A large group of people smashed the windows of the Moghul Durbar in East Park Road, Spinney Hills.
Once members of the group were inside the restaurant, a number of people were assaulted and others were injured.
A total of six people attended the Leicester Royal Infirmary for treatment to both minor and serious injuries.
The latest charge comes after six men were charged yesterday in connection with the incident.
Surjit Pandher (date of birth, November 18, 1984), Gurmukh Singh Cheema (June 13, 1987), Ranjit Singh (April 13, 1991), Sundeep Singh Sangha (April 16, 1987), Rajveer Sangha (May 1, 1988), and Ranvir Singh (April 13, 1991), appeared at Leicester Magistrates' Court, and afterwards were remanded into custody.
They all face a charge of conspiracy to commit violent disorder.
Police said local officers were continuing to work with community leaders and people living and working in the East Park Road to offer reassurance.
They are urging people not to listen to rumours or get involved in speculation, but to report any concerns to the police.
Police added that officers investigating a separate incident, in which concerns for the welfare of a young girl were raised, are continuing to speak with the girl and her family.
Additional resources have been added to the investigation, said police, and officers are "actively carrying out thorough and detailed inquiries, along with in depth intelligence gathering, which will all form part of the lengthy investigation".
