Visit this restaurant if you want real Indian food. Dinesh and his team produce a warm welcome and great food every time I go there. I have tried my own selections as well as recommendations from dinesh ad everything is finely cooked with spices and fresh ingredients. So good I am taking the whole company there for our Christmas party.

It's impossible to find fault in this Leicester restaurant. I have now been there 4 times at lunch time and I could easily make it a regular weekly haunt. The host and waiters are attentive without smothering you and service is slick. The variety of dishes is excellent and I have had starters and main courses rating 5 out of... More

First timer at Khyber, Didn't give it a 5 as the mains and oily poppadoms were a let down! Starters were really nice, the chilli paneer is so tasty! Unfortunately the mains (lamb curry on the bone) was really bland and the quality of the lamb was very poor, with skin and a lot of fat on it. Atomosphere was... More

Nice warm welcome we entered the restaurant. We had a chicken tikka starter, which was not bad. Then we went for a traditional curry on the bone. To be honest I was expecting better from a traditional restaurant. Overall it was not to bad but I don't think I will be rushing back.

Khyber still hasn't lost its charm. The service is still good and friendly. Food was excellent as ever. It is always good to revisit a restaurant again and again to find that it is still same or has improved. Chilli Chicken (one of the signature dish) has once again lived up to its reputation. This is a nice little restaurant... More

A really enjoyable visit to the Khyber after some time. The quality of the food did not disappoint, very authentic tasting Indian food with a Gujarati twist. The focus is on quality rather than quantity. The family all enjoyed their choice of dishes. Thanks to Dinesh and the staff for the service. We will definitely be coming back..! Ailesh

We were at Leicester for my child's sports tournament. Which finished at the right time for an early evening meal. Wish we had travelled back home but we decided to eat in the Melton road area as opposed to the slightly more upmarket eateries around London road. We used trip advisor to search for a good place. We chose Khyber... More

More than a year later. Our second visit at the Khyber was delicious as the year before.Loved everything. Starts with the popadoms, the chutneys and a beautiful salad. The Tandoori King Prawns were amazing in combination with the pilau rice and of course the Mongoose beer. Finished with a sweet dessert, the name I forgot. Dinesh gave us a very... More

My husband, parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening in this friendly and atmospheric restaurant. We dined on a selection of wonderful dishes including Masala Fish, Chicken Curry on the bone and Lamb Methi. The owner and staff were very attentive to our needs and made our first visit a memorable one.
