The food at this Indian restaurant is an excellent example of authentic Gujarati regional cuisine. The variety of dishes and methods of cooking produce dishes that genuinely reflect food eaten in Indian homes. Everything tried here so far has been high quality, and unusually the takeaways cooked and flavoured as skilfully as the meals served in the restaurant. The kitchen cooks to order, which shows in the taste and texture of all the dishes.
The restaurant feels modern and sophisticated, with a clearly defined, comfortable seating area that encourages you to enjoy a relaxing drink before sitting down at your table. The staff are friendly and welcoming without being intrusive.
Winner of Best New Restaurant in the Leicester Curry Awards 2019, SOI is a must for anyone who appreciates tasty, well-cooked and well-presented Indian cuisine.
