I have been going to the Empress of India for over a year now and am very impressed. The food is consistently of a high standard and reasonably priced. I specifically recommend the fish shashlik starter and the chicken tikka madras. Great restaurant - well worth a visit.

As with a lot of Indian restaurants this is not fine dining with pretty little plates holding a morsel food. It has a small bar and a lot of headroom. Clean white tablecloths and shiny cutlery. Comfortable chairs too.
The food is of high standard and served at a decent speed without making you feel rushed.
The Friday/Saturday deal is really good value when it's on (check out their web page for details).
We live not too far away but public transport to and from the village it is in is poor. There is a decent sized car park just over the road next to the shops.
We recommend this place to our friends all the time as well regularly visiting ourselves.

Ate here for a birthday meal. Food was good quality, not greasy and very good sized portions and tasted right. The service was excellent, even though they were busy and they were attentive, but did not rush you to finish the meal and were quite happy for you to sit there afterwards and chat. Not badly priced by comparison with other similar restaurants in the area. Would visit again.

We have been going to the empress regularly for nearly 2 years as we live nearby. The food here is absolutely superb. We have been to various Indian restaurants in leicester on a lot of recommendations but this is one of the best . It's not an intimate or cosy place but the food makes up for that. Try the dishes on the specialities rather than the usuals.
