We visited the restaurent by recommendation and we were not completely satisfied. The food was a bit to greasy and the service was confused. Otherwise I suggest you try this restaurant, as it serves only a few dishes, which are typical for Hoi An. Do...More

I was very disappointed with our visit to this restaurant. We have only ever received superb customer service in Vietnam until this restaurant. Waiting staff totally disinterested and rude. Food was mediocre at best. Plentiful but poor quality. Won't be going back

We were looking forward to some barbecue but we're really disappointed by what we found. Only one option, a set menu including pork and chicken skewers something like egg pancakes, spring rolls, vegetables, rice wrappers, and later a little dessert. If that's what you want,...More

Loved the Bale well!!! The staff was super friendly and the food simple delicious. A set menu and teaching how to eat the food. Vietnamese wraps kind of, stuffed with flavour and texture. Cool atmosphere, genuin place! Absolutely worth a visit!

Just as we thought we could not get a bad meal in Vietnam, we tried this restaurant. We had read previous mixed reviews but decided to try it for ourselves. The food was very greasy, and other than the salad, did not look very fresh....More

You don't chose anything (except drinks) since it comes as set menu. Portions are quite generous, so do not hesitate to order less when you are a family. Food is good although a bit greasy, good beers, seating outside, quick service... A sure choice when...More

Great for some authentic street food, good spread and definitely more than enough food. The staff are friendly and there are a few famous faces on the wall! We liked that it was a set menu so we didn’t have to think about anything except...More

If u want to eat good local food without having to make choices then this is it- you get salad, pancakes, spring rolls, pork skewers and some interesting deserts all for about 6 bucks each. Beers and cocktails are cheap enough too! Good place for...More

Yes you can order just one meal between 3, but I think you'll find 2 for 3 better and it's so cheap it's worth it. Enjoy
