Set menu- delicious.

Came here for dinner. Sat down, got drinks and then food started to arrive. Very confused but turns out it's a set menu. No complaints though, the food is delicious and the staff are friendly enough. One lady made our first spring roll for us. Definitely recommend!

Wow! Don't let the settling of the place put you off ... Try it. Arrived there for our booking for 10. There was some mix up with it, but that didn't stop them. Out of nowhere appeared three tables and chairs for all - set up almost instantly. Menus then magically appeared, but they were just for drinks. There is... More

This place was recommended by a friend, thanks Cath, and it didn't disappoint. The food was great, the ladies were friendly and very helpful and we left feeling very satisfied with our decision to come here for dinner. Although it's a bit tricky to find it's well worth the adventure!

This place provides a unique and safe experience for those who want to get an exposure to some of what Vietnam has to offer. Very busy, and the management staff a little pushy, but that is its charm. This is a great place to come in a group, but as there is no menu, you must be prepared to sit... More

I first went to Bale Well in January 2014. And I loved the food and the people working there, we were incredibly well looked after. Unfortunately we weren't in Hoi An long enough to go back there and eat their amazing Banh Xeo(Rice pan cake), Thit nuong(grilled pork), Ram cuon(spring rolls), Nem nuong(grilled pork with sate). Last month I went... More

Great satay sticks and peanut sauce. Good fun with good company! They help make your first rolls, and finish with yummy dessert.

There is only one dish at this restaurant and it's fabulous! The staff showed us how to put the wrap together and then didn't stop supplying plates! I'd definitely go again.

This place is sensational. Basically you navigate your way down an alley to find this place. It will be busy and with good reason. The service is great. The dining is a set menu feel and the quantity and quality will not disappoint. The food is hands on- making your own rice paper rolls with meat skewers, local pancakes and... More

tucked away in an alley this place is very popular with the locals, try and get a garden table, too hot inside, food just keeps coming til you say stop. 4 of us shared salads, vegetables, sticks of roast meat and minced pork with spicey satay (very hot if you want), freshly made spring rolls and type of fried crepe...
