Baba’s Kitchen, Saigon’s favourite Indian kitchen for the last six years, arrived in Hoi An a year ago, bringing with them the same commitment to service and quality that they are well known for.
Featuring North and South Indian dishes prepared by the Indian chefs, the food is Halal and suitable for Muslim guests. Some of their bestselling starters include: Chicken 65 (VND95,000), a favourite appetiser for meat eaters, and vegetable samosas (VND40,000), which is a huge favourite for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike.
For the main courses: butter chicken (VND 110,000) and chicken tikka masala (VND110,000) are their most popular dishes. If you’re looking for something more unique yet authentic, try their items like mango fish curry (VND120,000) and malabar chicken (VND110,000).
Fish garlic tikka (VND 110,000) is a dish that is rarely found outside of India and it’s also available at this restaurant.
Indian chefs, Indian spices, and a focus on pleasing the customer. These are the factors that have contributed to Baba’s success in Vietnam. They don’t just want customers to leave the restaurant happy and full, they want them to return.
With an excellent location near the heart of historic Hoi An, the restaurant has two floors of seating, as well as outdoor tables if you want to watch the world go by, but do make reservations, as they sell out fast.
What Others Say:
The restaurant scores an impressive 5 out 5 on TripAdvisor and 4.8 out of 5 on their own Facebook page. Most of the reviews are centred on the authenticity of the food and the excellent service.
City Pass Guide Says:
Easily the best Indian food you can find in Vietnam. With its authentic dishes and excellent service, Baba’s Kitchen is more than just a meal, it’s an experience.
The complimentary dessert offered with your meal is usually a sweet rice-based dish, but sometimes the chefs will try something new.
