Have tasted sushi before as an appetizer but when our son introduced us to Baba was when I learned to love it! Have only been 3 or 4 times but what a treat to go through the menu and sample new choices each time. Have to say I have never tried anything I wouldn't reorder. The fish is fresh and... More

We were looking for a new Sushi place to try in Worcester County this past weekend and checked in on Trip Advisor. The reviews of this Sushi Restaurant were very good so we decided to give it a try. Set in a modest "little" house, on one of the busiest roads in Worcester you may drive right by. Glad we... More

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in Worcester. I go every month. Menu highlights are the Sumo Oysters Supreme w/ lemon, Tabasco, & caviar; the Celtic maki (spicy!), and the salmon roe. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and fast. The place is tiny & the back room is a little chilly on cold winter days. Try to sit in the front... More

We took our daughter to BaBa on the recommendation of her dorm roommate who lives in the area. To our surprise this little tiny place was really really good. Our waitress was attentive and provided great suggestions and we were not disappointed on any of our food. We would definitely go back..

So my friends met me out for my birthday for drinks. Gradually conversation turned to dinner. At first the plan was BBQ but suddenly talk of sushi came up from another table. I latched on to that idea immediately and off we went. I had been to BABA before and it remains one of the highest-regarded restaurants in Worcester. This... More

My son and I were visiting Worcester Polytech and looked online for a place with high ratings that was close by and found Baba. The sushi was absolutely delicious, the staff was friendly and the restaurant was small and really beautiful. Great meal and excellent service.

I've been here twice since I moved to the area about 3 months ago, and will continue to go there anytime I have a hankering for sushi. The prices are a little high, but acceptable for sushi. The food is very good, and the place has a good atmosphere. I had good service both times I went there. My first... More

The sushi is fantastic, without a doubt the freshest around and worth every penny... but the woman who served us (Kasia) tonight was more concerned about chatting with her co-workers at the bar then checking in on us. We went in for an early dinner and were the only customers dining in the restaurant. There was one other customer at... More
