Amazing how this place is SOooo busy anytime- daytime, night and even LATE night.. Lineups even winter time--- customers are patiently waiting to buy.. from all walks of life even our dsitinguished OPPs.. (They expanded and renovated the place-- more modern.) Lots and lots of choices- hot meals, snacks and desserts.. They have combos, too.

It amazes me that this place is so busy. The food is cheap but you never know what you will get. The sambar is like water and there are many Indian restaurants that you can get a tastier meal for about the same price.

This is a fun place to go to if you're in the Scarboro Town Centre area, and feel like South Indian/Sri Lankan food. So much choice. I like their fresh aloo (potato) naan. Two of those plus a curry and it's my personal feast. Lots of veggie options.Friendly service. Decent prices. Lots of parking. Babu is strictly take-out.

One Saturday morning we decided to try out their breakfast combo which includes 2 each of dosa's, idli's and vada's along with a cup of coffee for $3.45. The place is a take out joint, so we came back home to have the breakfast. The coffee was delicious though and just the way we like it. We tried the breakfast... More

Ordered a lamb biriyani and chilli crab which was really good. The chettinad beef was a bit tough but tasty. Overall great food and clean environment. It is a take out place rather than dining.

Delightfully delicious takeout lunch special, under $6 that is large enough to share. Whatever the decor leaves to be desired ( they are currently under construction) the food beyond makes up up. The chicken Tikka Masala is a must try. The cabbage salad, eggplant, chickpea and green pea curries make excellent vegetarian options. The fresh from the oven garlic Naan... More

If anyone is looking to feed a lot of people for cheap then this is the place to go. Not only are the food priced very reasonably, it's also quite tasty. This is my first time coming here and I often see their coupons through the flyers. I finally decided to give this place a try when my friend recommended... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
