we were there in february 2017 and wanted to have a view to the mekong at sunset. This was perfectly achieved. prices are reasonable for the situation. service is quick for real fresh food (when it is too quick in Laos that means not fresh food and then diarrhea..). Waiters are friendly and polite like most laos people. Go there... More

Came here around 10.30am Friendly waiter, but slow to serve. Food is below average. Recommend to go for fried noodle instead of soup. Environment is nice, because just beside riverbank of meikong. It's our first meal, price is not really "friendly".

Decided to try out this place while walking along the Mekong. We got the Morning Glory, the O'Lam traditional style eggplant and a mango/pineapple smoothie. All were incredibly delicious so much we came back the next day for a Green Papaya salad and more Morning Glory. All made spicy of course. The service is slow, maybe a little more than... More

There are a number of people commenting negatively about the service here and, in particular, there seems to be a pattern regarding the slightly questionable way that the bill is put together at the end of the meal. This pattern is there for a reason! I only saw these reviews after visiting this place, as we just happened upon it... More

We ate here twice because it was close to our guest house and has a great view. The Lao Mekong fish curry was one of the best soups I have ever eaten. The mixed vegetables with chicken in oyster sauce was also very good. Food came out about ten minutes after ordering it.

My friend and I settled on this restaurant for an early evening beer, and a reminisce about old, missing friends. About an hour later, we ordered a glass of wine each and asked to see the menu. We chose our meals which eventually arrived, along with another glass of wine, around 2 hours after we arrived at the place. The... More

We wanted an early dinner and stumbled upon this restaurant where we could have dinner overlooking the Mekong. The menu is pictorial and in English. We asked the waiter for recommendations and he promptly pointed at one of the more costly fish dishes. We decided not to go with any of his recommendations. In the end, we ordered the spring...

Glad I did not read the poor reviews before sitting down. The service was very good, friendly and efficient server, and the food was delicious. Two meals, two rice, stir fried vegetables, a glass of wine, and a shake for $100,000 kip. Plus a beautiful sunset. The ginger chicken was great and the sour pork in banana leaves was good... More

You would expect the restaurant to be expensive because of the situation by the river but the prices are pretty much the same as in other areas. Very tasty curries and amazing shakes! The only 'but' is that they are very slow serving the food...
