I grew up in Nelson, and this is one of my favourite restaurants here. When I go for Indian food in other places, I wish it was Baba's. It all tastes like real food, like nothing came out of a packet or a mix, and I like that a lot. My celiac friend easily found gluten free food she could... More

Had a delicious meal here. The decor is casual and more of a cafe setting. Service was very good. All homemade Indian cuisine.

I have eaten hear many times. The lunch special is predictably good. The portions are generous and the wait staff friendly. Don't be afraid to ask about the various dishes, they are always glad to tell you what is in the recipes and how they are prepared.
