Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Shri Bheema's is hidden behind a pillared facade at the quieter end of Constitution Street, with another branch in the Southside on Nicolson Street. Inside is spacious, with formal place settings and a few eclectic paintings on the walls to set the mood. Fully licenced, the menu is substantial, providing a tour of the cuisines and regions of India. Starters are plentiful, with the gobi manchurian marinated cauliflower a must for meat eaters and veggies alike – spicy, sticky, sweet and savoury. Goan lamb vindaloo comes with the expected punch of heat but also flavour.
