We found this restaurant by chance a couple of years back and had the most amazing meal. So came back every 6 months.

We're regular European road-trippers and try to make Bruges our last two nights after a trip to Italy or Provence. For years we'd look for an excellent Belgian steak and chips with a glass or two of Duvel, but this was such an excellent find that, after about 3 visits, in December last year on a whim, got in the car, went for a curry in Bruges, stayed the night in the excellent Die Swaene and came home.

Ignore the moans about price. Nothing any good comes cheap.

550 miles there and back just for a meal. It's that good.

This was our favorite dining experience in Bruges. We just happened to
find it while walking thru Bruges looking for a place to have lunch. We sat
at a window table and enjoyed watching the activity in the square across
the street and the horse and buggies go by. Wonderful atmosphere,
excellent service and the food was wonderful. Our waiter patiently
explained the menu selections to us and - ooo lala - he was very
handsome!! If you like Indian food, don't miss Bhavani!

Another visit to the Bhavani in Bruges and we were wowed yet again. The food is of a high quality and tastes absolutely fantastic. The flavours are incredible and the dishes are really authentic Indian dishes. For the main course we had the chicken madras and a shank of lamb- both dishes as well as the starters tasted great. The rice and naan bread also tasted very good. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. There is a good selection of wines and drinks on the menu. It is not cheap, but worth every penny. Actually this is the first Indian restaurant we have dined in where we think the food is worth a Michelin star!

My wife and I visited this restaurant in May as Indian food is her favourite. The restaurant is handily located off the main shopping street in Simon stevinplein, and although we reserved a table, it was possible to get a table in the evening without booking. There are around 15 tables, the atmosphere is nice, not too loud even though we were sat very close to another couple. The menu offers a meat option for 40 euro and a non meat option for 35 euro, consisting of a starter and a main. Drinks are on top and are not cheap. The food itself was well cooked, tasty and authentic Indian food (not the English style curry house) but the service, although friendly was a little slow. Mixed feelings, my wife would return (pull of a curry!), but I would try somewhere else next time.
