By no means the cheapest, but this is in my opinion the best Indian meal in the county. Great choices, the salad to start is amazing, although the popadums are not the best. Staff Curry is delicious and the vindaloo is a proper vindaloo. Try it.

Been going to the Khyber on and off for years and albeit bit more expensive than your average ( about £20 per head for starters/mains etc) + drinks) is always good and highly recommended. Owned and run by two brothers, the chef and Dinesh at front of house. Dinesh remembers regular customers although he knew who I was a few... More

The food in this restaurant was amazing. Freshly cooked. The decor is basic but the food more than compensates. We had chilli paneer, lamb tikka masala and chicken Kashmir with pilau rice and chapatis. The service was 5 star as so friendly. Will be visiting again.

I love my food hot and they made sure it was, with fresh ingredients not just a load of chilli powder. Very tasty and excellent, sincere and friendly service.

Visit this restaurant if you want real Indian food. Dinesh and his team produce a warm welcome and great food every time I go there. I have tried my own selections as well as recommendations from dinesh ad everything is finely cooked with spices and fresh ingredients. So good I am taking the whole company there for our Christmas party.

It's impossible to find fault in this Leicester restaurant. I have now been there 4 times at lunch time and I could easily make it a regular weekly haunt. The host and waiters are attentive without smothering you and service is slick. The variety of dishes is excellent and I have had starters and main courses rating 5 out of... More

First timer at Khyber, Didn't give it a 5 as the mains and oily poppadoms were a let down! Starters were really nice, the chilli paneer is so tasty! Unfortunately the mains (lamb curry on the bone) was really bland and the quality of the lamb was very poor, with skin and a lot of fat on it. Atomosphere was... More

Nice warm welcome we entered the restaurant. We had a chicken tikka starter, which was not bad. Then we went for a traditional curry on the bone. To be honest I was expecting better from a traditional restaurant. Overall it was not to bad but I don't think I will be rushing back.

Khyber still hasn't lost its charm. The service is still good and friendly. Food was excellent as ever. It is always good to revisit a restaurant again and again to find that it is still same or has improved. Chilli Chicken (one of the signature dish) has once again lived up to its reputation. This is a nice little restaurant... More
