We say…

The Empress of India is nestled in the small village of Asfordby, near Melton Mowbray. It offers a taste of India, and has firmly established itself as a top destination for those seeking first-class Indian food. It’s ideal for anyone living locally if you want to try out something new, and can also be easily reached from all over Leicestershire thanks to Asfordby’s proximity to the A607 and Nottingham Road, the A606.

The Empress of India is ideally designed for a special meal out, as the beautifully folded napkins, fresh tablecloths and fresh flowers on the tables create an impression of tranquil elegance. Sit at one of the smaller, more intimate tables to the side of the restaurant, or bring along a big group and take advantage of the larger party tables in the centre of the space. The team are always happy to cater for special occasions, so make it top of your list if you’re planning a bigger event.

The menu at the Empress of India is inspired by a wide range of dishes from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and is packed with favourites as well as new, innovative specialities. We recommend sampling some of your table’s dishes and ordering plenty of choice, as you won’t want to miss out on this award-winning menu. When the restaurant was newly opened the dishes earned them the title of ‘Best Indian Restaurant in the Region’, and the range and quality of the dishes continue to amaze newcomers and keep regulars coming back time and time again. The Empress of India sets itself apart by only using fresh ingredients and cooking everything on the menu to order. Try the tender lamb samosa to start, or opt for a sweet dish with a kick with the chilli honey paneer. Next, treat yourself to a sizzling tandoori mixed grill and sample a bit of everything the restaurant has to offer, or go for the Empress of India’s take on classic curries.

The Empress of India in Asfordby is an award-winning favourite in Leicestershire, so pop by and see why it’s had such a warm reception. Don’t forget to book, as peak times can be busy at this one of a kind Indian restaurant.
