    Very helpful staff. Very good experience overall.

    Friendly knowledgeable service with good advice about choices and take out.
    Most food freshly prepared. Pani Puri pre-prepared but tasty.

    Friendly and helpful service. Tasty food that is always nicely presented.

    The menu was superb - a combination of old favorites and some new amazing dishes as well. The food was fresh and served quickly by friendly and attentive staff. The portion size was excellent. We couldn't eat everything but ended up taking what was left home for supper. Bobby's never fails to impress.

    Amazing food with great service.

    A fabulous place to eat, the best Indian vegetarian meal I've had. So much choice and they will explain what anything is if you ask them. Brilliant value too.

    The food was very tasty however, the curry portions, we felt were a bit too small, to enable 2 people to share a curry.
    The service was reasonable, at 1 point 1 of our party members had to get up to gain the attention of the waiters for some serviettes and water.
    Overall, enjoyed the food but service and portion sizes in the curries could be better.

    Ordered the Special Thali menu, really enjoyed trying new dishes, fantastic value for money, excellent and friendly service.

    The food was lovely and you get a lot for your money. The staff were all incredibly helpful and polite. The restaurant was pretty clean. However, the toilets smelt absolutely horrendous and the smell did seep in to the restaurant a little, which was obviously a bit off putting. This is why is have only rated the ambiance a two.

    I would like to that the staff are amazing and the owners so well coming. I would go again and give it 5 stars .

    Food was delicious with a wide range of flavours and spiciness. Rice and breads were cooked just right and all dishes were authentic. Nice, relaxed atmosphere and not a posh restaurant but with a family feel. Portion size is as traditional Indian style to that dishes can be shared, which is great for a group of people (we were 7). Helpful staff and attentive to our needs. Definitely go back again and again.

    Wedding anniversary party at Bobby's. Food and drinks as always were excellent and good value. Attentive service. Would have preferred to eat at tables on ground floor as we were isolated on first floor and it felt a bit like eating in a store room with stock boxes stacked up
    at the entrance.

    Great meal - very friendly owner. Food was tasty and good value :)

    We think the best way to dine at Bobby's is with a crowd of friends so that the different dishes can be shared. Always love the food. The service is friendly and helpful. Love it!

    Staff very friendly and helpful, quantity and quality of food high - but was a little disappointed on the value for money.

    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.

    Absolutely perfect all around. Food was amazing with a large menu to pick from. Staff were polite with excellent service. Wonderful seating area upstairs. It made the perfect valentines day. We will be back very soon :)

    Fantastic evening as always!

    Brilliant buffet, lots of tasty choice, savoury and sweet!

    We have been to bobby's many times over the years, and have never been disappointed.

    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.

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 purely 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.
