My favorite place for indian food here in saigon. Not sure if it is authentic but they are really tasty. One of my favorites are stir fried paneers and mango and fish curry, just the right combination. Service is very attentive and well-trained, good attitude. They also offer free dessert which I think is nice. Last but not least, they... More

I've been here several times, alone and with friends. The food is great, the staff are friendly and the prices are quite good. The location is also great for backpackers.

I always enjoy having Indian in places I visit and this place was another great find, the only regret is we ordered too much but it was very good value and taste.

There are several very good Indian restos in town, and Babas really is my personal favorite for the food and service. They remember me there, and have gone out of their way to make it a good experience. Robin, the manager there, has brought me some of his mother's own fish pickle! They ALWAYS come by and ask me if... More

We ordered food from baba's kitchen and it turned out to be disastrous. There are much better options available in district 1 when it comes to Indian food.

My girlfriend and I are big eaters of Indian Food and really love the rich flavors. Baba's Kitchen really lived up to that. We had 2 dishes, one which was chick pea masala and another was a chicken archary (I think it is spelled) which both were really good! We ordered one portion of rice which was enough to share....
