We visited in the evening in the week and had the 'Early Bird' offer which was on all evening. My niece is a vegan and had plenty to choose from on the menu. She thoroughly enjoyed her meal. I had the chicken tikka to start and the butter chicken with pilou rice to follow after a lovely selection of chutneys... More

Again a short time a young man came and took our orders with questions about timing of our starters and our dinners. Very... More

Thought we would try a family meal out on Christmas Day for a change. Chose here for its choice of both Indian and traditional Christmas menu. We weren't disappointed. The food and service were fantastic. Going out of their way at a very busy time to accommodate some special requests. Will definitely be booking again next year.

The place was very busy and I can see why. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly. I'd not hesitate to return or to recommend Barbar.

Food was really good but service was questionable. We had a large group (26) so expected a bit of a wait but some of the waiters had a terrible attitude. A number of people waited for 20 min for chips even though curry on table. When asked where chips and naans were we were told if you don't like it... More

We are regulars at Baba Elephant. Why? The standard of food never changes, the staff don't change and the manager always makes us feel special. If you go at five thirty you can choose an 'early bird' special and it's well worth it. Not too expensive if you go later! Try it!
