The one-and-a-half hour long fashion show, exhibiting traditional costumes from different ethnic groups in Laos, was very colourful and wonderful to watch. However, the food and service was disappointing. The meals did not arrive together, the plates and most of the food items were cold...More

Iv never given a bad trip adviser review before but I thought people needed to know how bad this place is. The service was terrible!! The staff ignored us, then after taking our order forgot our drinks, then our drinks sat at the bar while...More

Go there for the Ethnik Fashion Walk. 100 traditional costumes, well worth it and inspiring. Nice garden with relaxing atmosphere

An Ok night out for a few beers and bar snack the fashion show they heavily promote is really a waste of time - nothing of interest just to attract tourists which in my case worked but only once !More

A waste of time? what a ignorant review! Not only is the Ethnik Fashion Show considered a cultural venue by Culture and Tourism department, but it also supports University Students financially not to mention building confidence and team work. Hive has received rave reviews from...More

Allmost every night they have fashion show: they present traditional suits and in the background you can hear modern music. Pizza is delicious!

Fantastic restaurant. My husband had the smoked pork chop upon the staff recommendation and he was still raving about it days later. We really enjoyed the food here. If you need a change from rice based dishes, come here!

I also really like those meals that stand out enough to talk about them a few days later, our meats are pretty tasty! Glad you enjoyed a break from the rice and noodles, sometimes you just need a taste of homestyle food :) Troy
