Babas Brings the Tastes of India to Vietnam.
Indian food before Baba's Kitchen
In the early 2000s, the Indian restaurant scene in Ho Chi Minh City was quite limited. Very few restaurants offered Indian cuisine at the time. If customers wanted Indian food, their best option was to visit the Pham Ngu Lao area. Several restaurants offered similar Indian dishes such as biryani and samosa but not at the level we see today in the city.
Enter Baba's Kitchen
On September 2, 2011, Baba's Kitchen opened its first restaurant on Bui Vien Street in Pham Ngu Lao. With a packed grand opening, Babas changed how customers viewed Indian food in Saigon. It would also set the standard for Customer Service very few competitors can equal even to this day.
The person responsible for this is Robin Babu, the owner of Baba's Kitchen. Robin was born and raised in Kerala, located in the southwest region of India. He decided to move to Vietnam to help his relative open one of the first Indian restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City. After several years, he had opened several more restaurants in both Vietnam and Cambodia. Then, with his experience in the Vietnamese market and support of his friends, Robin decided to open Baba's Kitchen.
Baba's Kitchen became successful
There are many key ingredients in making an Indian restaurant successful. Robin knew them all. He brought the familiar tastes and flavors of India, to Vietnam. This included flying Indian chefs and cooks to Ho Chi Minh City from India. He located the ingredients and spices needed for each authentic dish. Finally, Robin made sure to offer all the dishes customers, including Indians, liked. He even had an Expatriate friend to bring 20 kilos of spices and tea from New Delhi to Vietnam via Kazakhstan!
The most important key ingredient to the success of Baba's Kitchen is customer service. Robin, and his staff works hard to make sure you, his customers, get the best cuisine India can offer. This is why he, and his staff at Baba's Kitchen, prides itself on customer service.
