The Indian Queen (Leicester)

Review: Indian Queen (Leicester)

The Indian Queen, is my father-in-laws local. Its basically a working men's club with a great Indian grill restaurant situated upstairs.  The bar and eating area are always busy when we visit. Tables of guys eating, drinking and watching football.

The mixed grill sizzlers are a great way to try a selection of the grilled/ tandoor cooked meats. The Indian Queen serves simple home style food cooked well.

We opted for a takeaway on Friday night, as we were watching football on TV.

We ordered;

The baby chicken, cooked in the tandoor. The charred taste from the tandoor is one of the best flavours




Chicken wings, again cooked in the tandoor.


Shell on prawns, I don't know what goes into these but its pure magic. Its an "Indo-Chinese" flavour. I am sure there is soy sauce, garlic, ginger, onions and tamarind in there. I will just have to ask for the recipe I think! 



Tandoori lamb chops.               

We also ordered a lamb curry and naans. The best way to enjoy the dishes is mix and match them, garnish with side salad with the simple s and crack open an ice cold beer.


This place is a real hidden gem.
