Expected so much !!!!!!!!!! I visited here with a friend in June after reading the reviews. I have eaten at numerous Indian Restaurants around the world and feel this was not one I would rush back too. The poppadoms were like taco's and the naan bread was only slightly thicker than an after 8 mint. The rice was very nice... More

We visited the Khyber in Melton rd last night, we all enjoyed our meals, 3 of us had poppadums, with pickles, lime pickle, mango chutney and raita, the pickles were particularly nice, tasted like home made. Our starters were good, the main courses were lovely, I had chicken biryani & keema nan, the birayani was a little hotter than I... More

Regular visitor to this eatery... a hidden gem amongst Leicester's fine Indian restaurants. The chilli chicken is sublime and hands down one of the best dishes...ever!

We have been coming to The Khyber for over twenty years and it remains one of my favourite restaurants. It is quite small so we always book. On arrival there is always a warm welcome from Dinesh and he will guide you through the menu should you need some suggestions. Dishes to delight in are the chilli chicken starter and... More

Visited this place with friends and was pleasantly surprised. I have to say the poppadoms were awful - hard, chewy and got welded to your teeth. Not to be recommended at all. The curry however was lovely. The paneer tikka masala was delicious, perhaps the best I've had, and the chicken simba was a big hit too. The naan breads... More

The food and service is outstanding. We are ALWAYS welcomed with a smile and exceptional professional service to go with. A very clean restaurant with a fresh atmosphere. Foods to try are the Kadai chicken wings (definitely not the ordinary type), these are full of good flavour but surprisingly not over powering with typical strong pungent spices which is nice!...
