“Gourmet level Asian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I think this is more Bangladesh style food but to most people this is an Indian curry house. The food is in my top ten meals EVER! Just fantastic. To be critical the restaurant is a bit cold in the winter, but could not recommend the food higher! Don't miss this one if your in the south west.

“A holiday treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

It's a holiday tradition to have a curry from Baba whenever we are staying in West Cornwall. Great curry, good service. I can't wait until our next trip!

“Great food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

We went here on Saturday night, it was our first visit, there were four of us and each one of us had a starter and main course with the traditional poppadoms at the beginning. We were all very happy with our food, it was very tasty and fresh. Cannot fault it.
Service was excellent, the waiter was really helpful with our questions about the menu,
even though both he and the chef were fairly new ( as he explained).
We were really surprised that it was not busy, it really does deserve to be. We don't live in Penzance but next time we visit we will definately be going back there!

“A special treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

We have a takeaway from Baba three or four times a year, you get a good discount between 5-7pm on collection and we usually spend about £35 and this lasts us for three nights! The staff are always friendly and efficient and are happy to do something a little special such as a Phal for those with an iron constitution! Although I don't personally eat fish I have been told by several friends and family that their tandoori mackerel is outstanding. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.

“Average and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The Baba used to be able to get away with average and overpriced food as the local competition was rubbish. However since the Little India opened a couple of years ago, which serves fantastic and is great value, I am suprised the Baba is still in business. The only positive it that the front of house service is good.
