They serve a set menu containing some of the Hoi An specialties, such as the country pancakes. The very friendly staff serves the food very fast and the taste is amazing. We had a delightful dinner and we even came back for lunch within two days. This place is a must if you go to Hoi An!

We visited Bale well for lunch and had a great feast - pancakes and wraps which were delicious. We were unsure exactly how it worked or prices and they just start bringing out dishes and show you how to eat them. Was reasonably priced for the amount of food we ate. Only down was tried to keep bringing out extras... More

Bale well has expanded to across the road with a lovely garden setting but still the great value Vietnamese food. The standard fare is barbecued squared chicken, pork, prawns and deep fried rolls which you prepare yourself by wrapping in rice paper with lettuce, greens, herbs etc then dip these in peanut and chilli sauce. The kitchen keeps binging these... More

This restaurant was recommend to us by the receptionist at our hotel. We were just expecting a street food place, but we were surprised by the quality and amount of food we got as part of a set menu. The food was delicious and more than enough for 2 people! I especially liked the chocolate mouse dessert. A very local... More

We went to this place after seeing it in Lonely Planet's guide. We shouldn't have listened. Although the place looks and feels very authentic and has a great atmosphere, we were soon to discover that not everything was as good as it seemed. When we arrived we were given the drinks menu only - no food menu. Apparently this place... More

Food was ok, but pricy compared to what we had served. Would not recommend the place for a friend searching for a place to dine in Hoi An. Wouldn't go there again.

We went to Bale Well twice during our 3 night stay in Hoi An. While the set menu seems on the more expensive side (120,000 per person) it is WELL worth it, as you are given so much delicious food. Some of the best spring rolls in Vietnam.

All you can eat, variety, and very great value. It's hard to find, but so worth it. The service was good, and we enjoyed eating so much good food, we didn't eat dinner that night.
