As always the food here is amazing in this hidden south London gem. I really think this would be pushing 1 Michelin star in central London. Very thoughtful and good wine list also. More...

Came for the Sunday lunch buffet. There were about a variety of 8 different dishes, a salad bar, and naan with rice. The curries were all good, but not exceptional (it's a buffet after all), but I'm taking off a star because there wasn't a single dish that was actually spicy. The drinks are delicious though, and I would highly recommend! More...

Absolutely amazing experience. The restaurant has a narrow entrance but once you step inside there's a lot more space and a lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere. The first thing you will notice is the service: it is beyond reproach. The difference between the service in this restaurant and others is simply staggering. You can clearly tell there's an emphasis on providing the highest standard service possible. We ordered quite a few dishes, starters, 2 mains, desert and drinks - everything was fantastic. They serve a very tasty dal makhani. Highly recommended! More...

The food was very nice, a bit on the pricey side, but it is Michelin starred, so fair enough. They had a vegan menu, and I am a vegan, so I was happy about that. The staff were great. My only gripe is that the place is gloomy, and also a bit cramped. I asked for a candle for my table, to cosy things up a bit (and also so I could see what I was eating) but they didn't have one. The hard surfaces made it very noisy towards the end of the evening, as it got fuller. Not a place I'd go to again, mainly because of the gloominess. More...

A real gem of a place. Authentic dishes with an twist of originality. The 4 course taster menu is a delight with accompanying wine(s). Had to cave in and extend to 5 courses for dessert with liquor, what a good decision and a truly remarkable finish to a splendid meal/evening. Known about this place for 10 years wished i hadn't taken so long...to enter. Won't be long before we go back ☺️. On a par with famous chef names for me Gordon Ramsey etc. Super effort team!!

Very fine meal, but Babur is a very fine restaurant these days (we first went there over 30 years ago). The food is thoughtful and carefully cooked and well presented. The waiting staff are excellent. It is probably the best restaurant in the area, and there is some competition. A wonderful evening out. More...

Booked at short notice on a weekday evening, and had a drive to get there.

I have enjoyed the Babur since the 1980s. Over the years it has become more sophisticated in its presentation. Why would I think nowadays of going to central London to eat an Indian meal when I can eat just as well (no,better ) at the Babur?

This is not your average curry place. The service was impeccable from the moment you walked in to the moment you left. The host was lovely and seated us immediately even though they didn't get the reservation from Opentable. Luckily I had the confirmation email but there was really no need to show them as they took me at my word. We demurred the tasting menu as we thought we would be too full but we had the scallops to start with suggested wine pairings with our mains, the sea bream and the duck, with pilau rice, sag aloo and crispy potatoes for our sides. We also had the deliciously fluffy garlic naan bread. They also had great cocktails. An overall wonderful experience. More...

What a brilliant restaurant to have in the local area! Honestly, the menu and the food is like a restaurant in Central London. It is not your typical Indian restaurant, it is more authentic than dishes typically made for the western palette. A nice touch is that the menu has a suggestion for a wine pairing, which I thought was brilliant. Although the prices of some of the bottles of wine are quite pricey. My friend and I decided to share our dishes so that we could try more. They do offer a set tasting menu but we ordered from the a la carte menu. We were given a complimentary dish to start which was a nice touch, and we had poppadoms with home made chutneys. Normally I don't go for poppadoms but when they arrived I was really impressed. We got all different types and the dips were tasty, some were very spicy! For our starters we ordered the Afghani chicken tikka and Hiran Ki boti (red deer), both dishes were delicious and the deer had a really kick to it, it was a bit spicy for me. The portion sizes were good, so we were both able to have a decent amount each with us sharing. For the main event, we went for Chicken Biryani and the coastal Mutton Masala. Both dishes came with rice, so you don't have to order anything on the side. We just went for a cheese naan and a roti. The biryani was definitely my favourite, it was so full of flavour and it was delivered steamed in a clay pot. The mutton was cooked perfectly, very tender and you got plenty of big chunks of meat. Again that dish was a bit spicy for me, but all dishes are marked with their hotness rating, so it was to be expected. The portion sizes were again, a really good size. We were definitely full when we left!The restaurant has a vast wine list and cocktails available to really make a night of it. I would definitely visit the restaurant again, but it isn't the sort of restaurant I would go to every week. I will probably return when I have visitors to impress with my local area! I would like to try their takeaway, Babur to go, further down the road. The restaurant is quite expensive, I think our bill came to £85 for two people, with a bottle of the cheapest wine they sell. If you are looking for something different than your Korma and Tikka Marsala then try here! I think we are lucky to have something so good nearby. Don't be put off by the giant tiger statue on the roof of the restaurant!! Also, I would suggest booking as the restaurant was full on my visit. We made a booking at 6:30pm on a Friday evening and by the time we we left it was full and there were people waiting. More...

My (now) husband and I had our first date at Babur in 2004 and return each year to remember that night; the ambience is perfect, the staff are attentive, focused and nothing is too much trouble. The food is just sublime and one of the main reasons why this great restaurant is as popular as it is; their creativity and use of ingredients sets it apart from any other Indian restaurant you might have visited - yes, the standards are there, but on the next level; every bite is something to savour and all the more reason to make sure that you experience this local gem, hidden away in leafy Honor Oak Park, as soon as you can.

Thank You Babur for an amazing birthday dinner last night with Petra Lay and John Bowers. It's not just a good curry. It's a fabulous fusion of culinary techniques, flavours and presentation. The service..? Also excellent. I just wish there was a Babur in North West London. More...

Very good food and service. A huge step above the usual curry house fare. Non alcoholic cocktails were tasty. Bit of a delay waiting for our table as they were exceptionally busy but in the scheme of things that's probably a good sign!

I have been going to Babur for years and it never disappoints. This time we tried the vegetarian tasting menu with wines and it was absolutely delicious. The food here simply puts other Indian restaurants in the shade. My only minor complaint is that service can be a bit slow but as soon as I mentioned this to the head waiter, he ensured that things started moving much faster . More...

Babur is a firm favourite of ours! The food is always amazing, great service and the cocktails are to die for!Unfortunately on this occasion there had been an issue in the kitchen and we were an hour later sitting down to eat but the staff were very apologetic and attentive!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Service was second to none, very attentive without being at all over-the-top. We each ordered the vegetarian thali, all components of which were delicious, cocktails and wine - both lists were extensive and we were very happy with the choices we made. If you're looking for a slightly more upscale Indian dining experience, Babur is highly recommended. More...

But what has remained is the outstanding quality of food and the great service provided by the team. In order to be successful you have to evolve, and that they have done to great success.

Our first time at the restaurant and I had heard good things from a friend. I really enjoyed the Currytini cocktail and was not disappointed. I loved the different flavours.

Next time I will aim to go with a mission to try the tasting menu (possibly with the pairs wine). More...

While this a nice change from the more regular Indian restaurants and offers some nice contemporary dishes. It is very overpriced. The quality of the food is less than impressive although the fish dishes are very good. The meat options are poor well presented but taste and flavour is not up to the standard of other places. If you want a contemporary dining experience then go, but if it really good Indian food you want then look at other options. Did I mention it's crazy overpriced...... More...

Another great evening at Babur. Very busy on Friday so the cocktails took over 40 minutes to arrive (we chose 4 different complicated ones but perhaps they could do with a second mixologist! ) They were all worth waiting for though - perfect manhatten with a cinnamon stick swizzle was my favourite!The Christmas tasting menu was wonderful - particularly loved the first course prawn with crisp aubergine and puffed rice. A nicely matched wine menuI've given it 5 stars except for service - not because they weren't all delightful but just because of the speed of getting going More...

The experience really couldn't have been any better - this is fine and exotic dining at a reasonable price (our bill came to £50 per-head). Highly recommended! More...
