Six of the best


Under this headline the Leicester Mercury lists six Indian restaurants, including the Cuisine of India, which is also featured in the accompanying article.

As the Mercury says: “Usually the city is the place to go for the best nights out. But that rule doesn’t apply to restaurants – the best of these are scattered throughout the city and county.”
In an interview with Syed he tells the Mercury about ensuring quality by always using fresh, natural ingredients. He also describes his charity initiative to raise £100,000 by 2012.

The Leicester Mercury’s Graham Melton visited Cuisine of India and gave the restaurant a big thumbs up!

Graham asks the question in his report “So does it [the restaurant] match up to its big city brothers? Can it offer food and service you would expect from a high class curry house in the hub of Leicester, as well as the rattling good atmosphere that I have always encountered in the city’s best eateries?”

The report continues: “Well, after our visit there one Friday evening, the answer has to be a resounding “yes”.” Graham awarded almost maximum points – 24 out of 25 and declared the restaurant as “…hard to fault”.

Tim Burke of the popular newspaper ‘Metro’ gave Cuisine of India another resounding endorsement following his recent visit. Awarding the restaurant five stars – rating it as ‘Excellent’, Tim said “Here is a superbly run, plain-dealing restaurant that gives the punters what they want without compromising on quality”

He went on to say that “… the service throughout the night was helpful and charming. The restaurant was full but there was a good number of staff on duty, meaning they were attentive and had time to talk. Moreover, they were friendly and enthusiastic in answering our questions about the food.”
