Description: A little taste of New Orleans at Baka Blues Cafe`...a quaint restaurant positioned by the lily lake and next to the majestic Baka tree at Shop 9e, Arts Village, Pacific Harbour. While away an hour or two under our blue umbrellas, spot our local white heron and feel like you've been transported to a Louisiana bayou. Our barbeque and Cajun inspired menu features Southern favorites as well as mouth watering in-house creations, garden fresh salads and enticing appetizers.So for a little taste of New Orleans come listen to the Blues, nibble on baby back sizzlers, savour the flavors of smoked chicken served in a pineapple boat, be surprised by how well Cajun spices marry with South Pacific mud crabs, tuck into a Texas T-Bone, and sip on a refreshing margarita or mint julep...or two!!We'll help you keep your "mojo"...

We really loved all the diners we had one night. Jambalaya, grilled mahi mahi sandwich, chicken wings and fish dinner

Thank you for your review Robindan of your "one night in Baka Blues". I am pleased that you enjoyed our food. I personally am partial to the Seafood Jambalaya that we serve as well as our Chicken Wings. Great choices!! Nice to know that you enjoyed your eating experience with us. Thank you for your business!

The food was delicious, but the portions were too big. I could have easily shared my meal with another person.

Hello Manda, thank you for your review and titling your post "Great Food - Huge Portions". That was interesting to me that you noted this, as we do practice portion control...just enough for one person, based on research that we have carried out in-house. I am pleased that you found our food delicious. Thank you for your patronage. Stella *;)

It was great to be back there and to have another Baby Backs Sizzlers meal and to finish off with the amazing shepherd's pie!!!! All we can say is mmmm!!! Mmmmm!! All through out our meal. And to chill outside listening to Waqa and Tandra with their true Blues tune...what more could you ask for.
We will definitely come back!!!
Keep it up guys, everything was awesome...

So nice of you to say "always good to be back!!" Bill. So glad, that you "hmmm, hmmmed" throughout your meal. Our Sizzling Baby Back Ribs has certainly become one of our signature dishes, as too, our Shepherds Pie. Pleased that you enjoyed both. Also too, the fact that you felt that everything was awesome, along with the blues that Waqa & Tandra perform, can only mean that you'll be back for more in the future!! I look forward to meeting you and thank you for your patronage. Stella *;)

Had dinner there for 2 nights in a row. After the first night, knew this is a place where you will not be disappointed with the great food. My 5 year old daughter especially enjoyed the kids meal which I must say is a rare sight as she normally does not finish off her meals at other eateries.
Am definitely stopping over for a meal again.

Thank you for your wonderful review of Baka Blues Cafe` Ashwin. It is always a pleasure to see you and your sweet family come by, when you're in from Papua New Guinea. The title of your post "Your 1 stop shop for the perfect dining experience with a special feel of New Orleans", is exactly the atmosphere, food and music that we've created. It is great that you noticed. Great to also know that Shekinah, polished off her food!! I look forward to you guys stopping by again soon!! Thank you for your business. Aunty Stella *;)

This is a real gem with outstanding decor and excellent jazz and blues. We visited twice and thoroughly enjoyed both times. The atmosphere and friendly staff, especially Sarah made this a lovely esperience.

Thank you for your lovely review of Baka Blues Cafe` Winnie. Noting that we are a "real gem" and a great place for music and food pleases me greatly. It is always a nice feeling to read about the experiences that our discerning patrons take away with them and to know that on both occasions you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves. Yes, our lovely Sarah, since joining us 5 months ago, she is definitely an asset to the rest of our wonderful team. Thank you for your business and taking the time to write a positive review. Stella *;)
