We've been visiting the Ainsworth/Nelson area for the past 15 years or so. Our pattern is to stay at the Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort, spend time in the hot pools, and then venture to Nelson for good food and drink. However, My first ever appreciation of lamb vindaloo came from the Ainsworth Resort restaurant - it was the most delicious... More

My first time visiting Baker Street in Nelson, BC and my feet led me to the heavenly aroma of Baba's Indian Restaurant. The lovely hostess served the best curried chicken I personally have ever eaten. A must for travelers looking for authentic cuisine in the friendliest town in Canada!

This friendly restaurant offers reliable food (I've been there many times) in a friendly, unpretentious atmosphere. No starched tablecloths or fake turbans here - just good food. It is a favourite luncheon spot of local business people as well as families and visitors. I have always enjoyed the palak paneer (Indian cheese with spinach) served with rice and pampadam. The...

Some of the best Indian food. We had a lovely Palak Paneer (spinach and cheese), plus a 'meat' special of the day... a type of curry chicken. Flavours were perfect. And the Dahl! My wife doesn't generally like Dahl, but she loved this one.....very flavourful. Our server was very attentive and friendly as well. A great lunch; we'll be back.... More

A couple of days ago my wife and I had a very nice dinner at Baba's, sitting by a table on the sidewalk just watching the world of Nelson pass by. Very relaxing. I ordered lamb vindaloo, a vegetable patty and a chipati. Excellent flavours and a good size...not too large. We had a couple of Nelson's finest hemp ales... More

Having recently been to India, we were excited to find this restaurant in Nelson. The food was as delicious as we had in India, if not better because the seasonings were perfect. The tahli plates brought back such good memories. The portions were perfect. I always love tandoori chicken, but the menu has so many delicious options it was difficult... More

Hubby and I are curry fanatics and this place has drawn us back at least 8 times. Quaint little place with a great atmosphere and a very adequate menu. Portions are good, prices are reasonable and staff is very accommodating. The lamb curry is a must but I must say, I didn't like the Raita. It was sweet, thick and... More

Noticed this one on a previous trip but didn't stop in. Decided to give it a try tonight and wow. The couple who run this restaurant do a great job! The food has some northern India and some southern India so a wide variety. We ordered three dishes with a side of naan and rice which is alot for 2... More

The lunch menu didn't fancy me and the cook noticed that and offered up the dinne menu. Lamb Curry was great and the pakoras were tasty. Rice seemed to be a few days old, dry. Cant wait to try them for dinner!

My group stopped in here on a whim, to satisfy me, pretty much. I love Indian food and I don't get many chances to eat it. My cousin was not terribly eager, as she had never had Indian cuisine before. The server was very patient with all of the questions she had to field and helped my cousin pick out... More
