29 Jul 2015 - Fast and good service. We just sat down, not knowing what to order. Then they just kept putting food on the table. We told them that we didn't order the food and they just said "Set Menu". Then, a lady came to teach us how to wrap the food and how to eat it. Food was... read more

I was told about this plce by the family running my guesthouse. All I wanted was some barbecued, greasy food to fill up my stomach after a long day. And I had come to just the place. The meat was delicious together with that nutty sauce. I liked the concept, too. No menu. You just sit down and they bring... More

This was amazing for just over 100,000 dong we had a 4 course meal. They teach you how to set up each meal. The food is delicious and you will only need a snack for dinner. Very quick service they don't speak much English but it's not really needed at you go for the set menu. We are going here... More

We went back twice for this delicious meal! Would highly recommend! Fast, and deliciousness! So much food! It's located down a side street and may be difficult to find.

You MUST go here. The prix fixe menu of grilled meats, ban xiao (rice pancakes), all wrapped with veges in a rice paper roll, then dipped in a delectable sauce, is AMAZING. Potentially the best street eats we had over our 2 weeks in Vietnam. The portions are plentiful, the food is incredible, and the price is affordable. There's nothing... More

I and my friend came here for dinner. The restaurant was busy but service was fast and attentive. They have tables in door and out door but bear in mind no aircon and if you sit outside you won't feel wind from fan at all. If you are used to with air-con, cooler weather just keep in mind it will... More

Searched TA for good local food in Hoi An, so we got to this place. Just read through most of the reviews now and hoped I read through a few pages (and not just one) before we went there. Anyway, we were surprised when we learned that they only offer a set menu for 110,000 VND per person. That made... More

Loved this place. Always busy. Great atmosphere. Staff are very attentive though. They only serve one set menu so no need to order. Double rice paper wraps, with an egg omelette inside, then pork and shrimp, salad, veg and a delicious chilli dip! They brought us a second plate without us needing to ask! Starter and desert were also decent... More

A big group of us went to Bale Well for dinner following lots of good recommendations! We all had a great time! The customers there were mainly local. All you need to do there is sit back and they will bring you their set menu food for 110k VD. We had these amazing rolls that had veg, spring rolls, meat... More
