119 Brockley Rise, Forest Hill, LONDON, SE23 1JP
Babur is not hard to spot: just look for the life-size tiger prowling the roof. Inside the look is classy and modern with striking artworks and funky lighting. The cooking delivers an adventurous canter through the contemporary Indian idiom, while wines are spice-friendly, with recommendations included on the menu. Quality ingredients - many not common in Indian cooking - and judicious spicing are graced with well-dressed presentation. Chargrilled monkfish tikka in spiced coconut broth is a lively starter, followed by meltingly tender spice-crusted shoulder of lamb with beetroot rice, or there might be rabbit, pot-roasted with mustard and ginger. Finish with an East-meets-West dessert of saffron and pistachio praline kulfi.
