Nearby to the centre of the city of Leicester, not far from the National Space Centre, Vishal is an Indian restaurant with an outstanding reputation. Consistently praised for its excellence, Vishal offers fine Indian food and excellent customer service at a very reasonable price. Proud of its bespoke menu, uniquely crafted and offering a range of dishes unavailable at most other Indian restaurants, it is no surprise that Vishal is so popular.

The restaurant is inviting and friendly, offering a relaxing atmosphere in an informal setting. The colours are warm and evoke a sense of Indian charm, and personal and cultural touches, such as photos and canvasses, give the restaurant a real sense of individuality and personality.

To start your meal, choose from one of the expertly cooked starters, served with a fresh salad and mint sauce. The Hasina is a popular choice, made from pieces of lamb, marinated in yoghurt and herbs and then cooked with onions, tomatoes and peppers in a traditional clay tandoori oven. There is a variety of Vishal specialities, perfect for your main meal, including the uniquely prepared Karai Lamb, prepared with a selection of spices and herbs with chunks of crunchy onions and fresh green peppers in a thick spiced sauce. Seafood lovers should pick from the generous King Prawn menu, offering a variety of curries and kormas, such as the King Prawn Rogan Josh, a classic dish cooked with onions, peppers and fresh coriander – a medium heat dish garnished with fried tomatoes.
