About Taste Restaurant at Leicester College

Our restaurant which has been highly commended by the AA is run by the Hospitality and Catering students who are committed to providing every customer with a unique dining experience. Our ethos is to ensure our customers receive the highest level of service whilst enjoying the quality of our food that has been cooked using locally sourced ingredients where possible.
Taste restaurant customers are able to follow our students on their journey into the catering industry and taste for themselves how their culinary and service develop throughout the year. As we are a training environment we offer real value for money.
We offer a range of menus that include afternoon tea, lunch and dinner together

The Taste team go above and beyond expectations to ensure you will want to come back time and time again.
Whether you are looking for a simple lunch, afternoon tea, an impressive meeting venue, private dining venue or an exciting table d’hote dinner, Taste restaurant can offer you a new experience in dining.
Thankyou so much for providing such a great venue and superb buffet for our event. Everybody who attended was really impressed with the high quality of the service.
I can think of no better way to enjoy a three course lunch than at Leicester college. Excellence food and service. Where else in Leicester can you enjoy a meal with waiter service and young staff who obviously thoroughly enjoy what they are doing.
Super value, tasty food. Excellent all round!
Always love eating here. Best service in Leicester,, food always the best.
The front of house team serving us were extremely polite,tentative and friendly througout our time there. Food was delicious and well presented. Taste has never let our charity down whenever we have our events here. Well Done to all who made our day special yesterday. Thank you to Andrea, Nicky & students.
My daughter and I enjoyed the meal very much, definitely will want to come again.
Unfortunately the standard of service was not as a good this time. The waiters did not have their badgers on, Faz or Faiz who was our waiter could do with a few pointers on service I do not think that he had the use of a 3 level student as on previous occasions there has been supervision. I am sure that with a few more pointers he will do well. We did ask Faz what the amuse bouche was and he replied" I don't know". On other occasions the waiter/waitress have said "I will just go and ask someone who will be able to help me", I am sure this will come with experience The food was good, but the chicken was a bit dry.
An interesting lunchtime menu, well presented, with excellent service.
Always amusing to watch the trainee staff.
Our Waiter (Jamie) was somewhat nervous and shy, but did a good job. Hope his confidence grows with experience.
Our first experience at Taste which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were treated to a tasty lunch with good quality of food and excellent service . We will definitely be back again and have already recommended you to friends and family. Well done to all the students particularly Maddy who looked after us
The meal was lovely on Wednesday and our server Joshua was lovely, but just one point to pick up if he could smile I know it is nerve racking, but a smile goes a long way. P.S. My chicken dish was a little bit dry.
Again our party of 5 had an amazing meal at the restaurant. Sevice Food and Atmosphere were all spot on. Many thanks too the students and staff. Looking forward to our next visit
I appreciate that the young waiters are learning their trade and a little nervous but they tried very hard!
Very early in the year to offer an assessment.
Apparently, it was a first day for some of the serving staff, so they must be complimented on their professionalism.
Served by Patrick, who was more confident than would be expected so early in the term. All students seemed to be working very efficiently. Always a good atmosphere. Comments overheard as we left were very complimentary.
We at Inspire, have been regular visitors to the Taste Restaurant for the past 11 years. The food, atmosphere, service and value for money are just part of the fantastic nights that we have had. I can highly recommend it to you.
Value for money
the meal at lunchtime on Wednesday 9th October was absolutely wonderful and our waiter Paul was brilliant. He was attentive and courteous a credit to Leicester College
Preferred the larger sticky toffee pudding from last June!? Otherwise fab as usual!
Wonderful experience for our students from Soar Valley College. Very different food and atmosphere to what they are used to.
Lovely food and atmosphere, super service . For me some of the vegetables were a little too al dente and I would’ve liked to be offered some condiments such as vinegar or mustard- however -overall it is a superb experience.
The food was excellent and the service was good and served by very efficient staff.
Excellent food and service. All the staff extremely helpful and pleasant. thank you a lovely evening.
