Babur has been extending the boundaries of Indian cooking since 1985, its contemporary approach bolstered by a classy modern look featuring striking artworks, exposed brickwork and funky lighting. The cooking delivers a bracing canter through some original ideas, backed by spice-friendly wine recommendations for each dish. Quality ingredients are the bedrock, judiciously spiced and delivered with well-dressed presentation. Lively starters run to quail breast with black sesame seed, green papaya salad and sweet chilli, followed, perhaps, by seared Gressingham duck with braised cabbage, clove, and sweet and sour plum sauce. Finish with an East-meets-West dessert of spiced apricot and fig crumble.
