Discover Our history

Mem-Saab has used the concept of traditional home cooking in the grand style for more than a decade. With its unique combination of traditional values and contemporary sophistication, Mem-Saab offers the authentic taste of an indian home, in an atmosphere conductive to fine dining.

Now in its new building, located in the prestigious £350 million Highcross Shopping Precinct, the contemporary decor offers a pleasing environment in which to enjoy our delicious menu and tempting selection of champagne and cocktails.

"Sahib" in India means "sir" and was originally used out of respect for rank and authority, as was "Mem Sahib" which means "lady" or literally "lady sir". The Mem Sahib, as it is usually pronounced, came to hold an important place in Indian society.

Mem-Saab is dedicated to the redoubtable ladies of the Raj. A little luxury and well-earned relaxation in elegant surrounding, with good food, prepared with fresh ingredients, served by efficient and friendly people, devoted to your well being. It has a place in today's civilised society.
