Description: In Sanskrit Vishal means Great. For a Great Indian dining experience you must visit Vishal. We have been established since the early 80's. Many of our loyal customers have been with us from our days at Church Gate (City Centre). We can boast that we have many loyal customers coming from all over the County and Country regularly. Our regular clientele understands the importance of our unique Indian Tandoori Cuisine. Vishal's style of Indian Cuisine is more than authentic, contemporary or genuine, it is unique. Many Indian restaurants in the UK provide cuisine similar to each other, however this is not the case at Vishal. No other Indian restaurants in Leicester con provide you taste similar to the cuisine at Vishal. The food at Vishal is special. Firstly, the Tandoori (clay oven) food is perhaps one of the best in the country. Please note that a real tandoori oven must be fuelled with Charcoal and not gas. Most restaurants use ready made yoghurt for marinades. We at Vishal make our own yoghurt for marinades. We make our own Paneer for cheese. We mix and grind our own spices for our own mixture of 'Garam Masala'. Our own made dessert Pistachio Kulfi is very popular. At Vishal we try to make sure others do not dictate our ingredients. We are in control of our food. Our Chef's culinary skills with Indian food are very special. We have a very good selection of fresh vegetarian dishes. Our lamb dishes are popular and we only use the best Lamb. Vishal provides a unique Indian Cuisine that has been exactly the same for the last 30 years. We at Vishal keep our ingredients and recipes a secret, and our chef Jewel and his team have sworn to secrecy to make sure Vishal's secrets are kept safe. We are more than happy to welcome you to a Vishal dining experience.

Having eaten in many different Indian restaurants we always return to the Vishal for quality of food, good service and great value. We have been coming to this restaurant for at least 15 years and really want to keep this gem of a place to ourselves. However, the food and service is so good the Vishal deserves recognition.

“fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have been eating in this restaurant for about 10 years. I have to say the food is of a very high quality as is the service and the staff are very friendly. I have taken my friends and family and they have returned due to the high standards this restaurant has to offer. I would recommend this restaurant for a great night out.

“My favourite restaurant”

We've been going to vishals for years. I've tried other Indian restaurants but nowhere compares to vishals. I'd recommend karai lamb.
