Oct '14 I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our meal at your restaurant this evening.
We sat at the large round table at the bar end of the restaurant and it was my husband's birthday. All staff were very attentive, polite and efficient and we were pleasantly surprised when balloons and a birthday cake turned up at the end of the meal..and then complimentary drinks and sweets/chocolates!

The food was delicious from start to finish and the children enjoyed it all too as even the mild dishes were tasty. Thank you again for making our evening really enjoyable and special too.

Thank you for all the money you helped to raise for the Neville school in Ghana - £1,500; without you this would not have been possible.

Jan '12 We dined at your excellent restaurant last night. It was my girlfriends birthday and we were made to feel very welcome. She loved the balloons and the cake which we didn't expect but were very grateful for. Your staff are truly exceptional - the service is first class without being overbearing. The food is of an excellent standard and I just wanted to say thank you to you all. I'm looking forward to a return visit.
Ian and Lisa.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you following our visit to the 'Cuisine of India' last night.  
Our meal was for boyfriend's birthday and I'd asked whilst booking if there was anything that could be done to make it special for him. I was so surprised and delighted when we arrived to see the balloons and confetti on the table, and then by the big birthday cake at the end of the meal (accompanied by the singing waiters!) It was fantastic, and made the meal all the more special.
On top of this was the usual faultless service (no mean feat when there's 10 of you in a party!) and amazing food.  
I've always recommended 'Cuisine of India' to friends, and now I shall be doing even more so!
Karen S, Jan'12
email Apr '11: Been twice to this restaurant, received good service and excellent food. Would recommend it.

On behalf of everyone at St John Fisher School, Shenley Road, Wigston, I would like to say thank you so very much for the meal voucher you recently donated to help towards our fundraising event.
Our race night raised a grand sum of £1154 ! None of this could have been achieved without the help of people like yourselves.
A group of us actually came to your restaurant after the event and enjoyed a lovely meal too !!
Thank you once again Julie Stanley PTA St John Fisher, Wigston

south leicester college Fantastic Night Out
I am writing to express my thanks for a great night out on Tuesday!
I was very impressed with the way you managed to serve a large party of 30 people so efficiently, and I know everyone was extremely pleased with their meals! The customer service was excellent and you really looked after us well.
Thank you also for the extra touches you put in place, including the balloons, banners and cake you made especially for our event - such a lovely addition to the night!
The restaurant is a fantastic venue for a night out with work colleagues and we will certainly be back again! Danielle, 10 Nov 2009
Thank you all for making our daughter's 18th Birthday a special celebration, on Saturday 15th August 2009.
You made us feel very welcome, the food was excellent and considering there were a large number of us we all got our food together which was brilliant.
The balloons, the sash's down the middle of the table, the cake, and the complementary drinks at the end of the meal just all added that special touch, and of course the photograph!
Thank you all again and look forward to seeing you very soon! Mark & Rachel, Oadby
email Nov '08 My wife Haley and I have just had a takeaway from Cuisine of India and we both feel that it was the best Indian meal either of us has ever had. 100% !!! It was absolutely delicious. Duck chilli, chicken jeera, garlic naan, mixed grill, prawn pilao, paneer shashlick, peshwari naan.
It was simply fantastic cooking; hot and spicy but I could taste everything. The flavour of everthing came through and nothing was overwhelmed by chilli! I am a convert to Cuisine of India - utterly, utterly beautiful food. The chef is a genius. Thank you so much for my most enjoyable meal for a long, long time. You have blown away all other indian restaurants as far as we're concerned.
Richard and Haley, Wigston.
email 31 Aug '08: After returning to my home town after many years away on business, what a lovely surprise to find a restaurant in place of the Meadowbank pub. While discussing Cuisine with friends it was highly recommended and after a quick phone call to a colleague we were booked in.
We were greeted by polite and courteous staff and a good selection of beers, wines and spirits. The meal was indeed exciting, delicious and authentic - quite breath taking in fact. I shall without doubt be recommending yourselves to friends, social and business alike. Many thanks for a first class, enjoyable and very pleasant evening. My compliments to your chef and staff who are a great credit to you. - Nick L.
Received by email, Apr 08: I would just like to thank you for a wonderful evening on Friday night. I was with [a large] party and we had a great time. Food was excellent, together with the service, attention to detail, restaurant setting and decor. I have to say considering there were 20 of us you did a fantastic job of getting all the food out together. This was my first visit and it certainly won't be my last. I will be recommending the cuisine of India to all my friends. Well Done!
P.S The magician was a nice touch!
- Clare S
The following letter to the features desk of the Leicester Mercury was published on February 28 2008
"Based on your review of the Cuisine of India I decided to treat a business party of four to an evening meal there. What a delight. The meal served was one of the tastiest meals I have eaten within any Indian restaurant in any county.
I would like to add that the manager, Mr Syed Rahman was the best host we could have asked for and the delightful and happy staff made the experience even more enjoyable. It was such a relaxing experience with us sitting in the bar area and choosing from such a vast and what seemed to be localised menu, whilst enjoying a bottle of wine or two, then being guided through to our tables where our feast awaited.
All three courses went down well with all four party members. We all opted for different dishes and had to agree to disagree that we all chose the best dish.
We then went back through to the bar area and continued on with our heated debate on whose main course was the best. I still say my lamb naga from the specials menu was the winner, hands down. What I was surprised to see was your four-star rating for service. I would like this reassessed and put up to the five stars it thoroughly deserved. We waited about 25 minutes for our mains, as all dishes were different. I don't consider this a long wait at all. For such a vast menu, this was rather quick. I have waited far longer than that for a very sub standard meal in a very sub standard restaurant.
Overall I commend the Mercury for guiding me to try this unique dining style and I shall now become a regular visitor; even though I live on the opposite side of the city."
