“Good food and friendly staff”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly. For some they might be a bit to friendly, me and my girlfriend were actually fed one or two spring rolls that they prepared for us. All in good sport though, they clearly are very enthusiastic about the food and it is contagious. You leave Bale Well with a full stomach, a smile on your face and in a good mood!

“Heaps of FUN!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Had a great time laughing with the staff and making my own rice paper rolls! The food was pretty tasty and at 90,000d I thought It was good value! I have made the same mess with Mexican back home and its costed $30 (600,000d)! Loved this place, but a little scared of the hygiene, lets hope al is well!

“Great local food”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

For some points, I think we put a wrong article for this place, The Well itself and the restaurant has been mixed up. Anyway, the Ba Le well restaurant is one of the best place to enjoy local specialty. This just serve basic dish such as grilled pork and Sping roll and pancake but it's really good. I like the way they combine the green herb and rice paper and the sauce. It all come together to make a delicious taste. Come to it, enjoy it, 5USD only.

“Authentic Hoi An”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Yes it can be a little hard to find, but persevere as it is worth the effort. This is basic cheap eats, no menu, no prices, no going home hungry. You will be squeezed on to the first available table with locals or tourists and your server will stay with you wrapping up the rice paper dishes and passing them around until you just can't eat any more. The food is great, true Vietnamese street food, served on the street in a back alley. Don't think too much about hygene, this is Vietnam so sit back soak up the atmosphere and enjoy some authentic local cuisine.

“Good at tourist prices”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

It used to be excellent, it is now only good. The pork skewers are still nice, although you find better ones on the street near the bridge on the corner of Nguyen Thai Hoc St. The Banh xeo are too greasy for me. If you think it's cheap, think twice and check the real prices the locals pay...
