Good home cooking Indian style. Clean simple establishment with a varied menu of Indian dishes. We enjoyed each dish with the help of the owner making selections with and for us. She was very accommodating with explanations of each dish and seasoning.

Ordered by phone for our meal which was ready in 20 minutes. Food was very good and suitably spicy. All their food is authentic Indian food.

This was not our first time to Baba’s and it won’t be the last! When we come to Nelson, Baba’s is a must. Great atmosphere, quick and friendly service and the food is fantastic. If you are looking for Indian food, stop in at Baba’s.

We visited in late August. Wonder butter chicken and curry dishes served in individual dishes. Naan was excellent.
