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!)
Harden's survey result
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.
“The best in Leicester’s Golden Mile!”, say fans of this ancient sweet shop and canteen, whose bargain basement Gujarati cuisine has made it a mainstay of the area since 1976.
“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.
