The buffet is not the best

Called in here recently on a Saturday and had the buffet lunch. It's good value – but only if you go back and refill a couple of times – and tasty, but limited selection and really nothing to write home about. It would help non-regulars, and those of us genuinely interested in what we're eating, if... read more

Have been going to Bobby's for a lot of years, popped in recently for lunch and was a bit disappointed, chose to order from the menu rather than the lunchtime buffet and felt the menu has got too big, trying to copy Mirch Masala?, much preferred it when they had a smaller more specialised menu, also prices now seem to...

We've been meaning to try Bobby's restaurant for ages ... my partner's vegetarian and I'm mostly vegetarian so we were excited about trying it. It was smaller and more 'cafe-ish' than I expected but we had a lovely meal and evening. I asked the waiter for a starter recommendation and I think I ended up with Bobby's Special Chaat which...

Just an awful place to eat - we went in and had the buffet lunch deal (which we were overcharged for) and it was pathetic... everything was either bland or painfully full of chilli, no flavour was anywhere to be found. The atmosphere was awkward and defensive (probably because we're white) the crockery and cutlery was filthy, and I regret... More

We went to Bobby's for the first time with high hopes. Firstly we had booked a table for 8 of us. We had to wait 15 minutes until they found us one upstairs. They didn't look particularly busy. Then we had to wait 45minutes for our starters to arrive, when we were told they did not have the drinks Marinda,... More

Food is average.... Dhokla is dry n hard always.. The dosa was too stale n tasted like the readymade "Gits" variety. We tried buffet n during our meal were made to wait for 10mins for the puri/breads to arrive... Also one the waitress with glasses was very unfriendly n did not know how to smile while taking orders. Will not... More

A true institution with a range of food which is fantastic. However, in the wrong mood it can be a little too strong on the clove. Bobby's is without rival as a Veg restaurant and the buffet is really good value and very good quality. If you are in Leicester you have to try this place, if you do, you... More

This is a nice restaurant set in a very nice area with very friendly staff. Food quality is good and its value for money as well. They have variety of frood, drinks and they do nice Indian sweets as well. Restaurant side is bit slow bu the sweet centre is very fast.

A warm welcome always at Bobby's vegetarian Indian restaurant, we have eaten very cheaply downstairs from the buffet and upstairs from the a la carte, the waiters are very informative and helpful. We have been many times and never been disappointed in fact my brother comes from Manchester to go.
