Babur is a comfortable stylish restaurant with contemporary ethnic feel using traditional Indian arts and crafts in a modern way. Exposed brick walls and ducting, bare American walnut tables. While the style is relaxed we are serious about our food and drinks offerings

Style of cooking

We try to present traditional Indian dishes in a way that suits our customers, so we have reduced oil/ghee content. We now import our spices directly from India to give livelier flavours.
At the same our chefs make combinations from across India based on appealing tastes and textures than strict adherence to regional traditions.

    Great restaurant, think this is another South London gem. Went here for an occasion meal, and treated myself to the tasting menu with wine pairings. Getting a cocktail to start with the currytini is my new favourite cocktail, my friends also were raving about theirs. The food was great, really really enjoyed, after each course we'd be asking what's that spice, flavour the food was super tasty. For me what really makes a difference is good service, it was warm, welcoming, relaxed and professional, each cocktail, dish explained, the notes added to the booking were communicated to the staff. All this combined great food n drink made for a great way to spend my birthday. I can't wait to go back and check out the rest of the menu.

    Lovely restaurant in Honor Oak, one of our favourite places to go. Food is always delicious, great vegan choices and staff are friendly and professional

    Not a great experience tbh. So firstly if you’re Vegan then just avoid. There was no curry option only the Tali or the Dosa which seems pretty poor. I had the Tali and it was bang average however it was £22!!! (Check out Govindas for a great Tali). Yeh so the food was average - the Dahl was really bland actually. The table next to us had 2 young children which was very cute but the waiter was really rude to them saying they needed to buy at least one main per person and there was a “minimum spend”. It was really bad and made us uncomfortable. Why on earth would you turn away custom like that and thre place wasn’t even busy.
