I have been going to Bilas for a number of years now and can honestly say it is not your usual local indian restaurant. Having had many an enjoyable night, I have decided to write a review so other people can enjoy the same experience I do on a regular basis.
Food: Going to an indian restaurant usually means walking out with a gut-full of grease. Many a time have I taken a trip to the gents to expel litres of liquid that could fuel my car to Leicester and back. In fact, some say that the threat of non-renewable fuel is a myth as texan oil magnates are considering tapping the bellies of football louts who eat at their local 'Taj Mahal'. Bilas would drive these oil magnates crazy. Somehow (don't ask me how) they manage to keep the food satisfying without finding the need to coat onion bhajis in barrels of oil.
The food always tastes fresh and I know why. My daughter works in the local supermarket and sees the manager buying fresh produce on a daily basis rather than stocking up a weeks worth. Great idea as it pays off! In fact, you may be surprised to hear that Mo Farah buys his curry from here. There is a picture on the wall - endorsement!
Service: The staff at Bilas epitomise true customer service. They are all smart and well presented - as well as polite. Most indian restaurants will mess up and order, Bilas won't. The manager is excellent and always asks how I am and if my family is well. He makes a habit of knowing me personally.
Price: Do a comparison. Not much is cheaper.
Entertainment: This is the wow factor that distinguishes Bilas from it's feeble competition. The owner seems to have handed the reins over to his son who is bringing a fresh outlook to the place. He is a young chubby fellow who seems to have a million ideas. I recently went to a night at Bilas where they had a Bengali Elvis. How many times will you see that in your life?! As mentioned above, he is also visible and makes the effort to have a conversation. Full credit to him and his father for being such excellent hosts.
Overall: Bilas is an excellent venue and should be experienced by everybody in the area. It's aim isn't to change the world. It's just to bring fresh indian food to it's customers with a side order of a smile. 10/10. Please keep up the good work.
