Everything was absolutely delicious and fresh
I ate here for the 1st time last night, and Kau Ba exceeded my expectations! I sat at the bar and had the Lychee Gang cocktail and ordered the F.O.B. baby soft shell crab, snails, street food shrimp, and shaking beef. Everything was absolutely delicious and fresh. Jay, the bartender, did a phenomenal job. He made an excellent old fashioned and provided some good vibes to go along with dinner. I’ll definitely be coming back!
lettuce wraps were amazing
The lettuce wraps were amazing. The chef was detail- oriented and made the wraps exceptionally well! Wonderful place to eat! Shrimp poppers were delicious too.
staff are also attentive
i’ve visited kau ba a few times now and it is always a delight! really lovely food and very unique specialty cocktails. it’s a very chill vibe, both indoors and outdoors. you *have* to get the vietnamese pizza and/or f.o.b. crabs as appetizers! my favorite drink is the #lycheegang but you also must try the pho-loma at least once – it’s exactly what it sounds like, a pho-spiced paloma! the staff are also attentive and kind – spectacular service from anwen, cat, and george! definitely ask them for recommendations on drink pairings and what’s good. i love bringing my friends here on any occasion!
staff was very friendly
Stopped here for a quick lunch and I loved it. The food was delicious. It was simple and yet very fresh and tasty. It felt full and not bloated. The pork belly was perfect and the staff was very friendly. I look forward to go back and try different dishes. The whole experience felt very comfortable.
tastes and exciting new flavors
I visited Kau Ba with some friends in HT, and I must say it was a delightful experience from start to finish. The atmosphere in Kau Ba was undeniably cute, with a cozy and stylish interior that immediately caught my attention.
I impressed with display of old pictures showcasing a lady with a car in Saigon from the 1960s. The vintage pictures adorned the walls of Kau Ba, transporting me back in time and immersing me in the rich history and culture of Saigon.
Chef Nikki and the staffs at Kau Ba were friendly and welcoming. They went above and beyond to ensure that every guest felt well taken care of. Their knowledge of the menu and their enthusiasm in explaining the fusion of Vietnamese flavors showcased their passion for creating exceptional dining experiences.
Speaking of the food, Kau Ba impresses with its fusion of Vietnamese cuisine. The dishes were a delightful blend of traditional flavors with innovative twists, resulting in a truly unique and memorable culinary journey. Each bite was a harmonious balance of familiar Vietnamese tastes and exciting new flavors.
