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.

If you are looking for quality Indian food in pleasant surroundings this is it! 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

I did feel sorry for them as they seemed to be struggling. At one point no waiter in sight for over 5 mins in a packed restaurant. All i wanted was some water.... More
