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!

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
