The menu looked familiar so I think this family operated at other locations but has since consolidated into this one on Madison Road. Unfortunately on the evening of our visit it was 90 degrees outside and half of their A/C was out so it was quite warm inside. I had the Baba India Special consisting of Aloo tikki and pakora,...

Even for those who are squeamish about East Indian food I highly recommend this restaurant. The wait staff are very helpful and it's easy and free to park in their lot.

Passing thru saw this tripadvisor well rated Indian restaurant I would agree the flavors are worth the stop. I had lamb rogan josh (heat 4 out of 6) with a side of spinach with cheese and cheese nan. All excellent. Only downside was the sides were all full portions Restaurant interior is plain with tight spacing on the tables Service... More

If you don't want to fight the line or have the parking hassles at Ambar, this is the place for you. Wonderful food, good service.

We went out with our infant daughter on a weeknight to Baba India and had a great experience. The restaurant is busy and loud so it was perfect for our daughter who can be quite active. Our meal was delicious. I highly recommend the Saag paneer which was just wonderful. We also had the dal and aloo paratha which were... More

On an unseasonably chilly and wet night, while visiting in Cincinnati, we decided to try Baba India for takeouts. We ordered vegetable samosas, vegetable pakoras, Naan, chicken tikka masala, saag mushroom, and dal makhani. The food was ready and waiting when we went to pick it up, and was packaged well so no spillage in the car! The food was... More

We had a hard time deciding what to order, the menu was that good. We enjoyed everything we selected. Not fancy, but perfect for a casual place to go at the last minute. Will definitely go back.

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
