One of the best baltis I've ever had. Pick it exactly how you want it and really nice staff to chat you through your options. BYO too with no corkage. Next time I'm in Leicester, we're definitely heading back to Jamals

Just had dinner here recently. Staff were friendly & food was good. All went well until i asked to pay. I received a handwritten bill and then informed us that they only accepted cash , no cards. So i had to cross a busy junction...in the rain to a Natwest cashpoint. Very odd. Handwritten bills & cash payments is a case of potential tax evasion to me. Wont be going there again.More

Amazing food, pick what type of curry, pick what heat and what extras you want in... Great advise from great staff. No alcohol sold but shops nearby to buy from and they don't charge corkage ....

The food was excellent. The waiters knew their food and could have it adjusted to suit you. They were very friendly. All food freshly cooked. Best Korma I have had. Others with us were also delighted with their choices.

Four off us went for the most excellent curry on Thursday night. The waiter was friendly, and very helpful, and the food plentiful and very tasty. The meat (mutton) curries were tender and the meat was succulent - unlike other restaurants where it is very...tough and chewy. Shame we were too full for Kulfi...More

Waiter did not come out of counter just showed us the table with his finger to seated .

Park in Tescos. Maximum 2 hours. Otherwise park on Narborough Road or one of the side streets off Braunstone Gate. Personally I'd park, go to Tescos, buy some beer (from the fridge near the ready meals) or wine and then... More
