Curry with a difference, not your standard madras and chicken tikka masala restaurant. Most of the dishes I had never encountered before. There were 6 of us eating and all the dishes were good. Recommended!

I'd say more expensive than most Indian restaurants in Leicester, but one of the best I've been to.
