    Discovered Babaji's during lockdown when they started their extreme delivery to the Hills. We were pleasantly surprised, vowed to visit when possible, which we did today and as expected, we were not disappointed!! Even better in their restaurant.

    The food is always good quality, and the staff welcoming. We love the dosa and mango lasso and for a short time feel transported to southern India.

    We always enjoy Babaji. It’s such a cheerful welcoming place and the food is delicious. Two for one thali plate last night made it very good value. That’s every Wednesday for a month. My favourite is the chicken thali plate. And the fresh plain naan is to die for!

    Every time I go to this little restaurant in Belgrave it’s alway awesome, friendly staff and the food is amazing!! It was my sons birthday and when the cake came out the whole restaurant joined in to sing happy birthday!!! Great to see after the struggle of 2020 that they have made it through to 2021!

    Loved this place! They had a staffing glitch right on opening time but didn't miss a beat. Friendly and apologetic where there was no need to be. Great food at a great price. We'll be back for more..!

    Always had great food but this time the poppadoms were a bit limp. Everything else was delicious. Our 1 year is a great fan of the dosa and dhal. Great, friendly service.

    Fantastic family dinner at Babajis last night. Service was friendly and accommodating, portion sizes were great and the flavours were just beautiful. We have enjoyed takeaway from here a few times before, but it was our first time eating in and the quality we experienced in the restaurant last night really exceeded our expectations. All kids and adults very happy with our dining experience. Thankyou Babajis.
