Lilu started as a dream, an ambition for a Gujarati family to one day serve our mother's recipes to our guests. This ambition was reinvigorated with the passing of our inspiration, my mum, in 2012.
We have spent the past 5 years gathering family recipes and pairing them with the professional expertise of Executive Chef JP Singh to construct a menu that is a true reflection of our journey as a foodie family. We now present Indian fine dining with a truly unique twist. Join us on a journey through flavour, and an exploration of authentic Indian regional cuisine.
Since early 2019, we have partnered up with a number of local producers in our sister business, #NotJustACornershop in Wigston. We fully embrace the #SupportLeicesterLocal ethos and try to support as many local businesses through our restaurant as we can.
This means that our main courses all now feature at least one locally sourced element. The food culture of Leicestershire is truly unique and we are proud to be a part of that story.
Our food and service ethos is an homage to mum. She always wanted to please all the guests that visited us, as we now wish to please you.
Welcome to Lilu.
