Babu's Special Service

As the name suggests, this is a total take out restaurant which you will always find busy and with a long line up. It is self explanatory that the food is good, service is quick and great with extremely reasonable prices. There is a lot of variety that you could pick from. You may either get a thali (veg/non veg) or try the south indian food. Kottu roti is my top favorite as it is very fulfilling and has lots of vegetables. The service method is really convenient as one server is allocated to each customer in the line up who goes through the whole process from ordering, packing to billing. The only thing that I wish that could improve was if there was more room in the restaurant and if they had delivered orders other than catering.

Above average joint!

Babus is a take out place that specializes in south indian cuisine.

When you enter the place you find that on your right is where all the hot food dishes are and more towards your left all the fried snacks and sweet dishes .

I was looking for some late lunch. I looked around and saw they had an all day lunch special. 2 vegetarian curries and a meat curry on rice for under 6$. The gentleman behind the counter was patient as I was perusing all their option. I was surprised at the selection they had. I had never seen so much seafood under a hot lamp. They had crab, shrimp and fish. It was around 4 so there wasn’t much left on the hot plate. I ended up getting some mutton curry along with some aloo mutter and a squash curry. I noticed the guys were amazingly patient. There was a couple ahead of me who had a lot of question and required a lot of samples. They were happy to help out. I also grabbed onto a meat roll as I always do when I go to these kind of joints.

All in all the food was decent. Not the best south Indian I’ve ever had but great value. The mutton gravy that came with the curry was outstanding. The meat itself not so much. The mutter paneer was great in flavor. The squash was a bit more on the bland side. I had some leftover after two sittings.
