The food was amazing, so delicious and quality. The location was great, too. If you want to enjoy traditional Vietnamese food, should go there!

Had dinner here - it’s a fixed menu and comes with all sorts of fillings- including local specialities - for rice paper rolls. Staff even offer to help show you how to make them ! It’s down a little alley off the major streets but well worth the effort to find and experience local food in a fun atmosphere. I had lots of fun !

Experience to see WELL
Nov 2019
I went searching for this well that supposedly all restaurants that make Cau Lau dish use this water well. It was difficult to find because it is in an alley way passing house, hair saloon, food stalls but I found it. There is a small sign stating Well is 200meters with an arrow pointing into another alley. It was just a old well with water in it.

Great Value For Money

We came here 5 years ago and have been waiting to go back ever since. The set menu provides so much food and it is not only very tasty but very cheap

Not a lot to say about what is ostensibly a hole in the ground however this is an important piece of Hoi An's culture where the "White Rose Dumplings" allegedly have to get their water from for them to be genuine. Unlike many wells in Vietnam it is free from rubbish and is a little gem of a spot worth checking out and it is cost free.

Not a place to spend the whole evening, very nice and tasty experience, very friendly staff and a quiet location just a step away from the town center

Important if you’re a foodie

So why see this well when it’s not really that spectacular? Apparently legend has it that the water for the special brown noodles in Hoi An’s local meal called Cao Lau came from the Ba Le well.
Well well.
Not much to see but given that we’ve eaten a lot of this meal, it did have a special significance. Easy to find on the edge of the walking part of the ancient town. It is interesting walking off the main roads to view local people’s homes and lives just going about their business.

There is an actual well. you know, the hole in the ground with water in it.

It's a bit confusing to read TA reviews about the Ba Le Well because there are several businesses in the area that are named after it, including a well known restaurant and a hair salon. But there is also a well. You know, a well -- a hole in the ground with water in the bottom? You can find it if you try, but, um, it's just a well. Not really worth the effort. In other news, the restaurant seems to be well recommended, but it has a set menu, so if you're not into that, I guess go somewhere else. The hair salon once gave me a NYC-quality blowout (hair styling), and another time did a blowout that was so bad I wanted to just wash my hair and start over, so.... I don't have good advice on that. Anyway. The actual well is an easy pass .

One visit not enough

This is a quirky restaurant with two restaurants side by side with no wall in between, the Well is on the left hand side. There is a well outside the door. The food and drinks were excellent and a very reasonable price. We ate there on three occasions and loved the unique decor and watching the passing parade of people out and about in beautiful Hoi An at night.
