“A stalwart of the Forest Hill dining scene that’s worth a trip into SE London!”. For over 20 years, this surprisingly “exotic” modern Indian has “had people beating a path to its door” on account of its “delightful service” and some of London’s best Indian cooking – “eye-catching”, “subtly-spiced and aromatic” dishes “with intense and unique flavours”.
It’s “worth the trek” across south London to this “sensory experience” in Forest Hill. The modern Indian cuisine – amongst London’s best – has huge “subtlety of flavour” and the “unfailingly friendly and positive staff” are “exceptional”.
“Long live Babur!” – this “stand-out” stalwart remains one of SE London’s most notable stars, with an “ever-evolving” menu of “cracking Indian fusion dishes” served by “lovely, friendly and personal” staff in an “understated” and “lively” setting.
“It’s curry Jim, but not as we know it!”; this “fabulously inventive” Honour Oak Park fixture is “in a different league from your standard Indian” and – despite a fractional slip in ratings this year – remains one of SE London’s top destinations.
Babur Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The fixed price tasting menu with wine pairings is well thought through and excellent every time. The service is attentive and the ambience just right. A real pleasure to visit and has not disappointed on any single occasion. On my most recent visit the menu comprised of: Scallop with Prawn, Chicken tikka and cottage cheese,red deer with quail breast and finally the outstanding 100 hours marinated steamed shoulder of lamb. The marinated steamed shoulder was absolutely fantastic."
