“All you can eat make your own spring rolls for 100000 vnd”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

What a great restaurant. While it is still frequented by locals, the main clients are now foreigners brought in from Lonely Planet. But the women running this place were so friendly and so helpful teaching us how to make these barbeque pork satay rolls. For 100000 vnd, you have unlimited grilled pork satay, Vietnamese kimchi, rice pancakes, lettuce and other greens, a delicious peanut soybean sauce and deep fried Vietnamese pancakes. The ambience is low-budget, but that is part of the charm.

“Cheap and delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

The restaurant was so busy, they set us up across the alley i front of the restaurant. It was fantastic! One of my fave meals of our trip.

The Bahn xeo was so good, crunchy and crisp on the outside soft an filled with deliciousness!

The spring rolls were great too!

3 types of BBQ meat! all very good!

“Worth the search”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

We looked for this place because of the rave on TripAdvisor and in Lonely Planet. Though it was a little difficult for us to find. But perseverance paid off. Finally got there after asking several neighbouring businesses and they all knew the place. The food was great and it was really good to see many locals seated and eating there - which we hardly saw in any of the restaurants in the main drag. They were also paying the same price as tourists. So this convinced us that everything was authentic and the food not anglicised ! The owner came around and prepared/rolled the paper rice for us - we tried to do it ourselves but made a mess.. The business has been there for 22 years so she was able to do it so quickly and neatly. The food just came out as soon as we sat down and kept coming out. Definitely worth the visit - for the experience and the food.

“Great and cheap food :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Bale well is a great place, you sit down and they bring all the food to you. There's one menu, but it tastes great. They show you how do make the wraps and it tastes amazing. Afterwards you get to choose between different flavoured mousses and you also get a pineapple pieces on a plate. As I said earlier they only serve one menu, but it tastes great and it's nice once in a while that you don't have to decide what to order :-p
