My husband and I wanted a quick snack so we decided to split a Bahn mi from this shop. The owner was very friendly and provided excellent service. The sandwich was very fresh, slightly crunchy like a good Bahn mi should be, and overall a great choice. We will definitely come here again.

What I like about this place is that there are full-color pictures of many of their dishes posted on the walls. I just wanted a traditional banh mi sandwich, filled with pate and steamed ham plus lots of pickled veggies on a baguette. It was a little more expensive than it usually is on the mainland, but it had more... More

I had lunch at Ba-le in Honolulu and when I saw this location in Kailua later that day, I knew I needed to stop in. Good value and good food.

I wanted something quick and good, and as I was driving around Kailua, I spotted Ba-Le. Parking can be a little dicey, so I parked over in the shopping center lot and walked over. Yes, it was still raining, but I was wet already and didn't care. Friendly greeting when I walked in. I ordered a chicken sandwich and a... More

They have moved! Don't go to this location. All the reviews below are for the same restaurant, but it is now at 131 Hekili Street. See my review there. They had to move because the Target was being built at their location.

I am addicted to the veggie sandwich on a bun. Picked carrot, daikon radish and cilantro. Simple but simply the best.

The food here is delicious. The choice of foods are great but the problem is the choices they had starts from the left side all the way to the counter. If you just came by the place, you will be wondering why the choices starts at 21. Nice portion of foods and great service. A must try!

The pho is very good. We usually get the one with tendons for the glucosamine.once it was a little tough, but we let them know and since then it has been tender. The sandwiches are also very good especially with the little pickled vegetables. We love the tapioca desserts. Everything is very reasonable so easy to come here often. It... More

The vegetarian sandwich is tasty - on freshly warmed French bread is a wonderful light meal, completely satisfying. Reasonably priced compared to usual high food prices in Hawaii.
