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.

Great lunch on the patio. We had one of their combos. Lots of food and the flavours were great. My husband had the butter chicken and loved it, I had the special that day and it was awesome.

Smaller restaurant right on the Nelson strip, delicious authentic Indian food. Ate there in June 2016 and would go back again the next time we're in town. Staff was also very friendly and the prices are good. Definitely recommend. The bathroom needs to be called out, its clean but hilariously small. Like bang your knees on the door when sitting...

No bad surprise here. In my party, we all had great food. The ambiance of the restaurant felt like it could be updated, but the food was good. They tend to serve the food quite spicy though. I asked for something sweet and found that my food was quite spicy despite asking for something that wouldn't be. I asked for... More

So we live in Vancouver where good, cheap Indian food is readily available. Have to say that this is superlative and really authentic food. The Chicken Tikka Mekhani is their version of butter chicken only the best butter chicken you've ever had, so sweet and fragrant. The Lamb Rogan Josh was tender and flavourful. Garlic naan OMG yum. We had... More

We have now been here a number of times and have never been disappointed with quality or taste of the food. There is a good cross section of food. In the summer months, we find that air conditioning would certainly help, especially when you sit near the back of the restaurant. Service was prompt. The restaurant tends to fill up... More

The food is great here! It's authentic, the waitress was very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and it was reasonable. It has a bit of a diner/ cafe feel to it but the food is worth it. I would definitely recommend.

First time to Baba's & loved it! My daughter & me opted for the 14.95$ dinner buffet. Not a huge selection of food but very flavourful. I did go for seconds! Service from the Owner's wife was really good & she was very kind. Atmosphere is good, not too shabby. Clean for sure. Location is nice, right downtown on Baker... More
