We say…

Boasting a prime spot on Leicester’s Belgrave Road, also known as the ‘Golden Mile’ as a result of its fantastic Indian and Asian restaurants and shops, is Bobby’s. Founded by Mr Bhagwanjibhai and Mrs Manglaben Lakhani in 1976, Bobby’s is pure a vegetarian Indian restaurant that bases its culinary values on those of authentic, traditional Gujarati cuisine.

The restaurant is now managed by Dharmesh, a passionate host whose love for the history of the venue and the food itself is clear to see in every aspect of his personality. The dining room is an absolute haven from the hustle and bustle of the busy street outside and the soft plum, fern and cream colour scheme creates the perfect canvas for the chefs to present their vibrant and flavourful dishes. The layout of the dining room is incredibly flexible and the combination of large round tables that are ideal for groups looking to share their dishes, small tables for intimate dinners for two and large long tables for family banquets, makes Bobby’s ideal for all occasions.

Boasting a Head Chef who has been asked to submit his recipes for publication in BBC cook books, even the most dedicated meat-eater would be foolish to bypass Bobby’s because it is vegetarian restaurant. In the years that Bobby’s has been established, it has succeeded in converting masses of carnivores into regulars thanks to the punchy flavours, aromas and textures of the food on offer. The menu includes everything from farsans and traditional Indian sweets to authentic a la carte meals cooked fresh to order, using only the finest ingredients at value for money prices. You can expect to find spectacular dishes such as Channa Masala, chick peas cooked in a hot and spicy gravy; Bengan Bharta, smoked and mashed aubergine, pan fried with a variety of spices; and the Vegetable Tawa Masala, an exciting medley of vegetables cooked in Bobby’s secret blend of spices with green chillies and served in a traditional flat pan. As well as offering traditional Gujarati dishes, Bobby’s also offers a diverse but equally delicious array of indo-fusion dishes.

From the colourful display of Indian snacks on display to the menus and décor; everything is a labour of love at Bobby’s. The restaurant was even named after the Bollywood romance film ‘Bobby’ that follows the romance between a rich boy and a poor girl. Whether you’re a vegetarian or not, we can guarantee that you will be won over by the years of passion that have been poured into Bobby’s Vegetarian Indian Restaurant.

    Overall:

    Great food, menu is like a book, probably harder to make a decision as a result so went for the beginner's set course. It was very nice, next time though we'll go for the buffet which was £1 less each and you could eat as much as you wanted. I wouldn't class it as a restaurant more like an Indian diner.

    Overall:

    I have been twice to this restaurant, once before it was refurbished and once after. On both occasions, the atmosphere was welcoming and the choice of dishes was vast. The buffet is fantastic value for money and the menu seems reasonably priced too. Am looking forward to my return visit.
