“Don't be fooled by the cover”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

This restaurant is located on King Street North and University Avenue but the entrance is a little obscure. But dining isn't about the front entrance.

The atmosphere has a feel of South East Asia add a little eclectic charm.

But the food is exceptional. Lots to choose from and lots of different flavours. I chose the surf and turf dinner with jumbo shrimp and cut pieces of beef.

Don't forget that they make all of there dishes in an open kitchen and is fun to watch. Also, the home made ice cream is to die for.

“Amazing. Earn's its ranking. A must try!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

A true Waterloo gem. I have lived in this city for 28 years, and only found out about it 2 years ago. An absolute must for anyone visiting or living in the city.

Yes Bhima's is pricey, but truth be told, I wouldn't want to go there all the time anyways. It's a place I go with only the most important of people in my life for special occasions, and can always be assured that the food, service and overall ambiance will be impeccable. Also, with the Charcoal Group of generic restaurants costing relatively the same $ wise, you can't even compare. Bhima's is on a completely different level.

Treat yourself and try this amazing place. Be sure to have one of their daily drink concoctions, which always impress.

Cheers.

“Don't be fooled by this restaurant's exterior!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This has been my favourite restaurant in Waterloo since I discovered it 5 years ago. It's a little pricier than most and we only frequent it for special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is great. The waitstaff wear traditional Indonesian dress and the kitchen is exposed to the restaurant so the chef can be seen at work!

“Truly different & Enjoyable Eating Experience”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

If your looking for a quick and less expensive meal, don't go here. The entrance and exterion wont get many good reviews either. But this fantastic restaurant is one of the best I have visited, and having lived in 9 cities in Canada, I ate at more than a few fine hotel & other restaurants. This exotic place is ideal for romantic or other special occassions. Needless to say the food was truly excellent, exotic, and yes expensive, but well worth it. We will go again.

“Delicious, cozy and pleasant”
Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

We had a great evening tonight at the Bhima's where good company was mixed with excellent cocktails, beautiful dishes and skilled staff. This little restaurant with its somewhat tacky but perhaps authentic decor is a gem. While this place is somewhat pricy it certainly is worth its price.

The only problem is that you'll have a hard time not ordering everything on the extensive menu.
