We were at this restaurant last week and had lunch. It is located in a narrow street. The food and the service was good at decent prices. The staff too were very friendly. However, their wash room was too stinky and the kitchen next to it did not look hygienic at all!

We were in Ho Chi Minh for 3 days and ate here twice. Great food and excellent service. They provide lots of sauces to your table as well as rice pudding after your meal.

The Bui vien street has not that many surprises to offer but I do really recommend Babas if you are craving for indian food! Had a quick lunch with my vegan son and we were both pleased with what we ordered. Veggie Samosas as a starter were super and for main course we had two different veggie masalas. It doesn't... More

Great food - Great Service - Good size portion. All the traditional Indian dishes including Vindaloo which is one of my favorite. It's traditionally made very hot which I like. Don't worry the professionally trained servers will guide you trough the menu. Don't forget to try the various bread- all delicious..... Enjoy!

Title says it all. Incredibly tasty, totally non-pretentious, affordable curry. Just go here. We had the spinach and potato curry which was delicious, tasty tarka dahl and the jalfrezi was the best out of the three. Great for vegetarians.

Came here as we've been travelling for over 6 months and wanted something different. It turned out to be a good choice. They do north and south Indian food. Recommend the masala dosa! Food is spicy (maybe you could ask them to dial it down if it's not your thing).

Best Indian restaurant in this street according to tripadvisor so we went there to check it out for ourselves. We felt very welcome and the staff really cares about customer service. They - if needed - are willing to help you make a good meal choice and you will get numerous of water refills (which if you have a spicy... More
