A really enjoyable visit to the Khyber after some time. The quality of the food did not disappoint, very authentic tasting Indian food with a Gujarati twist. The focus is on quality rather than quantity. The family all enjoyed their choice of dishes. Thanks to Dinesh and the staff for the service. We will definitely be coming back..! Ailesh

We were at Leicester for my child's sports tournament. Which finished at the right time for an early evening meal. Wish we had travelled back home but we decided to eat in the Melton road area as opposed to the slightly more upmarket eateries around London road. We used trip advisor to search for a good place. We chose Khyber... More

More than a year later. Our second visit at the Khyber was delicious as the year before.Loved everything. Starts with the popadoms, the chutneys and a beautiful salad. The Tandoori King Prawns were amazing in combination with the pilau rice and of course the Mongoose beer. Finished with a sweet dessert, the name I forgot. Dinesh gave us a very... More

My husband, parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening in this friendly and atmospheric restaurant. We dined on a selection of wonderful dishes including Masala Fish, Chicken Curry on the bone and Lamb Methi. The owner and staff were very attentive to our needs and made our first visit a memorable one.

Friendly service good ambience and superb food as always. We had the lamb chops , barbecued chicken and a delicious fish starter, followed by various curries, rice and nan read. All freshly cooked top quality food. It was busier than our last 2 visits so service was slower but we were relaxing with friends so not in a hurry. Our... More

We were at a bit of a loss as to where to eat after a meeting at work and The Khyber is a few doors away, so we went there. Great welcom, nice table and very prompt, courteous and informed service. The food came quickly , but not so quickly that you worry about reheating rather than fresh cooked. The... More

The food sometimes can be really good and some times really bad. But every time we go there it seems more expensive than before

The first curry I tried was at the Khyber over 20 years ago and I've has many more since. The food there is wonderful, good ideas to try are the pakoras, chilli chicken (ok not Indian but very good) and the curry masala.

Haven’t been to the Khyber for a long time and went with a friend after a midweek Leicester City game which finished late. The restaurant was still serving at 10.45pm and we had poppadums and a main course with veg side dish. Food and service excellent as it always was so it was great to be back!

Dined here after hearing several people rating it. Was extremely disappointed. The food was bland and unseasoned. The portions are miserly and no way worth the price you pay. The staff were rude and unhelpful. When told the food had no taste they blamed us for having no sense of taste! Won't be going here again!
