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.

The food was authentic, Indian. The vegetarian Thali plate had two curries and dahl with all the usual trimmings. The service was efficient. The prices reasonable.

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!
