About Babur

You’re never far away from an Indian restaurant in London, and whether your tastes are for the South Indian specialities of Southall, the tandoori joints beloved by the Pakistani community or the curry cafes of Brick Lane, you can always be sure of finding something to suit. There are as many good as bad restaurants, however, and often a lackadaisical approach can set in after a few years in the curry game. Babur may have been in business on Brockley Rise in Forest Hill since 1985 but there is no chance of complacency kicking in: they are always striving to bring more and more to the metaphorical and literal table. Their take on the genre is altogether more sophisticated and upmarket, with a menu that expands on the canon to include a huge range of regional specialities and lesser known delicacies. Alongside the classic curries and tandoori tikka meats, one can also sample the likes of quail masala, Rajasthani buffalo and rabbit rezala, to mention but a few. Book a table now.

I can't stop going here, It's one of the best modern Indian restaurants in London. Service is impeccable, drinks outstanding, the location is not easy to get to but it's worthy.

Excellent service and outstanding cuisine. The tasting menu with matched wines is always worth having. The cocktails are also superb with an exotic twist. I cant recommend this place highly enough.
