Great meal for eat-in or takeout

We went out with our infant daughter on a weeknight to Baba India and had a great experience. The restaurant is busy and loud so it was perfect for our daughter who can be quite active. Our meal was delicious. I highly recommend the Saag paneer which was just wonderful. We also had the dal and aloo... read more

On an unseasonably chilly and wet night, while visiting in Cincinnati, we decided to try Baba India for takeouts. We ordered vegetable samosas, vegetable pakoras, Naan, chicken tikka masala, saag mushroom, and dal makhani. The food was ready and waiting when we went to pick it up, and was packaged well so no spillage in the car! The food was... More

What terrible service I just received from Baba India. I live in the neighborhood and frequent this restaurant once a week. I always get paneer makhani to go. Tonight, when I got home, I began eating and realized they had given me chicken makhani. I do not eat meat but am pretty relaxed about my practice. I called back and... More

We had a hard time deciding what to order, the menu was that good. We enjoyed everything we selected. Not fancy, but perfect for a casual place to go at the last minute. Will definitely go back.

My wife, our daughter and I stopped here for an early dinner. We had been down the street at the Duck Creek Antique Mall and found the restaurant by Googling Indian restaurants in the area. The reviews seemed positive, so we gave it a try. When we pulled into the lot, we almost left.....not one soul was inside eating –... More

We went to dinner at Baba India on Saturday evening. The atmosphere was great. We didn't have to wait for a table and we didn't have reservations. I don't know if they take reservations. You might want to call especially if you have a larger group. We used our coupon book and received a nice discount. The dinners were plentiful... More

I am not an Indian food connoisseur at all. In fact, up until two years ago, I had never eaten Indian food. My wife and I were talked into eating here by a friend. Why had I waited so long?? The family atmosphere is great. The food is outstanding. We have tried other places in Cincinnati, but always come back... More

Although I would like it a little spicier, Baba India's selections are always very good! The family greet you, seat you, and then, you're off to the buffet to figure where to start. The Tandoor Chicken is AWESOME! Moist and packed with flavor. The various curry dishes are good, again I'd like a little more kick, but that's MY taste... More

This Restaurant is wonderful. Authentic and decent prices. Family owned, and they accommodate requests. About 7 minutes off of I71 if you are traveling. Lunch buffet is wonderful!

I recommend the lamb curry or saag (spinach) @ about a 4 or 5 spice level. The menu is the same as most bland Indian restaurants that leave me wanting more to desire, bit this place does not disappoint, the spice and flavor here is outstanding. Love the family run business!
