Leicester Restaurants

It’s famous for its red cheese, but Leicester has a lot of other vibrant attractions. Visitors flock to the town to experience the space theatre at the National Space Centre, and the centre is a great shopping destination. Leicester is one of the UK’s most cosmopolitan towns, and as a result, restaurants in Leicester represent a dazzling range of world cuisines.

Leicester restaurants tend towards the relaxed and informal. Colourworks is one such chilled destination that also maintains an eminently stylish look. Muted greys & burgundies, alongside dark wood furnishings and feature wallpaper create an inviting atmosphere. In the warmer months, enjoy al fresco dining on Colourworks’ roof terrace. Food-wise, a creative range of pasta dishes sits side by side with modern European mains. Vegetarians are well catered for, with a number of options on the menu.

For aromatic Indian flavours, head to the highly rated Khyber Tandoori. It’s based in North Leicester, on Melton Road. You’ll be sure of a warm welcome at this family-run eatery, and the menus include a truly impressive range of Indian dishes to suit all tastes. Along with familiar favourites, the Khyber Tandoori chefs present a range of their own signature dishes.
