Readers applaud this “gem” of an Indian restaurant for its “artfully chosen” decor, “superb” cocktails and “exceptional” food. Babur is a long-standing neighbourhood favourite, where furnishings have become increasingly stylish over the years (currently, bare brick, tiled flooring, low-hanging lights and wooden partitions holding vibrant flower displays) and the Sunday buffet remains consistently popular. Food encompasses both northern and southern Indian cookery, so you’ll find clove-smoked lamb chops from the tandoor, as well as wild mushroom and pea dosa. But the new menu also contains a healthy dose of innovation. Dishes such as steamed spice-crusted shoulder of lamb with beetroot rice combine prime British ingredients with bold Punjabi flavours. Ostrich is marinated in a fierce Rajasthani masala, and even goat gets a look-in: slow-cooked to perfection and transformed with aromatic spices. To match these dishes, Master of Wine Peter McCombie has put together a list of food-friendly bottles.

Went to Babur on Saturday for our wedding anniversary, we booked a table but was placed at the back by the entrance to the kitchen so each time the door opened it was very cold and thre was a draught.
The restuarant was very busy, the food was not good didn't meet our expectation, we also waited a while to be served but the nail in the coffin was as we came to the end of our meal the waiter came over asked us if we had finished as he had people waiting to be seated. I have never had a waiter rush me to get out of a restuarant before and it was very uncomfortable. We will not be going there again, I would not recommmend ti to anyone.
