Were unsure after ready mixed review but after visiting we would definitely recommend. Both the food and service were great. The experience is unique. A busy garden restaurant but with personal service. Don't be put off by the set menu as it covers many dishes.

Loved eating at Ba Le Well. There is no menu; you are simply brought food to eat. This involves plates of veg, skewers of meat, bowls of sauce, spring rolls, egg and rice paper. The waiters show you what to do with the food -...More

Came in here not too hungry. A pity as a great meal to draw out with a few beers. Wasn't sure what they were serving as we just drifted in off the street. Highly recommend if you're hungry.

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
