Upon visiting recently with a friend from India, we were quite disappointed..Service was very slow. Not being an expert on Indian food, My friend who obviously is, ordered a lot of things. It all seemed brown and kind of uninspiring to me, and a number of things he asked for that are very authentic (and very simple) daily things one... More

Great authentic Indian food. Helpful staff, with lots of suggestions of what is good (and not so good!)

The service is great, however the food is sub par for traditional Indian food. The butter chicken tastes purely of tomato and barbecue sauce, the lentils were extremely bitter, and the rice was a little too dry. The fish pakoras were very good though, and it's decent pricing.

We liked Baba's, its easy to find and has an authentic feel. The menu food comes out much nicer that the buffet option. It was a great deal and we left full. It's not fancy, just a nice dinner. Thanks Babas.

We read the reviews of several restaurants in Nelson and decided on Baba's for our final evening in Nelson after a week of so enjoying the area. We had a wonderful evening and the food was so tasty - the service impeccable and the food totally satiating. A very gratifying experience. Enjoy!!

We arrived 7pm, we were told no table available, but another patron gave up her table for us (party of 4) Food was flavoursome, but servings weren't large. We felt the $10 corkage was a bit rich, as they had a limited wine list. The staff weren't warm or friendly. The waitress lacked knowledge in the wines that they had... More

In our group of four, everyone had a very nice meal. I ordered the Lamb and was pleasantly surprised. It was more spicy than I've had at other restaurants, and I think the best I've had for it's richness.

We were looking for a place to eat after a short hike in Kokanee and met with a friend at Baba's for the buffet. The service was friendly and the price was very good. We stuck to the pakoras and Dahl and even went for seconds. The plates however were greasy on the bottom... Our friend ordered the fried fish... More

Our host, my partner's sister's husband, being from Singapore, was intending to take us to his favorite Oriental Restaurant in Nelson, after a Hot bath at Ainsworth. We found they'd closed for a vacation, but he said he had previously enjoyed Baba's, across the Main street. I was pleased since just the day before, attending the fantastic annual Garlic Festival...

Need to try more dishes to give a proper review. Have had better Pakoras, naan and chick peas elsewhere.
