A takeout worth putting on speed dial. Tandooris and naan to write home about. Rich, creamy, and spicy (or not spicy) as you want them to be. I can't go a month without a meal from Baba's. Highly, highly recommended!

First off, you have to realize this is located in backpacker paradise area of HCMC. I would suspect that the people that think this place is excellent Indian food have never eaten any GOOD Indian food. The place is a dump, the person that waited on us was an arrogant Punjabi Indian, which having a real Indian person with us,... More

Wow! First, let me state that I am very disappointed to learn of your experience. And while it may be the case that the many positive reviewers and the many expats--both Indian and Western--who regularly eat at Baba's are wrong, I suspect it's more likely that you caught us on a bad day. Judging by your remarks, it sounds like... More

We ordered: chiken tikka massala, one of the mouton's, 2 Kashmiri rice, one garlic naan plus the drinks and paid 386.000d with 5% discount after filling the survey. You may have to... More

Baba's is awesome! It has great Indian food made with fresh ingredients. I've eaten there three times in three days! The service is great with a very friendly and attentive staff. This is the best Southern Asian, or Indian food that I've had since I went to a "four star" Indian Restaurant in Downtown Washington,D.C. after reading that the President... More

The food: i had my best naan bread ever. The dishes aswell are just the richest, tastiest and yummiest indian you can imagine. If you have the... More

The service was really good and the staff really smily. They continually checked if everything was fine and kept refilling our water glasses. Loved the way the menu was written; with character and sense of humour! The food was really good, but not the best I've ever had.
