My girlfriend & I ate here in February. They only have a set menu which is €45 per person. Looking at the menu, there wasn't anything I really fancied/ recognised. The owner then recommended us the mussels/ lamb for starters and vindaloo/lamb curry. The food was absolutely amazing. They add a few extra snacks between orders. What made the night... More

The food was really really nice, pricey (you pay for the nice location), the interior is basic but clean and the service is rather quick. The reason I give a low mark is the following (read the same issue in other comments): Too bad the owner's arrogant attitude is spoiling the appetite, especially children. I'm really blessed with my children... More

Bhavani offers premium Indian cuisine in a very nicely decorated room, and professional staff. Not exactly on the cheap side, but really worth what you are going to pay. Small remark: the menu list and pricing scheme is not clear at all..

Nice food. Spicy or not spicy! For everyone there is a dish! It's not that cheap but you get your money back!

Very cosy restaurant that serves great Indian dishes. (Not your typical cheap Indian decoration!) Centrally located but not a "tourist trap". Friendly staff. Good for romantic dinners or small family/business groups. Not a very large amount of choices, but the fresh products are all very good. Can end up being expensive if you order all the side dishes. But worth... More

Really nice restaurant, atmosphere and all. The food was really delicious, great Indian taste and loved it!!! Reason for giving it a 3-star: way expensive! You could not see the individual prices on the menu, for rice you had to pay 2€ per person which should be kind of part of your dish, otherwise you just have a bowl of... More

A little pricey but absolutely amazing food. A must try when in Bruges. Try the thali for lunch. Unlimited refills and lip smacking deliciousness awaits. Even the most discerning of palates will find the food to be very very satisfying. Kudos to the team. Great job!

We ate lunch here on a day trip to Bruges and sat in the window overlooking the market stalls. The staff were very friendly and explained the menu choices well. We decided to go for the set lunch menu, which although was slightly more expensive, was delicious. Dishes included lentil soup for an appetiser followed by chicken, spinach and cheese,... More

Read a few reviews saying 40 euros is expensive - what £34 ish for top quality food where the side dishes with the main course are continually topped up as much as you like! Take into account the ambiance of the place and I think its a cheap deal compared to any quality Indian restaurant in London/any other major UK... More
