Menu is varied and all the dishes are delicious. We have been here many times and we always look forward to returning. The food, the ambience and the service all combine to make this a special restaurant for a date night. I highly recommend it. All the other Indian restaurants downtown do not compare. Babur is the best!! If you... More

The Babur restaurant is small but interesting, a good ambience and wasn't too busy when we went on Saturday evening, about 6.45. I had butter chicken which was very tasty and flavourful, my friend had lamb chops Karahi which was also delicious but rather a small portion. We ordered one rice and one garlic naan to share which was ample,... More

Full disclosure, I am not an expert on Indian cuisine and I've never really met a naan that I didn't like, but this was EXCEPTIONAL! The garlic naan was just perfect. The Saag Paneer was a close second. My only regret is that my stomach would not allow me to sample more of the menu.

Without checking any reviews and only by stumbling across this place in search of some Indian food, did we happen upon this place. Having eaten in many Indian restaurants, this one appeared to be a bit modern and not so culturally inspired in the decor, but we were all tired from travel, so in we went. What a wonderful surprise.... More

We were recommended about this place as a nearby good place for Indian cuisine. It was very near our hotel, in the downtown area. Nice decoration, quiet environment and good cuisine, although with a twist of western taste. Very good nan, the indian bread and a wide variety of beer and perfect Gin and Tonic.

On the South side of Queen St W, near its junction with McCaull, you will find this little establishment decorated like a Paris Bistro, but selling what I consider the best Indian food in the neighbourhood. It is within a km radius of almost all the attractions (Opera House, Concert Hall, Theatres, Ice-Hockey and Basketball Arenas, as well as the... More

We ate at Babur's early on at 7pm on a Saturday night. The place has a really nice feel to it. Hip and comfortable. We ordered a bottle of white but was told it was out of stock. Our second choice was also out of stock. It turns out the bottles were in stock, only not chilled. "Can we wait... More

I have been going to Babur since it first opened on Dundas & now it is on Queen West. Always consistently excellent, tasty food and warm, quick service. Have never been disappointed. and just learnt today that they deliver!
