant far more than any other and that should say it all.
