restaurant review: babur

Restaurant: Babur
Location: 273 Queen St. West, Toronto, Ontario M5V 1Z9
Telephone: 416-599-7720

Meal type: Dinner

Average price per person: $26-$60

What I ordered (shared between 2 people):
- Vegetable Samosas (crisp patties stuffed with peas and potatoes
- Butter Chicken (boneless chicken marinated in yogurt and spices barbequed in Tandoor and cooked in cream sauce)
- Mutton saagwala (lamb marinated in yogurt and spices, stir fried and cooked with spinach and sauce)


We were walking along Queen Street looking for a place to eat, when we came along Babur. There is so much to choose from on Queen St. when it comes to restaurants, but having customers inside is always a good indication of a decent restaurant. And there was a constant flow of satisfied looking diners the whole time we were at Babur (including us).

The restaurant is clean and simple (although I’d get rid of the plaid tablecloths) and the service was very fast and attentive.

The samosas were amazing and the perfect appetizers. Our dinner was good (not the absolute best we've had, but definitely a close second I think). We weren't sure if we had ordered enough, but we were stuffed and didn't even have room for dessert! I'm glad we've found another great Indian restaurant to frequent!
