Fresh food and friendly staff

Babu has many dishes and the food is made fresh daily. I cannot think of any other restaurant where you get not only good food but the value factor is very high. The business is always busy and there is usually a lineup to get your food but it is worth it.

This little hole in the wall serves up great food. A team of friendly servers stand behind a long counter to take your order. Plenty of veggie options, along with fish, shrimp, mutton, and chicken. Numerous fried snacks as well, and baked goods by the register. Last time I went I had eggplant relish, channa (chickpeas), chicken 65 (amazing), another... More

They have all kinds of food such as kothu roti, biriyani rice, dosai, rice and curries, snacks such as ladu, cakes, sweets, patties, rolls, maul buns etc etc. However, these used to taste good, they used to put a lot of meat in rolls and patties, now it is more potatoes, like 99%. Anything you want in terms of food... More

Wow, Toronto residents are lucky when it comes to South Indian cuisine. I like the parotta and kothu parotta very much. Sure will stop by next time to try other items too.

Wow this is some crazy good food. I've had Dosa many times before, this one is very good compared to industry standards but The Chicken Khotu Roti I tried for the first time and I must say it is extraordinary and addictively good. This will be a new staple for sure as part of my already intense list of weekly... More

In an effort to cook large quanties the flavours are to jumbled and spice is used to mask the lack of creativity.

We have been frequenting the Markham location ever since it opened. We had heard good things about the food of the Scarborough location and this one doesn’t disappoint either. There is plenty of choice - curries, meats, veg, fish etc - and the fellows behind the counter are helpful and eager to explain the dishes to a newbie like myself.
