Description: In Sanskrit Vishal means Great. For a Great Indian dining experience you must visit Vishal. We have been established since the early 80's. Many of our loyal customers have been with us from our days at Church Gate (City Centre). We can boast that we have many loyal customers coming from all over the County and Country regularly. Our regular clientele understands the importance of our unique Indian Tandoori Cuisine. Vishal's style of Indian Cuisine is more than authentic, contemporary or genuine, it is unique. Many Indian restaurants in the UK provide cuisine similar to each other, however this is not the case at Vishal. No other Indian restaurants in Leicester con provide you taste similar to the cuisine at Vishal. The food at Vishal is special. Firstly, the Tandoori (clay oven) food is perhaps one of the best in the country. Please note that a real tandoori oven must be fuelled with Charcoal and not gas. Most restaurants use ready made yoghurt for marinades. We at Vishal make our own yoghurt for marinades. We make our own Paneer for cheese. We mix and grind our own spices for our own mixture of 'Garam Masala'. Our own made dessert Pistachio Kulfi is very popular. At Vishal we try to make sure others do not dictate our ingredients. We are in control of our food. Our Chef's culinary skills with Indian food are very special. We have a very good selection of fresh vegetarian dishes. Our lamb dishes are popular and we only use the best Lamb. Vishal provides a unique Indian Cuisine that has been exactly the same for the last 30 years. We at Vishal keep our ingredients and recipes a secret, and our chef Jewel and his team have sworn to secrecy to make sure Vishal's secrets are kept safe. We are more than happy to welcome you to a Vishal dining experience.

Absolutely superb! Visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday night and was excellent in every way. Food was outstanding, Tandoori chicken delicious, keema naan outstanding, wish this restaurant was just around the corner (unfortunately I live 70 miles away)!! Was here for a friends birthday: will definitely be returning this side of Christmas!!

“Great food and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the food. It was excellently cooked, especially the fish which came on a sizzler platter. It was great value. We would definitely visit this restaurant again.

“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Have been going to this restuarant for many years and, like all other visits we had an excellent meal (Chicken Tikka and Chicken Korma) at a very reasonable price.

In addition to great food, service is always attentive and friendly.

Probably not the 'fanciest' place. Decor is comfortable without being luxurious, area located in might not be considered the best. However, for great food, beautifully cooked at a reasonable price I have not come across anywhere (in UK or abraod) as consistently good.
