Harden's says

Open since 1976, and still owned by the same family, Bobby's had a major refurbishment in the summer of 2018, re-opening with a new look and some new dishes (all still vegetarian, of course!)

Summary

Since 1976 this Indian sweet shop and canteen has been one of the best-liked landmarks of the Golden Mile, known for its filling and cheap, veggie Gujarati and Indo-Chinese fare. With its smart and modern refurb however (and the introduction of a ‘healthy dishes’ section to its menu), fans now say it’s an all-round winner.

Part restaurant, part take-away, part sweet shop, this canteen institution has been a feature of the Golden Mile since 1976; the Gujarati fare (ranging from breakfast to buffets) is both bargainous and entirely veggie.

Summary

“A star in Leicester” – this decrepit sweet shop and canteen has been a linchpin of the city’s ‘Golden Mile’ since 1976. Critics dismiss its performance nowadays as “awful”, but to fans it’s still an authentic subcontinental experience – “no flock wallpaper in sight” – with “genuine” Gujarati cuisine at bargain prices.
