    Service and food was amazing! A totally different take on a Saturday night curry. Fine dining at its best!

    It was our very first visit to Lilu... we had a slight hiccup with the timings, but the Manager assured us that everything was fine, and my husband had a great birthday meal.
    They even organised a cake for my husband.
    Food was amazing, couldn't fault it.
    Service first class.

We say…

Lilu is a hidden gem in the heart of Leicester. This Indian fine dining fusion restaurant is situated on the bustling Highcross Street in Leicester city centre, so it's ideal if you fancy a treat day of shopping in the Highcross shopping centre, and want somewhere easy and convenient yet also delicious to enjoy a meal.

This unique establishment is in a great spot, whether you're using it to start your night off before heading to a nearby bar, or if you want to dine on an extra-special meal outside of work, Lilu is the place to go.

Lilu is clean, elegant and sophisticated inside, with chic white tables and monochrome furniture giving an impression of a restaurant that isn't your typical curry house. Lilu, which was featured in the Taste of Leicestershire and Rutland 2014 cookbook, is a suitable venue for any kind of special occasion, such as work parties or anniversary dinners, but is also great for a relaxed, weekday treat, as the staff make one feel welcome whether you're regular or new diner. 

The menu is comprised of special family recipes that have been gathered for years and combined with professional expertise leading to the construction of an incredible collection of Indian dishes that make up today's menu. To start, try the signature crab, a mild starter made of crispy soft-shell crab served with Granny Smith apples, mix leaf salad and mango and mint sauce. Next, you can try Dumpukht Bririyani, made with either lamb or vegetables, a dish with fragrantly spiced aromatic basmati rice in mint and saffron rose water, served with an onion and cucumber raita. There's also plenty to choose from if you fancy a traditional Rogan Josh or Tikka Curry, and they're cooked to perfection, so don't be afraid to stick to the classics if you can't choose!

With a range of exciting and vibrant Indian dishes as well as top-rated service, you won't regret visiting Lilu restaurant in the city centre. Please note, for groups of 24+, you can have exclusive use of the restaurant! Make sure to book at peak times, as this cosy restaurant is very popular.
