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!

I don't know what it is. Or, well... I know exactly what it is. Those spices. From the time I first tasted a sprinkle of crushed red pepper on a pizza slice as a child, I knew... I desired - no - I NEEDED that spice. It made me feel whole. It brought a whole new mixture of pain and... More

Some of the workers tend to be cold. The food is good, but slightly pricier than most, in my opinion.

I've been to Baba India many times, and enjoy it very much. The chicken tikka comes on a sizzling plate and I think it is clearly better than you can find elsewhere. The red chutney is nice with several dishes, and packs a serious punch (which I like). The portions are very generous, and the service is usually top notch.... More

The food is always excellent and well prepared at this restaurant. Service is excellent. They have a well-stocked buffet most lunch days and on the weekend. Lot's of vegetarian options. My favorite Indian restaurant in Cincinnati.
