Excellent food with generous portions at very good prices. It is just in the wrong area. It was dark when we left and I did not feel particularly comfortable walking to the car.

The very best restaurant I’ve ever had the pleasure to dine at. I’ve visited hundreds of restaurants around the world and was left in awe of this place. Friendliest hosts that made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The food was second to none... I’ll never forget this one and can’t wait to return!! Put it on your bucket list!!!

Pick your time. It was empty at 6:30. Food was great though, good menu. Service was a bit slow considering there were only 2 covers. That could have been down to the waitress think she was new.

Great customer service. Great Location. One of the few restaurants in Leicester that make this cuisine as it should be.

The restaurant was very quiet as I went very early evening 16:30. The food was nice, nothing special, the deserts and mocktails were lovely. I must say the general ambience and feel of the place was really nice, which made for a very pleasant experience. We met the owner and had a long chat with him, he was really friendly and welcoming.

Lovely bright setting. The management made us feel so welcome and took time in explaining both the drinks and food menu, to help us with our choices.
Food was freshly cooked, so was warned that it may take a little longer. We were a party of 10, but all the courses came out at the right time and the service didn’t feel it was longer than normal.
Manager chatted to us through out, to make sure that everything was ok and told us the history of the building.
There’s a lot to choose from the menu. Highly recommended and will return.

This is a lovely restaurant that was made all the more special by its service. I brought my son and 12 family members and friends here for his 18th birthday. He has special needs and ended up having one of his usual meltdowns in the toilet. The staff were amazing. Ahmed was really understanding, calm and professional, and ensured that the rest of our party had a nice time regardless. Thank you so much for being so kind - it’s people like you that make it easier for me and my family and his carers to take him out into the community! It means a lot. The food and ambience was lovely too - we will be back. Jess :)

We chose Thyme for the fact that the location was so pretty and the food was described as Mediterranean, which sounded interesting. The meal was for a graduation celebration. We were made very welcome and the food was delicious, however we were unaware that it was an alcohol free cafe/ bistro, which might affect our choice of using Thyme for a special occasion in the future. However the chef produces amazing food which is cooked to order and would be great for a lunch venue or a casual evening meal. Great cakes!

We loved our experience at Thyme restaurant. We were welcomed and felt like home. It's situated in the park with lovely surroundings to look out to. Really if you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life for a couple of hours this is the place to unwind! Very warm and cosy feeling. We were very well looked after. Service was super! The food my gosh was so authentic a must try for those who want to try something different! We celebrated our 7 years anniversary here and we loved every part of it. Thank you so much for your service today and going out your way to make this experience special! We will be back!
