We frequent this place for traditional Andhra tiffins (snack / breakfast items). Though the taste and quality varied over several years, still the hotel is popular in Vijayawada. Food is OK and as it is a small joint, nothing special about ambience. It's a fairly OK place offering average ambience and good food quality and taste.

I visit this place once in a week.The taste of the food is awesome. When any one hear about this place,the first thing comes to our mind is Idly.When ever we eat Idly our mind automatically remembers about Babai Hotel.That's the taste of the Idly here.Remaining Tiff ins are also nice but not up-to the mark of Idly.

Wow - what Idlis, just cant get over it, too good is still not getting it right, super soft idlis, the best ever. Nothing much to say about the place, its one of the oldest establishments, dont expect a fine dine or a regular place, just ignore all that and just go there to have the idlis. You will not... More

This eatery is associated with the city for many years. The chutney and karappadi with idli give it distinct flavour along with ghee and butter. Dosa too is a must try. And also the upma. Filter coffee lovers have a reason to visit as well. One of the must try places of you happen to be in this noisy town... More

Not up to the mark. No receiving of guests and no neatness. Nothing is there like old Babay hotel. Taste is also bad. There are so many good hotels now in vijayawada.
