Bought two coats from there for a friend overseas. The staff were fantastic- even found a model the same size and stature a my friend to try on coats. Coats were beautifully tailored.

I was a little skeptical about getting some clothes tailored, so I started by ordered one tailored shirt ($25-$35 depending on the quality of fabric). Staff were friendly and not too pushy.

We visited Hoi An last month. We arrived with a few garments we wanted copying. We chose Aobaba randomly, it looks very good from the street. We met Kim and Kylie who helped us make our fabric choices and who were at all times lovely to do business with. Our original garments were mid price range clothes from popular British... More

I ended up at Aobaba Tailor and it turned out to be a good decision. Although its a bit high and not negotiable in prices they do serve good service and quality fittings. Service staff girl named Kim helped me choose a fabric and helped me get measurement. She was so good in her job that she knew what king... More

On a recent visit I dealt with Kylie in Aobaba and her professionalism and speed of service was second to none. She was a perfectionist in making sure I was completely happy with the end result and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The clothes are all perfect and I am very happy with the end result

Visited Aobaba after reading great reviews. I had two dresses made and my boyfriend had two suits made. We found the service to be wonderful, the prices to be good and most importantly, the clothing to be high quality and brilliantly made. We will definitely return to Aobaba if we ever find ourselves back in Hoi An. Thanks for everything... More

Ly took my measurements and tweaked a dress design to suit my proportions. Ly was very thorough and the dress was made in just a day in the fabric of my choice - I love it. The shop overall seemed well organised with pleasant staff. Not the cheapest we found but not the most expensive either. Quality being priority I... More

Made 3 pairs of shoes, 1 bag, 2 skirts and 1 suit between my parents and I in Mar 2017. Was deciding between Yaly and AoBaBa but chose AoBaBa cos of a friendly lady outside the shop and the shop looked more welcoming. From initial price quotes, AoBaBa seemed cheaper. Summary of review: Quality of tailoring is good. Price is... More

When you're in Hoi An, you'll see a LOT of tailors....too many really. And you'll be solicited endlessly. We were thinking of having some things made, but how do you decide. Finally we met some people at our hotel one day (in the pool), that had recently had a lot of clothes made and were very happy with the end... More

We wanted a particular fabric for our sport jacket and managed to find it here after checking out a few tailors. We were served by Lynda. We were quoted 105usd for the sport jacket and we end up ordering one more vest for 55usd and two trousers for 35usd each. We also purchase a ready-made tie for 5 usd. We... More
