Absolutely sensational. The service and food here is on a whole new level that I've not found anywhere even close in Leicester. You are made to feel like royalty the moment you walk through the door right through to when you leave. A wonderful, relaxed...fine dining experience with food that's packed with passion. Absolutely fabulous value for money.More

A real gem. We were looking for somewhere special for a ‘friends reunion’ and this delivered in every aspect. We had the tasting menu and it was delicious. Full of flavour and not too spicy (I’m sure they could adjust this for different tastes). The...staff were all exceptionally friendly and explained all the courses. All agreed it was the best Indian meal we had ever had (and we are all very well travelled).More

Pratik is a wonderful host and very passionate about his food. It shows in each dish and his enthusiasm is infectious. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu (you need to email in advance) and it was exceptional. We are foodies and have had...lots of tasting menus in Michelin star restaurants and this was certainly up there. The amount of food is the most we’ve ever had for a tasting menu, do not eat at all the day you go!! It was 3 hours, we opted for a 6pm sitting. It’s a very relaxed setting and the waiter (I didn’t get his name) was also lovely and very friendly. We are very much looking forward to returning!More

It’s not the first time we’ve visited Lilu and that’s because it is SO good. They have outstanding, fresh, tasty food and wonderful service from all the staff who make you feel welcome as soon as you step inside. Two courses are £35 or three...for £39. Book yourself in to make sure you get a table. They also offer tasting menus and other options so it’s worth checking out their website. We had the soft shell crab and salmon with mango and mint, the chicken tikka and lamb cutlets kebabs with a blue cheese naan, a medium chicken dish with a tasty sweet sauce and potatoes, duck with a medium spiced sauce with rice and various exciting sides, we also had three of the Lilu special naans and the papadums with an assortment of chutneys. To finish we had the chocolate ganache dessert which was so tasty. This place is a definite must try in Leicester! You will not regret it.More

Pratik always greets us with the warmest of welcomes no matter how long it’s been since our last visit. The food it always delicious and varied allowing you to get a real taste of some wonderful dishes that you might not have typically come across...at another Indian restaurant. Dining is casual yet refined and the pace is such that you are not made to feel rushed and can relax and enjoy every mouthful. Always a treat and well worth a visit if you’ve not tried the place!More

This place is only open on Friday & Saturday night but is a really nice restaurant in the town. I believe they only do the tasting menu which was superb although pricey at £59 ph. But despite that, it was really good. Each course was...introduced to us by the owner.More

I almost don't want to give Lilu more praise as getting a table is tough already but for all the right reasons. From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel exceptionally welcome. The staff were all very knowledgable and attentive without making you...feel watched. The food arrived at a relaxed pace and was nothing short of sensational. This is most definitely not your usual indian restaurant. Both the food and service live up to it's Fine Dining strap line but in a friendly and informal setting. Absolutely incredible value for money, can't wait to return.More

The show was filmed last year and we trialled an A la carte menu for a month. This did not work as our most popular dishes were not on that menu. We then sat down with the Chefs and created a menu that had what our guests... More
