“Awesome find that made our holiday.”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Top notch Indian food, without a doubt one of the best curry houses I have found. We were served within ten minutes of ordering and were able to pay by card. The chefs even added a little spice to my meal, the servings were huge and the meals were extremely tasty.
The restaurant looks a little shabby from the outside as it's really exposed to the seafront, but inside everything looks clean and presentable. The only negative thing is that the view is of the main road.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Visited this restaurant in February 2013. Menu looked good, but the food was very average. Not at all welcoming, only one other table taken. Service slow, they wouldn't take a credit card so we ended up searching the car for cash. Won't go there again.

“Lovely Food - Slow Service”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

The food was lovely and very tasty (there is a huge menu - in choice and literal size) that caters for all tastes. The onion bhaji is gorgeous and I had butter chicken which just has a lovely fresh flavour. It is a cut above the average food on offer in other curry establishments but the service we had this time around was exceptionally slow. There was a long wait for the starter and then an even longer wait for the main. It did not matter too much to my group as we were in no hurry and enjoying a good catch but other diners were getting fed up. This is what holds it back from a good rating this time.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We've not been to Baba for some time mainly because they didn't take cards so when we saw they were taking them again,decided to go back. Sadly things were not as they used to be.....neither of our main courses had the depth of flavour that they should have had...all you could taste was chilli,no subtlety at all. As someone who has been to India many times and cooks curries as taught by my Indian friends I was very disappointed as we have always had excellent mealls in Baba in the past,we won't be going back again.

“Gourmet level Asian food”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

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.
