For me there is no difference between an ordinary low cost hotel to Babai hotel. Till today idly is some what better but not all other items. Maintenance is average. Name is same from last so many years but not the food now. If you want to enjoy food here Idly with ghee, Upma Pesarattu and filter coffee are preferable.

I went here with my cousins and the Babai special was awesome. That was the only item I ate and perfect. Place is a little crowded and too small but keep your head down and enjoy your food. I believe they have an AC room in the back now. Would go again

Babai hotel is a traditional tiffin joint which is popular across Andhra Pradesh for its hot steaming Idly's served with freshly home made white butter and podi...this dish is mouthwatering and is craved for...apart from their Idly's all the other variety of dosa's..Andhra pesarattu served with upma makes this hotel a truly authentic eateries in this coastal city of Vijayawada......

Visited this hotel with many hopes as I heard so much, but realised that it is very small hotel and not good place to sit. Idle and pessarattu were really tasty. But the behaviour of team who are working in the hotel were really bad and they have attitude "If you wish to eat here, you have to bear us"... More
