Visited with 3 colleagues last night and was very impressed. The menu doesn't contain much you will be used too do don't go if you aren't willing to be flexible and try something new. We all had something different and were left very impressed. Good size portions of great quality food seasoned fantastically. Would visit again.

One of the best I've been to, and there are none of your normal 'English Indian' dishes so they don't do Chicken Tikka Masala but they have a whole variety of other wonderful dishes on offer. Price wasn't too bad either, would defo go again

Visited restaurant as we happened to be in Leicester on Sunday, we wanted to try "indian" food different from the usual. The front of the restarant is a little unprepossessing but press on in as you will be welcomed by friendly and knowledgeable staff. We handed over the food choices to Amit who proposed a Dosa to share followed by... More

Lovely restaurant, cosy which was nice on a very miserable February afternoon. We had some very tasty authentic food and we tried different things and was not disappointed in anything.

This is a great place to go if you're looking for Indian food that's different from the usual dishes you find in most Indian restaurants/takeaways. I had the lamb curry, which was delicious and the meat was cooked perfectly. My partner had the veggie aubergine curry, which was also very tasty. The portions are very generous - the dosa was...
