The Babur restaurant is situated in Forest Hill in southeast London, and is extremely popular with locals who enjoy the warm welcome, excellent service and reasonable prices that the restaurant specialises in. Expert in contemporary British dishes, and by that Babur mean a multicultural snapshot of modern Britain, and also delivering superb Indian meals, this unique restaurant is sure to appeal to all types of tastebuds.
For healthy eaters, Babur is a haven. Using only the freshest herbs and spices, the tastiest vegetables and organically-reared meat produce, all dishes at Babur are cooked thoroughly in a low fat manner, delivering a hefty nutrient kick to accompany the delectable flavours that abound in every dish.
Starters at Babur are exhaustive, innovative and deliciously tasty. Some notable additions to the menu include red sandalwood ostrich, tamarind-glazed quail breast, Yorkshire deer garnished with fennel seeds, achari lamb tikka and the sublime multani soole, which is chargrilled paneer with aniseed and papaya chutney.
Save some space for the mains, though, because Babur specialises in exceptional curries that are cooked to perfection and served with aplomb while, for the more adventurous diner, there are a mass of other specials to choose from. Why not plump for the garlic prawns on masala uttapam, a twice-marinated prawn dish served on a bed of rice cake? Or perhaps try the scorching buffalo vindaloo or the vegetarian-friendly hara bara kofta? Well-cooked sides, naans, rices and desserts are also present and correct, as are Indian beers, French wines and spirits from all over the world.
