There can be few places as renowned for superb Indian food in the United Kingdom than Leicester, and it suits that the city with the most people with heritage in the Indian subcontinent per capita would also have one of the most competitive curry house scenes to be found anywhere. Right up with the very best of the Indian restaurants in Leicester city centre is Lilu, where they go beyond the usual curry house fare to provide a menu of regional delicacies from up and down the whole Indian nation. The menu is packed with classics that everyone will recognise, but we’d recommend that you go straight for the house specials: try the Teerangi Puri, a Mumbai street snack done three ways, followed by Goan style chicken breast with garlic and cumin Jersey potatoes and a white wine vindaloo sauce – not one for the faint of heart. There’s plenty more, of course, but to try them all you’ll have to reserve your seat and head to Lilu on Highcross Street for a proper Indian in Leicester city centre.
Dear diners, please note that we offer a 2-course or 3-course fixed menu for you to choose from.
Lilu is amazing. Indian food - full of delicacy, taste and flavour. Every course is a delight. Generous portions. I will recommend it to everyone.
Superb food and atmosphere, friendly people but most of all the food was really good. Will definitely return and enjoy the experience again- really good
