We needed some food for a group - and decided to try Babaji's café. The food was delicious - everyone in the group raved about the taste and wanted more. The prices are reasonable for the food we were getting - cheaper than other places...More

Description
We do ‘Indian’ a little differently, specialising in authentic South Indian dosa, and Mumbai street food. Expect village style curries on our daily thali using the most authentic ingredients we can find. From snakebean thoran to kallu shappu slow cooked beef, we proudly bring a touch of tropical Kerala to Belgrave. Quirky, colourful and extremely authentic, with the shrill of Puffing Billy in the background; you could just about be mistaken for thinking you're in Kerala's spice mountains!
