have been to khyber many times. very good service and good food, but their mains are always a bit of a let down. pity really. i feel the mains are either very tomato-ie, or loaded with garam masala taste. the starters on the other hand are very very good and unique. LOVE their service. always greeted with smiles and the... More

Khyber Tandoori is one of the finest Indian restaurants you would ever eat at. Their range of dishes and customer service has to be the best I have ever experienced. I been to many restaurants in Leicester and this place has simply blown me away. The manager Dinesh Raval is a great host and offers a very personal service and... More

Having missed Diwali Day we decided to head down Belgrave Road and look at the lights and have dinner in one of the curry houses. Having been turned away from two as they were packed, we happened upon Khyber and got the one spare table. Lots of Indian families eating there which is always a good sign. It was lovely,... More

I am a foodie and very critical of Indian restaurants in particular. I can say this restaurant is one of the finest in Leicester and I always recommend it to my friends. Dishes of note. Chili chicken. Butter prawns Staff curry.

Found on trip advisor and did not disappoint. Excellent helpful service with the chef coming to our table. The food was well seasoned and spiced and you could taste the individual herbs and spices in the dish. The auburgine methi was the highlight. Goes down as my best curry ever. Need to work on the popadoms. Many thanks. Off home... More

We dined here as a four on a Friday evening in August. The location isn’t great, as there is no parking for customers to the restaurant which I agree is not the fault of the restaurant, but it doesn't help if you are travelling by car. The restaurant itself is not overly attractive inside, with office like tables and chairs... More

Khyber is a long standing family run business. I have to say, if you are coming here in need of a standard tandoori, you would have picked the wrong place. The flavours in the food in this restaurant are unique. They have unique spices used to enhance the fresh herbs used in the dishes. I highly recommend the chilli mogo... More
