Run down , didn't feel welcome in stores. Shame as the ethnic variety in this street is fabulous! Maybe some investment in the area wouldn't go amiss!

Average street. Average street shops. Untidy hope and restaurants. Some restaurants are unhygienic and poorly managed. Too much hype to be Indian bazar.

If you're my vintage, 53, and live in Leicester, you will remember the Belgrave/Melton Road of the early '70's. Run down and falling apart. The first Indian shops opened around that time, and over the last 40 years many have appeared, selling a variety of...More
