Reasonably priced and in a fun neighborhood. Try the Daal Tarka. A good family choice for an Indian restaurant.

Babur, a restaurant that has met with much praise from Toronto's savvy food critics, is renowned for its excellent (and extensive list of) tandoori dishes. Taking its name from a late fifteenth century Emperor and founder of the Mughal Dynasty, Babur prides itself on its use of traditional preparation methods and pure ingredients (many of its signature, Northern Indian dishes are prepared in a tandoor oven).
Well-known for its fabulous wait staff and high quality food, Babur offers its guests formal service at casual prices. Even better, its central location makes it an easy stop for hungry visitors exploring Toronto's Downtown, Chinatown and Queen West neighbourhoods. Entrees (including plenty of vegetarian options) begin at $8.95 — come hungry, eat well.
