At the tail end of our trip we were looking to change things up a bit and happened upon Baba's Kitchen. The food was delicious! It's a no frills space where the food is the star.

Visited with my family based on reviews and wasn't let down with quality and variety of food. Didn't need to try other Indian ones that were close by as the food was as good as India

When in HCMC I always go to Baba's kitchen. The food is delicious. The staff are friendly and the service is usually great. It can get very busy at times, so service can be slow. However it is well worth the wait.
