We just happened across this atmospheric local restaurant while wandering around the streets of Vientiane. It’s tree & plant lined street frontage drew us in & while service was as a bit slow at first, the owner was busy chatting down the street, once she...More

Lovely rustic restaurant with a big welcome. The enthusiasm of the lady running it is great. She was mending a fan on our arrival and the other member of staff was not able to take our drinks order so a short wait for service. We...More

It can be hard to find Lao food in Vientiane. Unless you go to the night market food stalls. But found this nice restaurant. A bit expensive, though. 50000 kip for a normal meal plus drinks. However, the food was nice.

Twice the price of what you usually pay in Vientiane for that type of food (30.000 kip for 3 small spring rolls, 50.000 kip for a regular chicken dish, etc.) Some dishes had a ridiculous amount of garlic. Overrated.

We came here on the search for authentic nice Lao food that seems to be rather rare in Vientiane these days. Well the place looks nice, not posh rather like a place to enjoy good authentic food. Service was ok, typical Lao somewhat cold friendliness...More

It was our first meal in Vientiene and we arrived at this restaurant at 4pm. The proprietress, Vilaylac was friendly and welcoming. Needless to say we were the only ones there as it was neither lunch or dinner time but yet she was happy to...More

Don’t be put off by the little barking dog! After you pass this “little” obstacle, your reward is certain! The most delicious food we ate in Laos, with an incredible vegetarian menu. Try their Papaya Salad! The vegetarian version comes with sweet and sour eggplants...More
