“FANTASTIC SERVICE AND GREAT FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

This is a fantastic curry house located less than 5 minutes from the train station in Leicester. I first visited this restaurant as there used to be a branch in Manchester (my home town). The service is great and the food extremely tasty. I would recommend any of the saag dishes and also the tandoori king prawn sizzler. The restaurant tries to cater for all of your needs and if there is a dish you would like which is not on the menu they will prepare this for you. I have to mention the excellent service from Bobby, he now knows the order my colleagues and I would like without looking at the menu. If you are looking for decent food and good service you must try here.

“ok food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We went with high expectations and yes it was nice but will I go back probably. The restaurant was not intimate enough and the stairs to bathroom were a little scary.

One of the best Indian restaurant in Leicester. Great food with well balanced spices served in a contemporary way. This is worth the extra money and a detour!
