The food is really good and the service is ok. The only problem eating at this Restaurant is it can be cold and whilst they have some plug in heaters but they dont work well enough.

Went here for our Works Christmas do. We had already chosen our meals in advance....the prawns for starter we're nice but very few of them. I had pre ordered turkey escalope for main.....when it arrived it was nothing like an escalope but a dry rolled up bit of turkey (no explanation why it was different to what I'd ordered). The...

We come all the time for special occasions, and we are never disappointed. The food is always fantastic and the service excellent. Tonight they were very busy but we didn't wait for a thing. Cannot recommend it enough, and a huge thank you to Manish and his team for always doing a wonderful job!

This is the second time we've visited the boot room..... Never again! The food was mediocre at best. We drew attention to the disgusting unedible potatoes to the manager who said he'd let the chef know. He returned and completely ignored the fact that we had complained. Shocking disregard to customers. Save your money and go somewhere else!

Came here for Christmas work do and it was absolutely lovely. Very tasty beef as a main that melted jn the mouth. The mushroom starter was full of flavour too. The restaurant had a great atmosphere too with very polite staff. I look forward to returning to try the à la carte menu!

I've visited here twice previously and absolutely loved it - always had fabulous service and exceptional food. I actually thought of it as my favourite Leicester restaurant. Due to that I booked it for my works team Christmas meal for 9 colleagues and myself - and I really regret it now! The food was dreadful, really bland and in some... More

Came here as a Christmas works dinner. Food was bland and small portions . Service mediocre. One of our meals was wrong and the manager argued with us that we were in the wrong. Not great customer service seeing as we were a party of 10 celebrating. We swiftly got the bill and moved on

In Leicester city center but down one of the many little back streets that make up cathedral quarter. It's a little gem offer fine food and an amazing dinning experience. Food was top notch and the restaurant setting was lovely in a former factory, that has been covered in to the boot room. Staff were wonderful providing a high level... More

Super location in city centre. Staff friendly and provided great service. Quality of food was very good indeed. We went on a Tuesday when a CBA menu was available, this was excellent value and included a glass of wine. Would happily eat there again and again! Six of us went and had a variety of meals all of which resulted... More

We had a Travelzoo voucher which gave us a main course, a sweet and a glass of prosecco each for £29.00. As there was no starter included we chose an antipasti sharer for 2 which was very well presented and tasty. For mains we both had fillet medallions in a sauce at a £3.00 supplement each. These were very tender... More
