Definitely a favorite restaurant of mine. I get cravings for their Butter Chicken and Lamb Vindaloo. The food is always delicious and the service is great. Can't go wrong with anything you order here! It's all so good! :) thanks babas! See you again soon! :)

Restaurant is centrally located on Baker Street. Ordered Chicken Biryani and Lamb Rogan Josh, which is fairly standard Indian options. Not in this case, both were beautifully presented and the sauce in the lamb was very rich and tasty. Wonderful fresh yogurt salad helped calm the spices. Very good service and great value. Enjoy!!

I grew up in Nelson, and this is one of my favourite restaurants here. When I go for Indian food in other places, I wish it was Baba's. It all tastes like real food, like nothing came out of a packet or a mix, and I like that a lot. My celiac friend easily found gluten free food she could... More

Nelson has plenty of restaurants to chose from, but if you are craving Indian cuisine - go here! The restaurant itself is cute but quite plain. The lady of the house has suggestions, and questions for you as well, as to what degree of hotness you like, etc. At first, we thought the portions small for the $$$, but the... More
