“Peoples restaurant”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

An interesting peoples restaurant as against a tourist restaurant. Well worth having a meal there. The food was generous and of good variety. A good Vietnamese experience.

“Force fed food...perfect”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

As others have mentioned, the girls who work here will show you how to prepare your food and on occasions feed you as well!
The quality and quantity is excellent. We paid 90,000 each and feel that it is excellent value for money.
Bale Well is not for someone who wants air conditioned areas and restaurant style service. A great experience.

“Quintessential Hoi An dining experience!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Bale Well was recommended by a Hoi An resident we met on the road from Hue. The meal here features EVERYTHING to love about Hoi An food; spring rolls, rice pancakes, BBQ pork, grilled pork meatballs, tons of lettuce & herbs, satay sauce and chili. No need to order, it just comes. Use 2 rice paper wrappers and get dirty! No need to order anything but beer and refills if you're super hungry. Unbelievable value too @ 90,000 Dong per person.

“The real deal”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Eating at this restaurant was by far my favourite dining experience in Vietnam. There is no menu, they just bring the food to you until you are full. If you want to experience great authentic Vietnamese food definitely visit this place!

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Without ordering anything but drinks, the table got filled with food at high speed. One menu and real good. Spring rolls to be made at the table by yourself. Don't be afraid to stumble. The ladies working here know a western face when they see one and take charge without hesitation. With a firm and mastered hand they construct your spring roll. All you have to do is put it in your mouth and enjoy. Great experience!
