“Good food and value for money!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Our family had a dinner at Baba´s Saturday evening. We reserved a table in advance and had the table on the second floor. We ordered 4 differnect dishes for main and all of them had a very good taste even though 1 of the dishes was a little bit "too over cocked". The service from the waiter was very good.

“Delicious, well-priced and really spicy Indian food - great!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Following the good reviews on TripAdvisor we chose Baba’s Kitchen for our Lunch in HCMC and we were greatly satisfied.
The staff is friendly and helpful but not pushy or annoying. We chose two chicken curries (the one with the coconut milk and one of the spicy ones, each about 100.000VND) and one veggie curry (the other spicy option, I can’t remember the name, about 50.000VND). All foods were very delicious and indeed spicy what I appreciate when it is written so on the menu.
Free water, four different sauces (mint-yoghurt, pickled mango, pickled carrots & onions and sweet mango chutney) and a small yoghurty dessert come with the dishes.
After finishing our meal we were handed two cards on which we could review our experience (3 questions) and therefore were granted 5% discount on our bill.
We both agree that this has been our best meal in Vietnam and highly recommend visiting Baba’s Kitchen.

“Very good Indian food and very friendly service”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We enjoyed our meals at Bab's kitchen so much that we went there again – even though usually we wouldn't go looking for Indian food on a trip to Vietnam...!
The service was attentive and friendly, the food excellent!!
Also big thanks to tripadvisor users for pointing out a great retaurant for us – in a street full of tourist's bars where you usually might not expect and try it.

“Arrogant waiter”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Read all the good reviews so was looking forward to it, beer good, older man taking orders very good, bit dissappoited by flavours, nice but nothing to rave about, spoilt by them being busy, and trying to move people on to fil up next customers. At one point younger waiter came up whilst my friend was still eating and just said finished!' no we haven't, could do with few manners, won't go back!
