Ranjit Singh, former chef at Carlton North’s Kent Hotel, manages Babu Ji with his business partner, Mani Waraich. These two Indian powerhouses offer patrons an exciting menu that goes beyond average Indian street food. The restaurant has a minimalist decor, and is bright and welcoming both day and night. Grab some friends and indulge in a spicy Indian feast.
The dishes use traditional Indian ingredients and techniques in tasty new ways. Matar ki tikki is an outstanding entree to begin your meal. A garlic-infused green pea and broccoli croquette is deep-fried to perfection and served with delicious curry sauce; a pickled gooseberry on top adds the finishing touch. One of the most surprising dishes on the menu is Goan duck leg, which is well dressed and fragrant. Enhancing the beautifully cooked duck meat is harmonious pumpkin and cinnamon sauce.
PSST! If you feel like Indian food but don’t want a sit-down meal, Babu Ji has a large takeaway menu.
