Amazing food, excellent service, best way I would describe it is Indian fine dining but with a twist! Definitely recommended.

Chose to eat a tasting meal with a group instead of ordering from the menu, and was delighted with the result. A series of flavour-filled dishes were produced, preceded by an unexpected "amuse-bouche" taste bomb! Thoroughtly enjoyed the experience and hope to be back.

What a great place. Your memorable evening begins at the front door with a smile and warm welcome. The dining options are carefully explained but then what do you choose. We had a prawn starter, the soft shelled crab starter, the duck and the lamb....More

Another review because we continue to visit. Birthday meal, for myself and my daughter, with my wife. The menu has been tweaked, rather than overhauled recently and the changes are subtle but tasty. This has always been a fine dining restaurant so the changes are...More

The show was filmed last year and we trialled an A la carte menu for a month. This did not work as our most popular dishes were not on that menu. We then sat down with the Chefs and created a menu that had what our guests... More

Description
Lilu is an Indian Fine Dining restaurant. When the restaurant was first envisaged we realised that we had to be different from our contemporaries. We have an Indian fusion menu where you will find such culinary delights as Ostrich, Lamb Shank and Red Snapper. However, if you would like a traditional curry then our award winning chef is pretty good at those too!
