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.

Wow what amazing Indian food and delicious secret sambal recipes. We had the Mutton Korma, Chicken Vindaloo and some Naan and Paratha. Simply divine and very charming staff. A Saigon must-visit!

We ate here twice while in Saigon as it was so good. The staff were so friendly and made sure we didn't order too much food as well as keeping our water topped up frequently. The food was some of the best Indian food I have had, really tasty and a good use of flavours. The masala naan and butter... More

Truly amazing food. The staff are friendly and professional. Complimentary water throughout the meal is definitely appreciated. We returned again during our stay and it was just as delicious. We even asked for the recipe and the chef carefully wrote it out for us so we can attempt to make it back in Europe (Dragon Chicken Curry). Definitely recommend!!

Baba's is a fantastic little Indian restaurant. I have had the pleasure of eating here twice now during my trip to Vietnam and enjoyed both occasions! The food was delicious and the staff were excellent. I'd recommend it anybody who's looking for a good Indian meal at an affordable price.

Indian food in Australia can be soooo very expensive. It was great to enjoy a fish curry for such a great price. The owner seems very lovely and passionate about his establishment. A great place if you're all pho'd out.
