Shri Bheemas

Shri Bheema’s is family owned and managed, and presents authentic, pure and delicious South and North Indian food at competitive prices. In the city centre branch, Shri Bheema is very much a local restaurant akin to Dalkeith’s Bombay Lounge in that local patrons are almost considered family. Quality, authenticity and attention to taste for western palate are pillars to the Shri Bheema’s success. These traits have helped it forge a rather famous reputation which is coupled with reasonable affordability and good service.

Shri Bheema’s menu features a range of dishes from all over Asia, from timeless classics of South India like Dosa, Idly, Vada, Oothappam and many more, to North Indian classics cooked tandoori style, as well as roti, naan and other complementing sundries. There are also some reasonably novel dishes, such as the Sweet & Sour Chicken Lollipops (£6.99), and the wide range of Dosas from its simplest form through to egg and chicken variants to appeal with simple rates.

One criticism could be the size and complexity of the menu, but it is split into sections and types of dish to allow for the choice to be made a little easier. Given the success of the initial branch, a second new location has now opened. The question is: which one is better? It’s always worth sampling both to find out.
