Babur - Forest Hill

119 Brockley Rise, Forest Hill, London, London, SE23 1JP
It's easy to spot this excellent neighbourhood Indian restaurant, by the life-size tiger on the roof - but the food on offer is the best of its type for miles around - and travels the culinary map of the sub-continent. The dining room is comfortable and tastefully decorated with original Indian art.

The menu changes throughout the year, but might include the likes of 'North South' - North Indian Mughul-style marinated King Prawns from the tandoor atop a South Indian Uttapam (flat rice bread); 'Bengali Beetroot Cutlets' or 'Spicy Crab Cakes' among the starters.

Perhaps, 'Batakh Ka Seena' (Ribs of Beef, roasted on the tandoor, then simmered with Goan spices); 'Gilt-Head Bream Malabar' (pan-fried marinated fillets served with Upma - Indian couscous) or 'Khargosh' (curried rabbit).

Side dishes, such as 'Gujarati Pumpkin' aren't to be missed.

Desserts include 'Tandoori Pineapple' (clove-smoked pineapple with sweet hung yoghurt) and home-made Kulfi (Indian-style iced cream).
