The curry was too spicy. I was hungry and wished it wasn't that spicy so I could enjoy it. Sad experience. The taste was good. If they take a better care of spices I would come back. But how can one believe this level of spice can be acceptable for a non Indian??

I have tried quite a few Indian restaurants in the city, and nothing compares to this place. The dishes here have amazing flavor and the service is second to none.

The food was spectacular and the service both responsive and efficient. The curries and the tandoori were both well prepared and served quickly and with a smile.

Baba's Kitchen is the best Indian restaurant in Saigon. I was living in Saigon several years and visited several Indian restaurants during that time.
