Changing the culinary face of Leicester.



Imagine a place where a rich heritage meets artistic expression. And the predictable is transformed into the simply remarkable. Where flavours true to India enrich the mind, body and soul. Unexpected spicing combinations spark a smile in the mind. And a passion for quality is met with a devotion to ethical sourcing. A sensational venue set over two floors. Where vibrant colours ripple across rooms. Mixologists meet cocktail shakers. Each room tells a story and every visit instils a memory.

Inspired by history and culture, using traditional cooking techniques paired with contemporary plating, Tandem promises a multi-sensory feast. Indian food is as varied as it is delicious and we embrace the diversity of traditional India by exploring the culinary history and foreign influences from across the South West regions, whilst retaining the true purpose of Indian food – to nourish the body and mind.

We create authentic dishes using a variety of fresh and sustainably sourced ingredients, spices and unique cooking methods to develop truly unique tastes and tantalising flavours.

The vibrant interior takes inspiration from Goan and Portuguese influences and each of the five rooms, set across two stories, create a distinctive ambiance that is unique to the Tandem experience.

Tandem. It’s where Leicester meets.


Dear Customers,

We were so excited to launch our new menu just a few weeks ago where we had such an overwhelming positive response especially for our Sunday lunchtime menus.

All of that without a shadow of a doubt now seems so insignificant and unimportant in view of what is happening in the United Kingdom and the rest of the world.

The health and wellbeing of our customers as well as our valued staff is our priority and comes first with all other business considerations being a very distant second. We have always been committed to ensuring the highest standards of hygiene within the restaurant, but sadly for the time being there is no better way in which we guarantee this standard unless we close temporarily. We have carefully monitored government and clinical advice on this, and we cannot see any other option present.

We are hugely grateful to all our customers for their support in light of the cancellation of so many bookings, especially for Mother’s Day Weekend. We do hope that you realise that we have only taken this decision so that we can do our part in helping to slow down the spread of the virus and illness caused by Covid-19 and so that the global battle against this is won.

We look forward to seeing you again as soon as possible. Until then please keep your family, friends and loved ones safe, look after one another.

With best wishes,
The Tandem Team.
