I've been here quite a few times and always worth booking a table as it's busy most days. Take a look at the menu and you will rarely see anything similar. Quite pricey but the food is excellent and very good service too. The only...More

Absolutely outstanding Indian restaurant. Spotless interior with a good modern decor, lovely ambiance and comfortable spacious seating. Fabulous food - menu has wine suggestions but also serve beers, mocktails, cocktails and soft drinks. Special diet dishes available. Must recommend the Lucknowi chicken biryani for £16.00....More

I don't go to Babur except for the occasional special treat. But once again a wonderful experience. I had the sea bass, it was cooked to perfection. All accompanied by a local porter ale. As you might expect not cheap, but equally not exorbitant, Role...More

Babur serves Indian cuisine with flair and fusion. Good ambience and attentive service. Not surprised it has a Michielen star ! Will definitely return.

Really delicious and creative dishes... Lovely flavours and a menu like no other south Asian restaurant in the area. So glad we finally got round to trying it... we won't take as long to visit again.

Absolutely fantastic dinner. Some of the most succulent chicken I've ever had! So much more than a "curry" - absolute pleasure to eat here. Can't recommend highly enough.

Hi Katherine We're a bit perplexed as well. Ideally it should come up automatically. Try writing the review without putting in the location. We're sure that should help. Let us know if it doesn't. Thank you. A
