Good Sandwich, good but not great pho.

The lemongrass chicken Bahn Mi was really flavorful. Great bread. I've had better pho but that's about the worst I can say. For food court food you'll struggle to find better.

Growing up on Oahu, we had Ba-Le which made FANTASTIC french/vietnamese sandwiches. I don't know if the ones on Oahu served pho or other vietnamese dishes, but the one in Kihei does. Terrible pho and saimin. Probably better just to walk over to the L&L right next door.

Oh boy. I got some shrimp spring rolls at Bale earlier today, and had gnarly experience. When I bit into the second one, I noticed a crunchiness in my mouth and lo and behold I was eating a finger nail. Ho tanks ah. If I would have been eating there in the restaurant I would have snapped. So fricken disgusting.

IF you are looking for something quick and different this is it. They bake their own bread and you cant miss with the lemon grass chicken sandwich. The soups are a bit pricy for what they are....veggies an water....but I cant seem to get anything different because I like the sandwich and the shrimp spring rolls too much.

Vietnamese sandwiches use light and fluffy french-style baguettes. I found the baguettes at this bakery a bit heavy, and unfortunately old and stale.

Im Vietnamese and was looking for some Pho in Maui. This place has good Pho and the sandwiches were not too bad. I also tried Pho Saigon 808 in Lahaina which got great reviews. Pho Saigon 808's Pho was not good. The spices they used was just star anise and they were missing cardamom and cinnamon spices. All the other... More

My husband wanted a Vietnamese sandwich as he always gets one back home in Toronto. We usually get them for $2. Here he paid just over $6!! He got the special, which i believe was beef ribs. Nothing special to write about. The ones we get are better in quality. So if you're ever in Toronto, let me know and... More

Based on raw steak pho at both locations, this one is not nearly as good as what we've been served at the Kahului location. Pho broth is (or is supposed to be) very complex, and this one simply wasn't, even after adding all the greenery and sauces. The menu is the same at both locations. We had a chicken salad... More

I find out about Ba-Le from positive reviews on another site. I got the the Teriyaki beef sandwich and it was delicious. Most importantly the French Bread was crispy and tasty. It is worth taking the quick side trip to Wailuku for this treat.

They won't answer the vegan questions. They won't tell you if there's egg or dairy in their food.
