We went to Babur for my birthday last week and had if anything an even better meal than on our half dozen or so previous visits. Two new tasting menus with matching wines have been introduced, one with meat and fish and one vegetarian. We had the five course vegetarian version which is an absolute delight.The cooking is sophisticated yet also fresh and simple, with the flavours of the excellent ingredient clearly emerging alongside the subtle herbs and spices. It remains amazing that we have a restaurant of such quality in this slightly obscure corner of SE23, but local residents should treasure it and it is also well worth a visit from further afield, particularly as prices are much lower than equivalent food in more obvious areas. Five substantial and beautifully cooked courses for two with matching wines (much more generously poured than the advertised 100ml per course!) resulted in a bill under £100 - very good value for this quality. Lovely staff as always, and we had a nice chat with the chef when he came out to ask us what we thought at the end of our meal.
