Babur is the best Indian Restaurant I have been to in London. Babur named 'London’s best inexpensive restaurant’ - Harden’s 2009. The restaurant has a lovely ambience created by wood panels with huge cut outs behind which recessed lighting hides, pretty stylish as well. The art work is apparently called Kalamkari and is a form of Sanskrit which is very traditional this all manages to blend in with wonderful effect.
The a la carte menu is made up of customer favourites with the lovely touch of monthly changing specials. Sunday has a lunch buffet which is apparently a great way to enjoy the afternoon. Regular food festivals occur in the restaurant including, strangely enough Burns night , and these are famous in their part of London.
The best by far for my agenda is the home-delivery service on their entire restaurant menu. A la carte at home or to impress the visitors ;-) They do have a seperate take away menu as well and apologise in advance for delivery times as everything is cooked from scratch.
A rather impressive wine list with a broad choice and mmmm ! cocktails that are subtle and refreshing. A little piece on pricing from their menu:
“Since opening in 1985, Babur has always had a sensible pricing policy on food and wine. We believe people appreciate value for money and we would rather stay in business than make a quick profit.”
This is a very more’ish experience in Indian cuisine.
