Recently I have been enjoying the lunchtime thali dish served by Baba's Kitchen. I am not a vegetarian so I always order the thali that comes with chicken curry. It is great value for $5: bread, rice, popadum, several bowls of tasty veg, chicken curry and a sweet dessert. They often ask me if I want more (at no extra... More

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.

Its pretty good - it seems to be the place where ex pats go to eat so that is saying something. The food was excellent and would definitely return!

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
