“Diwali Lunch-time Treat”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We went (as a team) for a lunchtime meal to celebrate Diwali. We all thoroughly enjoyed the the lunchtime fayre. Service was good and attentive. The food was excellent quality and all well presented. Drinks were slightly overpriced.

We will return!

“Great Experience”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I was recently treated to an evening at Memsaab by a very good friend, who booked us in for a cookery lesson and dinner. Fantastic experience, the cookery lesson was brilliant, we made 4 dishes in under an hour, which were packaged up for us to take home. Dinner was fantastic, both of us had starters which were substantial, main courses looked small but were very filling. Atmosphere was good, though started to get very busy and a bit noisy later on. Non alcoholic cocktails were delicious, though I thought £3.50 was a little steep for a bottle of water! Overall, excellent food and a nice relaxing dining experience.

“A nice break from shopping in Highcross Shopping Centre”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

There are plenty of restaurants attached to the Highcross Shopping Centre in Leicester. However, this is probably the best. It's an upscale Indian restaurant (run by Bengalis), in a city full of Indian restaurants, so it had better be good to compete.

Unlike most of its competitors, Mem Saab is marketing itself as at the top of the quality range, and has prices to match (Starters ~£5. Mains ~£10). The decor is very modern and pleasant and the staff are exceptionally welcoming and attentive. Service is fast and professional. We didn't have a reservation, but as we arrived early in the evening this didn't turn out to be a problem.

The food is of an excellent quality and will be prepared to your preference in terms of spiciness. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well as meat dishes, and some exotic fare too like crocodile meat and kangaroo meat dishes! The food is apparently "Halal" which is a pro for some and a con for others. Most will not care either way, however.

They will add a discretionary 10% service charge to the bill, which was fine by me as I didn't then feel obligated to leave a tip on top.

Overall - highly recommended and I expect to visit again.

“Christmas Party”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

we were provided with a wonderful evening for our work christmas party– the food was out of this world, your restaurant is beautiful and the pianist and the magician were fabulous. Everyone in our group agreed that the evening was a complete success and we will definitely be returning in the future.

Massive compliments and thanks to the chef for wonderful food and ther staff for being so welcoming and attentive.

Would happily recommend to everyone have a night out here and be impressed.
