The restaurant itself is beautiful and in a nice location. The staff seemed like they didn't want to be there, and were pretty unwelcoming (with the exception of the man with dreadlocks, who was a credit to the restaurant). Me and my partner both had cocktails which were very nice. The food itself was okay, but a bit bland and... More

We visit the restaurant last night with big group of friends. The food was quiet nice but the staff was extremely rude-the waitress told us to be quieter (he actually shush us) I don't think we were that laud people next to us (also big group) was much louder and then when my friend ask the waitress if she can...

I visited memsaab with a group of friends who regularly go for a curry in Leicester. Whilst the meal itself was absolutely fine the whole evening was ruining by the extreme rudeness of the waiting staff. Specifically: 1. Our group was shushed by a waiter. The table next to ours, which was also a large group, was actually much louder.... More

First of all we was asked to pay £5 each deposit when the table was booked....which i have never heard of! We didn't pay and they continued with our booking regardless. We turned up and felt like we were unwanted inlaws. Eventually they took us to our table. When they discovered that only 1 of us wanted a starter, the... More

Went for a meal with a number of friends. I never been here previously and was very pleased we chose this restaurant. The staff were very attentive and helpful with advise on what to choose from the menu. Food choice was good and was delivered to our table hot and well cooked. Prices were resonable but be aware they do... More

When deciding on a venue to host a family dinner for 40 guests, choosing Mem-Saab was a decision I am happy to report was a good experience. From the moment Raj (restaurant owner/event organiser) made contact I was filled with confidence that my mothers special day was going to be one that was hassle free. Raj showed flexibility in all...

The service was good, but with only 2 tables in the restaurant I expected no less. The popadoms, chutney and peshwari naan were really very good. My Rogan Josh was pretty average. Could have had a bit more warmth. Overall a very nice experience.

Well anyone who has read my reviews knows I'm partial to an Indian, the restaurant is easy to find in an area of Leicester with plenty of restaurants. The decoy is very contemporary and staff are welcoming. We did not have starters, partly because at an average price of £6-7:00 we felt that was a little much. My oldest does... More

Haven't been here for years but wasn't disappointed generally by the standard of the food and service. Although there were problems with some of the mains they did their best to put things right. My two friends both had a monkfish biriani which turned out to be incredibly dry. This didn't result in any reduction in the bill so didn't... More
