About The Wool Pack Bar & Restaurant
About the restaurant
The Wool Pack of Leicester is an Indian restaurant that’s different to the norm, and given that folk in Leicester really know their stuff when it comes to Indian food, it has to be. Indeed, if an Indian restaurant in Leicester doesn’t cut the mustard, it won’t last two minutes. The Wool Pack Bar & Restaurant has been in the game since 2014 and has since been receiving huge critical acclaim thanks to its unique approach to Indian dining. So, expect more grilled dishes than you can shake a stick at, served in a pub-style environment by people who are endlessly passionate about what they do. You’ll find The Wool Pack of Leicester on Catherine Street around Belgrave, where it’s wise to arrive with an advanced reservation.
The Wool Pack is different to other Indian restaurants in Leeds because it feels a bit like a British pub but then serves Indian dishes straight from the grill or griddle. You can see certain dishes cooked right in front of you which then go straight from the searing hot plate to your table, still steaming and absolutely booming with flavour. As you can imagine, ordering yourself a cold pint of quality ale from the bar and then turning around to see sizzling tandoori king prawns being prepared at your table is a very pleasant dining experience indeed.
Begin your meal at The Wool Pack of Leicester with chilli paneer or with the pepper mogo. Both are recommended by the chefs and both carry quite kick. Afterwards, try the sizzling lamb chops or the aforementioned king prawns or, for a real meat hit, the Indian-style mixed grill. That said, if you’d rather a more traditional curry, there’s no better in Belgrave than the Wool Pack chef’s signature jeera lamb, cooked with plenty of cumin. Wherever you’re based in Leicester, head to Catherine Street and get involved with The Wool Pack.
