cool history

neat little spot to visit and here the history on, we did it on a cycle tour and it was well worth it, even if just to get in amongst the real "old city"

if you like fry ups. this restaurant is above average. Pancakes, spring rolls etc are very oily for my liking. the salad/raw veg is plentiful and good. The staffs are very helpful. Just that I am not into oily food. Hence the rating. It is a big sitting area for families.

Great time at this restaurant - recommended from a friend and now we are passing the advice onto others :-) delicious authentic food - quality Kai (food) and you won't go hungry! If you are still full at the end you're a legend! Thanks heaps for the fast efficient service and cheap price!

Went here with local friend for a true taste of what the locals eat and were not disappointed, service quick and efficient. Arrived quickly and a large amount of pretty much everything needed to make our own bahn xeo and pork. Price was very reasonable and food good,

This place is a huge scam. A variety of local food (banh xeo, spring rolls, chicken sticks) grouped together in a "set menu" served up with little interest or care. Food was terrible, pressured to buy overpriced drinks by the stand over man/waiter. Hugely overpriced. Avoid at all costs!

The lunch at Ba Le Well was part of our tour package for a group of 10. They served the food very quickly and since it was the first time we ate rice pancake and grilled pork, the lady demonstrated to us how to eat it. As soon as she sees our food finishing, she will quickly replenish the food... More
