I have to say I bought a dress which was fantastic - fit perfectly, lovely material and the staff were attentive however I think there were children being used by the shop which I only realised after I had paid the 50% deposit. This isn't the case for another tailor I used (at least not that I saw and I... More

We were recommended AoBaBa by new friends but we still checked out a few other tailors whilst touring the streets of Hoi An. Then we walked into AoBaBa and what a professional business it was. Tsao was the first staff member we met & what a welcoming impression she imparted to us. From then on each day we returned for... More

I got 4 or 5 shirts made, about $20 each I believe it was. I buy a lot of $125+ shirts, but these are hands down the best quality (I still wear them and bought them 2 years ago!) and are best fit as they were made to measure. Amazed how these shirts survive my dreadful machine wash skills too,... More

I was looking for a tailor to make some nice dresses and tops and via Tripadvisor I found Aobaba. A lot of thanks to Linda for professional help and friendly assistance with the 3 very different and wonderful and 2 tops. I also appreciated coming to the store with the welcoming and nice atmosphere. I will return next time I... More

It was my first time getting ANYTHING tailored, and Aobaba certainly impressed me. I got two dresses tailored and even though the end result left something to be desired (for the more complicated one) it was really because I ran out of time to keep going back and getting it adjusted; given that I've only been there for 1 fitting,...

This was our 2nd visit to Ao Ba Ba, and again it was a joy to do business there. We purchased personal clothes as well as a many items for our retail shop in Melbourne. I'm told it's not the cheapest, but after my son and girlfriend experimented with a cheaper place, who did get it right in the end,... More

My husband and I had some exquisite clothes made here- some copies which were perfect and some original designs. The fabric range is beautiful and the quality of the workmanship is second to none. They were all made overnight- approximately 10 items each. Absolutely impressive. Thank you for the fun, exciting and very happy experience. I am thrilled to have... More

I had so many clothes made here because the materials they stock are gorgeous and the prices are very good. The only guide the staff have to make the clothes are from pictures which is an amazing skill. The staff can't look after you enough and always have a lovely cold towel and bottle of water waiting for you. The... More

My girlfriend and I had six suits made as well as some other assorted items like waistcoats and ties. We're very pleased overall with the final quality of the product. We both have unique body types, and the fit for everything was perfect and looked fantastic, especially given the cost. The staff are super friendly and helpful, and the whole... More
