One of my friends invited us for a dinner in this restaurant. The food was very fresh and the staffs were very helpful. We tried different food and enjoyed all of them. The price of the food was also reasonable. If you are looking for a vegetarian delicious food, you may try in Sharmilee.

We visited as a large group with children, and the restaurant were very welcoming. Food here is top notch, everything we had tasted really good and fresh, especially the bhatura, they are a must!

After travelling back from India, we were looking for somewhere nice and after a lot of disappointment it was a relief to have some authentic flavours and foods to relish. Most defiantly book marked to visit again! ZK

Great value and some of the best Indian vegetarian food you can get. Prices amazing. Place a little noisy and the service was a bit slow - no fault of the staff, just not enough of them. Went on a Wednesday - place was packed.

When ever I visit Leicester, Sharmilee is a must visit. Coming here for last 12 years. That proves its quality. Food never changes its authentic tastes and staffs are always helpful. Always a great experience despite it is a vegetarian restaurant.
