The Boy recommended we visited Mirch Masala, which is a vegetarian restaurant that not only offers Indian cuisine but also serves Indo-Chinese, Italian and Mexican (and also some more "British" options for the traditionalist ;-) ). In addition, a lot of it's options are vegan or can be made vegan.
We started with Mogo Pili Pili, which are cassava chips in a spicy sauce, and nachos.
I'd never had cassava before, but it tasted similar to potato, but with a firmer texture. I will be keeping an eye out for it at my local Asian supermarket and at the 'exotic fruit and veg' stall at my local market.
For mains, we ordered a meal each and shared them between the six of us. I went for chana (chickpea) masala and a masala naan.
We also had a curry platter, chilli paneer, vegetable hakka noodles and a magarita pizza- well, why not?

If you're ever in Leicester, you should definitely give this place a go.
