Granby Street hot spot

March 6, 2010

The success of Kayal on Granby Street in Leicester (and in Nottingham too)  has brought a competitor into the market in the shape of Dakshin. Owners had previously run a simple vegetarian takeaway on Belgrave Road, now they’ve taken on Kayal with a pan-South Indian  restaurant located right opposite, above the Polish grocery Wisla. A quick look at the menu shows they are undercutting Kayal and broadening the menu to include Keralan, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh dishes. Rather sadly they couldn’t resist adding a section  they call “Indian” to include curry house standards. I’d be surprised if they match the standards provided over the road, but  it will be interesting to see. Reports welcome.
