Love this restaurant

Love this place. Superb food, excellent attentive service and pleasant ambience. The prices are very reasonable for what you get and they are often doing special deals if you buy the voucher in advance.

Possibly one of the top 10 Curry houses in Leicester. I've been a couple of times & it's always been good.

I've been here on a few occasions and it never disappoints. This time it was for a friend's birthday so we were a big party. You're always made to feel welcome and all the waiters are very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. There's s great choice of starters...however, they are huge so be warned if you're expecting a little... More

Set meal for 4. Plenty to eat, good service, attentive to all needs. Politely quietened down a group of rugby supporters enjoying their night out. Good atmosphere

Excellent quick stop for a curry. Will definitely return. Only down side was that chicken tikka had been pre cooked so was over done and a bit dry. Loved the idea to bring a pre service taste of the main dishes ordered to check it will be to your liking.
