Ba Chi is a smaller restaurant in a very friendly neighborhood. I got their rare flank pho & pork belly spring rolls. The spring rolls were delicious with an amazing peanut sauce. There were 2 rolls and they were pretty large. The pho came in a very generous serving that I could not finish. The pho was warm and flavorful... More

Loved this little gem! I've been vegan for a few months now, and my boyfriend eats anything! It was awesome for both of us. The crispy brussel sprouts with Kim chi...amazing! The bacos, coconut curry tofu....amazing! And I'm not a huge tofu fan! I only wish I knew it was a byo cause I would have brought a bottle with... More

I have gotten their ramen, which was delicious, but you really can't beat their bacos. They have a expansive menu of them along with lots of other great options. Not too much of an atmosphere but an awesome place.

Yes yes. Ba Chi did not disappoint. I was delighted when I arrived here and I was seated on the enclosed patio on a nice (but rainy) evening. It made for a nice atmosphere, even though it was a little humid. We started with a couple of pork spring rolls. While they weren't the best I have ever had, they... More

I liked the creamy spicy pho boy so much that I went a second time to try out their rice noodle salad bowl. A disclaimer I am a vegetarian and loved the place. The tofu in combination with other ingredients was amazing. I would recommend this place for a easy night out. Wish they had more out door seating.

I came here because Satsuma Cafe was closed and it's right across the street. The food was absolutely amazing! They have bao tacos, or bacos. I wish I had the chance to try all of them. I ended up getting the beef sate and catfish Bacos, kim chi fries, and the fried oysters with spinach dip appetizer. This is one... More

This off-the-beaten-path restaurant (or canteen, as named) was a complete surprise to my taste buds. Let me first start by saying no one goes to NOLA to eat Vietnamese food, but you SHOULD! Situated near Tulane University, most students know of this well kept secret. Small, but clean, excellent service and food. Try a BACO (a tapa sized taco like... More

They have really good pho in a low key environment. Ba Chi will make space for a party of nearly any size so definitely bring all your friends.

We stumbled in here as a mix of vegetarian, meat eating and vegan people and we all LOVED it. The tofu sandwiches and bacos were delicious. Also very friendly staff! Bon appetite!

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
