Good Indian choice in Nelson

Good prices and good food we always enjoy our meal here. Central location on Baker street downtown. Small and family owned no franchise garbage here.

I love East Indian food and I have to say this was not my favourite. Had the butter chicken and lamb rogan josh. The butter chicken could have been creamier and I've never had butter chicken with peppers and onions in it before. It was alright, but not what I was expecting. It was also pretty greasy. The naan bread... More

Love the chicken platter.. The naan and chicken dish taste so good... and the desset-white dumpling in sweetened milk with cardamom and pistachio tasted wonderful.. Hanjali has her leg on wheels and takes care of all the tables cheerfully. The only setback was the smoky ambiance.. The place is too tight and the kitchen is close to some of the... More

Owned and run by a local family, the food at Baba's is authentic and consistently good. Good atmosphere and decor as well. Friendly service is always appreciated. Our family's favourite place for eating out, it's always a treat. Takeout as well.

real Indian food, masterly prepared by the owners/chefs Chris and Anjali. Chris is from northern India and Anjali from the south, so a lot of the meals are a fusion of northern and southern cooking styles A very extensive menu open six days a week at lunchtime(12:00) with a buffet lunch and supper every Monday I eat here at least...

Delicious indian food, the tandoori chicken especially delicious! Prices decent, decor is cozy and genuine. Not fancy but definitely festive feeling. Would come back again on future visits to Nelson.

I've only really had limited Indian Restaurant experiences but I hope they could all be like this. They are the most friendly people you could meet and the wait time to get your food is so fast. I go at least once a week for lunch and could not be happier every time. For sure a business I wish to... More
