Leo's gives you good 'Value for Money' Nov 26, 2008
Great draught beer - perfect in the hot afternoons - served with free cheeselings / peanuts too! They have a huge menu with everything from traditional Indian to Chinese and what-not! They also serve all varieties of fruit juices for the teetotallers.
I personally like the Chicken 3-in-one which is a huge plate with a plate of chicken-rice, a plate of chicken-noodles and 2 chicken-wings in honey-roasted sauce - its enough food for three moderate eaters OR two very-hungry-persons :) The Chicken Tikka is a good bet too. So are all the soups that you wouldnt mind sipping on in the evenings before a meal.
Hmmmm - well - this has been one of my favorite hangouts since the mid 90s - and I'd always eat here after a nite out at the movies. A typical dinner-for-two with beer costs between Rs.300 to Rs.500 (About €8 / $10). If you want to try their cocktails, you could also go upstairs where they have a cocktail bar - as well as the normal menu from downstairs.
Trivia: It is featured in the Duran Duran video 'Hungry like the Wolf'
