We found this place by asking a local to recommend her favourite place to eat. It's tucked down an alleyway and there were only locals in the restaurant. There is just one choice of food to eat - the set menu which comes with an assortment of delicious local cuisine to wrap in rice paper. I cannot express how mega... More

Mmmm mmmm good! I love a place that doesn't give you an option, but just starts bringing out the ingredients for their specialty. Pork and chicken wrapped in rice paper with lettuce, Kim Chi, seafood fried rolls/pancakes, and greens. You only pay for the number of skewers you eat!

Some assembly required in these rolls - but the very nice staff will show you how it's done, and the result is great ;-)

Although a bit pricier than most local eating options in Hoi An, the food is delicious and there is a ton of it! You pay a set price for a set meal but can always ask for more greens and rice papers free of charge. The staff will even adjust the dishes if you request, such as preparing the banh... More

The Ba Le Well Restaurant has a set menu - 120,000 vnd per person. Our bill for four, with 15,000 beers came to 540,000vnd, or about $24 US. Definitely more than we usually spend for lunch, but I must say we got a lot more than we usually do, as well. The service was great, the food was delicious, and... More

I haven't been this excited over food since... ever. I never get excited over food! Everybody gets a set menu - a bunch of barbecued meat, eggs, vegetables and rice paper, so you can roll your own little wrap-bites. It's a hands-on approach and makes the food feel all dynamic and stuff. It was so good we forgot our table... More

This place was fantastic. There is a set menu and no ordering. they just bring you the food and show you how to eat it. the staff were super friendly and helpful. everything was amazing but what stood out was the chocolate moose pudding desert, we had to buy more it was sooooo good! Would definitely go back!

A great quick place to eat. Lots of food for the price. The meat was good, spring rolls okay and beer was cold. It filled the two of us up.

Busy. Well organised place that has set menu for everyone including locals. Every set you get rice paper, pork skewers, rice pancakes that looks like taco with mayo and beans sprouts, green salad, spring rolls and special sauce made with soy bean and chilli, wrap them up and dip into the special sauce. Taste good but the pork skewers is... More
