Pathetic and slow service Had to wait more than an hour to receive a simple order of Masala Dosa. The restaurant prioritized orders from online platform while keeping the walk-in guests waiting. Staff has no sense of customer service. Clearly not a well managed operation

This restaurant was the best indian restaurant in vietname I visited. Food tasted real and authentic as well as being super tasty. I accidentally ordered a dish beyond my spice level and the staff were so helpful and accommodating and were able to reduce the...spice level after my tongue was on fire. Plenty of water refills to make sure I was ok. The dish was so good as well. Would definitely recommend visiting for a break from Vietnamese foodMore

Genuinely the best Indian we’ve ever eaten. We ordered the eggplant masala and mango and fish curries - the flavours were perfect. Service was lovely and super attentive, and the complimentary rice puddings for dessert were delicious. Everything was so good we came back again....We will forever remember this meal and dream of it when we’re home, and we can’t wait to come back here on our next trip to HCMC.More

Amazing food and service. Highly recommend if you are in Ho Chi Minh City and craving good Indian food, masala chai, coffee, fresh smoothie. Learn some Hindi too if you are lucky.

Consistently the best Indian restaurant I've been to over the last 9-10 years. The one in District 2 isn't as good but the original one in D1 is amazing. Good service and great food (also really nice Indian coffee)

Been here few times, comfortable setting, friendly service, some of the best Indian food I’ve had in Saigon, especially the southern Indian dishes, they add curry leaves to a lot of the food, nice authentic touch which differentiates this place from other Indian restaurants around.

This is top quality. The mezzanine level is one of several seating options. The menu is genuine Indian and the dessert is complimentary. Service is perfect. Times are tough at the moment for the restaurant business. This one deserves to succeed.

My husband and I came here twice and it be more in the future. The food was great especially the garlic naan. The chef listened to the customer well when he did the really good “extra crispy” garlic naan for us. Staffs were friendly and...kept asking us about the meal which we barely see in Vietnam. The place is a little bit small but cozy. We strongly recommend the naan, masala and chicken tikka.More

Clean environment. Great customer service. All the staffs are very attentive. Food is amazing. Highly recommend it. Everything we ordered were great. The highlight of the night were cheese naan, paneer, and veg curry. I wan't a big fan of Indian food but Baba's Kitchen...changed my mind. Every dish is served a portion of two people, I would suggest to go with more people so you can try more flavor of curries. Will definitely go back for more delights!! 非常推薦,很好吃的印度料理。店員態度非常好,環境乾淨(在范五老街非常難得),點的cheese naan, paneer, 各式咖哩都非常好吃,沒有一樣不喜歡。一份咖哩是兩人份,建議可以多人一起前往,能享用到不同口味的咖哩。More
