What our customers and the media think of us....

six of the best 25/2 Under this headline the Leicester Mercury lists six Indian restaurants, including Little India, and points out that not all good restaurants are in the city.
As the Mercury says: "Usually the city is the place to go for the best nights out. But that rule doesn't apply to restaurants - the best of these are scattered throughout the city and county."

Simply the Best!

ian wishartAs part of National Curry Week, the Leicester Mercury (26/11) included Little India in a quest by their food reviewer Ian Wishart to find the best Rogan Josh in the county. Over two weeks Ian visited six restaurants and at the end awarded Little India full marks, 5 out of 5 – the best score of the six restaurants!
Little India was up against some stiff opposition but Ian was really impressed by the strong ginger and garlic flavours, the excellent service and low cost. He also liked the way the restaurant had been “beautifully transformed” from a traditional pub.
Other restaurants in the quest were: Mem Saab in Highcross (4/5), Shimla Pinks, London Road (4/5), Apurba, Melton Mowbray (2/5), Curry Pot, Belgrave Road (3/5) and Queens Tandoori, Queens Road (3/5)

Amongst other good reviews of the restaurant are these:
start ratingThe Mercury's Gary Mitchell and his girlfriend visited in March 2008 and commented "'s clear to see why anyone I speak to about Little India heaps praise on it. The food is among the best Asian cuisine I've had and it's a comfortable, pleasant place to eat.
The service is sleek and professional without being too fussy. The waiters know what they're talking about and are happy to share some banter with the customers. Even though the place was heaving, one of them thought to open the door for us as we went back out into the cold and windy night." He awarded 22 out of 25 stars.
mercury star rating
In 2005, the year we won the Restaurant of the year award, Tom Mack visited and was even more glowing in his report. Overall, he wrote "...a warm environment, warm welcome and warm, delicious food." and awarded 24 out of 25 stars.
