My friend and I saw the reviews on trip advisor and thought we should at least have a shirt made since we were in Hoi An. I didn't know quite what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. Kylie - who helped me order my shirt - was not at all pushy but still managed to be incredible helpful; seeing... More

My fiancé and I went to Aobaba for suits and dresses while in Hoi an. Extremely happy with the service and the product. The lovely staff were very helpful when choosing the right fabric and style of dresses for me. We all know the dresses look great on the models in the magazine but the staff were great with helping... More

We stumbled across this place by accident! There are so many tailors in Hoi An, it's a bit mind blowing!!! My husband wanted some suits made and we had been told to not go for the cheapest, as you get what you pay for. This place was a little more than some, but still very reasonably priced. The quality of... More

Upon arrival we were partially sceptical on the idea of tailoring in Vietnam based on our experience of Hong Kong tailors. Although we did expect good craftsmanship, we were always concerned about the general styling. However, what we loved about Aobaba was the willingness to keep making alterations night after night until we were 100% satisfied. Seeing that they weren't... More

We were recommended Aobaba' by a friend when we went to Hoi An. The service was excellent and the suits are premium. We got them sent home and they arrived before we even finished our holiday! We will be back!

I was recommended Aobaba by our tour guide whilst in Hoi An. All staff were extremely helpful from the first encounter of selecting the items & fabrics, fittings and finally delivery of the goods. Sally assisted me from the beginning in choosing appropriate fabrics and designs and also conducted all my fittings- it was nice to have continuity in this... More

Thank you Aobaba for making the less than memorable experience with Ms Forget Me Not tailor something relegated to the back of head. I am very satisfied with how my clothes fitted and how they turned up. It was refreshing to feel how accomodating the team was to our alterations. I will return although.....I do feel that materials could be... More

I was recommended AoBaBa by a relative who has lived in Hoi An for a few years, and it was wonderful to get some insider advice as a first time visitor! Right from the beginning I was so impressed with the service at AoBaBa. I dealt with Kim who was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made me feel... More

Three years ago, on my first visit to Hoi An, my daughter (who lives there) took me to her favourite tailor shop, AoBaBa. I had three copies made of my favourite shirt, and a copy made of a favourite skirt. I was delighted with the results and three years on, all four items are still in great condition, despite frequently... More

After a number of tailoring experiences in Asia (and Vietnam) and quite fussy expectations, I have finally found a tailor that I recommend and will go back to. My mum and I took a number of items to be copied, and also had some replicated but with quite a few changes. The variety and quality of fabrics was amazing, and... More
