Found in the outskirts of Leicester, Tadka is a contemporary Indian restaurant offering a menu of authentic Punjabi dishes, cooked by a chef with over 25 years of experience. Inspired by the cuisine of North India, the restaurant aims to provide high quality traditional food and top notch service, all in a cosy yet swanky setting. If you're looking for an extra special Indian meal in Leicester, Tadka could well be exactly what you want.

The restaurant's white brick facade is often lit up with brightly coloured lights, making it seem immediately appealing and provide an instant sense of buzz. Once inside, the modern décor makes Tadka feel like a cross between a fashionable modern bar, and a traditional Indian restaurant; more coloured lights illuminate different parts of the room including the bar, while a long banquette lines one whole side of the room.

Tadka's food offering is all about using the finest quality ingredients to create plates of food that genuinely taste like they're from North India. The menu begins with a selection of papadoms and chaats which are the perfect way to whet the appetite. Then follows a series of starters ranging from vegetarian options such as hariyali paneer tikka, and jeera mogu (cassava chips sautéed in cumin butter), to meaty treats like sticky chicken wings, and crispy fried prawns.

Main courses largely come in the form of a number of different curries including Delhi chicken salan, karahi lamb, and a Goan prawn curry, with a selection of biryanis on offer too. There are also plenty of vegetable-based dishes available too including pindi chole and dhaba dal. Alternatively why not go for one of Tadka's delicious platters to share among the whole table. Meanwhile the drinks menu covers plenty of ground, with wine, beer, spirits, and soft drinks all available to accompany your food.
