The food in this place is sensational. I had Chana massala which was amazing and my wife had a chicken dish which she loved. It's rare that a veggie dish is done so well.

Visited late on Saturday evening, had a superb fish and poppadum starter from the specials menu. Main course was good, but not outstanding, should have ordered a special again. My friends lamb curry was excellent, slow cooked to perfection. Good quick service and cost around £25 per head with drinks. Will return

Second time dining here, the first time was over a year ago and the food was really nice as was the atmosphere and service. On my more recent visit however I didn't find the food to be as enjoyable and felt it was overpriced (£48 for 2 mains, 1 naan, a very small keema rice, 2 poppadoms, pickle tray and... More

Having eaten in what was stated as The Beat Indian Restaurant in Europe near my home town of Maidenhead, by pure luck I came across Mem Saab. Mem Saab is far superior to the afore described restaurant. The food is incredible. The staff are 100% dedicated to service. Highly recommend a visit to this place. The views over the walkways...

I booked Memsaab restaurant for a small family baby shower. From the very outset Raj the manager was extremely attentive to our menu requirements, dates, times and seating area. Yet on the actual day his team far exceeded our needs. The team of staff were very friendly, curtious , accomadating with both adults and children alike. Food tasted superb and... More

The restaurant itself is beautiful and in a nice location. The staff seemed like they didn't want to be there, and were pretty unwelcoming (with the exception of the man with dreadlocks, who was a credit to the restaurant). Me and my partner both had cocktails which were very nice. The food itself was okay, but a bit bland and... More

I visited memsaab with a group of friends who regularly go for a curry in Leicester. Whilst the meal itself was absolutely fine the whole evening was ruining by the extreme rudeness of the waiting staff. Specifically: 1. Our group was shushed by a waiter. The table next to ours, which was also a large group, was actually much louder.... More

First of all we was asked to pay £5 each deposit when the table was booked....which i have never heard of! We didn't pay and they continued with our booking regardless. We turned up and felt like we were unwanted inlaws. Eventually they took us to our table. When they discovered that only 1 of us wanted a starter, the... More
