We had the Masala chicken and Butter chicken and both were amazingly yummy. What a treat! Definitely combine it with the garlic naam bread, so good! Service was very friendly, and the complimentary water kept coming. Prices are very reasonable (just a little above the average backpacker budget) considering the quality of food. Loved it!

I came over at Baba's after having searched in trip advisor, bored of 2-week of noodles and rice. Baba's is simply delicious, original indian flavors, staff is warm and welcoming. Negative: position and atmonsphere. Too much loud in front of One restaurant's street to caotic.

We got lost looking for this place as the tripadvisor directions took us to an address which doesn't exist. It's on Bui Vien, which is a hectic backpackers and hostels area full of sports bars and banging music. If that's not your thing (as it's certainly not ours) don't let it put you off dinner at this great place. I... More

Baba's is amazing. The food is fantastic and the staff are really friendly and attentive. It is a little expensive if you are on a backpacker's budget but it really is a treat.

I'm not a specialist of Indian cuisine but what we got was good. A lot of choice available. Ask for spiciness as it is a bit plain without it. The service was excellent and derserves a distinction.

We had an amazing dinner at baba's! The food was fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. My only criticism is that I asked for it spicy, and was told I couldn't handle it. Then the food came and there was NO chilli in it at all. Luckily they corrected the problem by bringing us a bowl of fresh chilli paste and... More

We came here, craving good Indian food and this place had great reviews. The area where it is located is predominantly backpacker district, so it was hectic just finding it. The food was pretty average, and so was the place.
