A trip to Lilu is always guaranteed to be a treat! The owner, Pratik, is a foodie perfectionist and is always making sure his customers have an enjoyable and tasty experience. I have been several times over the past 6 months and for now have...More

Another fantastic dining experience at Lilu. This time I took my mother along, who (being both Indian and a mother) is perhaps the hardest of critics to please when it comes to Indian cuisine. She was blown away with the innovative take on Indian cooking...More

Multiple review of the same place are a rarity from me - but we keep going back to Lilu. Why.... The food - always excellent, a fusion of Indian and European, served as fine dining. The atmosphere - always pleasant, it's not the largest restaurant...More

Had my first visit to Lilu in April and have since been a further three times, never to be let down by the standard of both the food and the excellent staff and management. If you want real Indian fine dining in a lovely atmosphere,...More

We were seated promptly and without a booking, and based upon the majority of Trip Advisor reviews were looking forward to our meal. We were given one or two 'freebies' but the food was not really that good. The Kingfisher beer was nice to see...More

Spending a weekend in Leicester we decided we had to have an Indian and selected Lilu because of the reviews others have posted and its proximity to our hotel. The meal was superb. The soft shell crab and tiger prawn starters were excellent. My wife...More

I would like to know EXACTLY where this restaurant is: I have been searching on Unit R4, High Cross Lane, since that is the address given. There is no High Cross LANE on the map. I am told that it is near John Lewis: the location of that on your and Cafe Rouge maps isn't clear either. If the Black, Pointed Disc shows it, please could this be confirmed with the name when one hovers the mouse over it? I am invited there for a Mothering Sunday Lunch tomorrow, having travelled 60 miles: precision of destination would help this traveller, please.

Hi, I think but you have to pre-order your meal at least a day in advance.

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!
