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

We went there for a family eat-out after believing all the great verdicts in Trip advisor. We were all hungry and asked the manager if the food would be ready a bit early. On confirmation, we took our seats. Few more people arrived after us. It took 70 minutes for our order to be served. People after us had their... More

We have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years, and quite simply this is the best tandoori restaurant in Leicester. Dinesh and his family make you feel at ease, the quality, taste and presentation are first class Try his signature dish Chili Chicken, followed by a choice from 'the new sweets menu' Paul , Judy, Fred & Mary

We were warmly welcomed to this local favourite. The food was simply incredible. I haven't tasted anything this good in an Indian restaurant. Ever. The curries were so delicately spiced, it really...

We went here for a friends birthday. Considering there was 19 of us, they coped very well for a Wednesday night and being nearly full the other customers all got their food in a timely manner. Now it's not the cheapest curry in town but it's well worth the extra cost. Contrary to other reviews, the portions were large enough... More
