Another of our favourite places to eat out in Leicester is Pamson Grill. We regularly visit Leicester and if we are feeling like having some papri chaat, then our first stop is Pamson Grill! Their papri chaat is one of my favourites from all the places we have visited to date!
Pamson Grill can be found on Highfield Street, Leicester and has a goal of providing the most authentic Pakistani food experience. My husband is from Pakistan, and considering I am not the best cook out there, he is always on the look out for good Pakistani food!
We usually go during the day on a weekend for lunch and each time we have been it has been relatively quiet. However once in the evening we did try to book a table last minute but were told there was a long wait, so it may be better to book in advance for an evening.
One the things that appealed to me on our first visit was the decor. The luxurious chairs with what can be described as knockers on the back, to the luxurious seating area and lights, all made for a great atmosphere and the perfect place for a meal.
Service and Food
Having been a few times we have found some of the staff more friendlier than others, but the food has always been impeccable. However, we did try the kids pasta for Bee once which was a small portion of pasta with some cheese on it and felt it was really not worth the price. Since then we haven’t opted for a kids meal so can’t comment on the other options as she now usually does have something from the main menu.
On this visit our chosen starters were popadoms, papri chaat, fish pakora and vegetable pakora and finally chicken wings. As mentioned before the papri chaat is my favourite…full of flavour and you can easily eat the whole bowl alone….although that would mean you may not have space for much more! They describe their papri chaat as ‘A hot subcontinental appetizer that tantalizes taste buds, prepared with chickpeas, potatoes and spices.’
It certainly does tantalise the tastebuds!
The fish pakoras are always nice and Bee who had ordered the chicken wings was happy with them and finished them.
Although hubby stuck with just starters, I opted to also have some biryani. I went for the Chicken Dum Biryani which I have had previously and always loved. Although it was full of flavour, I found lots of extra big bits this time which I personally was not keen on. I am not entirely sure what they were but I think they were cut pieces of lemon. Unfortunately I couldn’t ask as we had asked for most of the biryani to be packed for home and that is when I found all the bits.
- 4 Popadoms £3.20
- 2 Papri Chaat £8.90
- 2 portions Fish Pakora £11.90
- Vegetable Pakora £3.95
- Chicken Wings £4.45
- 2 portions of chips £2.90
- Chicken Dum Biryani £8.95
- 2 cans of Diet Coke £3.50
I did feel the price of the cans of coke was a bit excessive and noticed that the price of the papri chaat had gone up since we last went. However the quality of the food is excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending Pamson Grill if you are looking for a place in Leicester to eat.
On previous occasions we have tried other dishes and have no complaints about any of them. You can take a look at their menu and prices on the menu on their website: Pamson Grill Menu.

It’s always good to have a favourite place to go to. The pictures of the food alone is already very appetizing. Sometimes, I can close my eyes for the prize as long as the food really fills my taste buds, then it makes the experience worthy.
Yes always good to have a favourite place!
That rice looks so yummy! Thank you for sharing with us!
