I love Indian food but I never ever go because it’s just too heavy for me most of the time. I have heard amazing things about Babu Ji, and finally managed to snag a reservation during restaurant week! The second I walked into the new location in Union Square, I knew I would be reeking of Tandori the rest of the night. Good job I made plans to go out and wore my tightest pair of jeans and bodysuits- big mistake. We had a choice of an appetizer, entree and a desert. I was with 4 people so we were able to try 1 of everything from the set menu. The entrees were incredibleeeee and the garilc naan and basmati rice were to die for. It’s the perfect meal for a hangover. The space is also very modern and chic, good for a 3 or 4th date when you know you won’t be going out after. Next time I have a craving for Indian, i’ll deff be hitting up Babu Ji, ideally on a hungover date with my stretchy pants on.
