Superb service and fresh, high quality food. Having a taster of the dish you order to allow you to decide on heat levels is inspired! Will be visiting again, soon!

They give you a small taster portion of your sauce to make sure you are going to like it, which is something which should be adopted by many more restaurants. The King Prawns in Kerala sauce was delicious by the... More

I was taken to this restaurant as part of my recent birthday present. Leicester must be the capital of Indian restaurants in the UK & this food was amazing - very authentic. Lots of real spices (not out of a packet !). When ordering you are offered a small taste of your choice so that you will know if its... More

Lovely food, I liked that they brought out a sample of your main to try to make sure it was how you like it before they brought it all out. Nicely decorated restaurant. Staff are polite and attentive. Will definitely visit again.

The taster is an excellent idea and helps distinguish this from the competition (well this is Leicester so you have plenty to chose from!). It can get busy with large family parties on Friday's and Saturdays so booking is essential at peak times. I have been... More

Service was quick and attentive. The waiters bring you a sample of your meal to try before they bring it to you so... More
