This is a small restaurant with friendly staff The dishes are a little different, quite spicy and a nice selection of vegetarian dishes However we did not think it was nearly as good as the others we have reviewed in Leicester.

This is our favourite curry house to visit after attending Leicester Tigers games. Try the chilli prawns and the chilli chicken, they are my go-to dishes and I can’t move away from them. Lovely friendly service as well!
