We did not find this particularly off piste gem till our third day in Hoi An, so had already experienced everything from the bland to the challenging. This hole in the wall type eating house with its set menu of rice paper rolls with half a dozen different fillings was one of the most authentic and excellent meals that we... More

This is a good fun restaurant which has a very practised and organised formula which I would recommend to anyone to try, a set menu , reasonably priced where you make your own spring rolls

too salty I dont know why this restaurant is recommended. Mango and chocolate pudding is just not bad. I think the dessert is included in spite of myself. I am not sure if the food deserves the price. too expensive compared to other vietnamese food. STRONGLY NOT RECOMMENDED!

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
