After a very disappointing meal at Wagamama we went around the corner to Memsaab for a cocktail. Thank god as it rescued the night, very friendly cocktail barman. We had four cocktails between three, well made well presented and well served. £15 for all four on 2for1 deal. Will definitely go back for a meal soon.Well done and thanks. 😀

Thank Edward G

WHEELCHAIR ACCESS - NO Class act - despite not seeing an obvious access to wheelchairs. Arrived at 19.15 without a reservation and were shown to a table in a small dining room of 5 tables on the 1st floor. Half-an-hour later every table in that dining-room, and indeed throughout the entire restaurant, was taken. We had chosen Mem-Saab because our... More

Very classy Indian restaurant, lucky enough to have visited several times, trendy bar downstairs, excellent venue for couples as opposed to going with a group of friends.

We hired Mem Saab to provide food for our wedding and it was fantastic. Several guests complimented how good the food and service was. We met with Raj at the restaurant on several occasions and the entire process was faultless. Highly recommend Mem Saab.

On arrival at our hotel, Holiday Inn, I asked the Receptionist if she could recommend an Indian Restaurant, she directed us to Mem-Saab and we were not disappointed, it is centrally located near the Cathedral and shopping centre. The restaurant is housed in a listed building with a number of different rooms, wonderful. That was only to start and then... More

The lunch time menu maybe be limited for options but is rather tasty and is well priced. Each dish has its own individual taste from the authentic spices used in the cooking, makes it easy to differentiate between the dishes. The lunch menu came with a choice of a curry and either rice or naan. The curry came in a... More

For the prices charged here, we expected some mind-blowing flavours but personally, I found the food to be bland and more suited to a milder palate. Usually, at fine dining Indian restaurants, you can expect intricate flavours even if you forgo portion size but this wasn't the case on our visit. The interior is quite nice and staff were helpful... More

OK, so was in Leicester on business but had all my family with me (2 adults, 3 children ages 13,12 and 8). Saw the Memsaab which I went to about 20 years ago (when they were in a different building). The place looked smart so phoned to make a 6:30pm booking. I was told that they could only fit me... More
