Although this restaurant previously has had very good reports, following our visit on the evening after the last reviewer, it would appear that the standard has deteriorated somewhat. Maybe this was the reason there were no other diners during our visit. Whilst my partner had relatively good meal, (he chose the chicken Thai curry), he was surprised that it came... More

We went here for dinner based on positive tripadvisor reviews and were very disappointed with the meals. The pesto spaghetti was extremely heavy, and pork schnitzel bland with uncooked potato salad on the side. one meal took 30 mins to arrive, the other took almost an hour. The handcut chips was the nicest of the lot, but it was not... More

Although we were the only people in the resturant we were not disappointed... Great food, I took the advice of all of the reviews and had the schnitzel which was delicious. My boyfriend ordered the chili which had finished so he had the chicken. We played scrabble and relaxed as the staff were extremly chilled out.... not pushing but being... More

Took the family here for our last night in Laos. Really nice hosts, tasty set Lao menu is available, and the kids had plenty of board games on offer. KILLER home-made fries/chips are best in all of Laos & Gluten free!

We spent a couple of nights at Peeping Som's and were never disappointed. The food is among the best we had in Laos and a welcome change in our fried-rice-menu. What makes this place special is not only the great pasta or bruschetta but also the owner who always have a chat and a smile and actually remember you by... More

Well I have to say, finding good food in Vang Vieng isnt an easy task. You can pretty much get the same meal no matter what restaurant you go to. If your tired of the same lao sandwiches, so so hamburgers and mediocre stir frys give this place a try you will not be dissapointed! We went here 5 days... More

Dont be deceived by the recent TA review about this restaurant. The owners have not changed and the food is still DELICIOUS. We spent a week in Vang Vieng and we ate here 6/7 days. We tried the street food, the restaurant Arena and many others, but none could compare. The pork snichtzel, bruscetta, chicken Kiev and Laos pesto with... More

If you have other dinner plans change them and step in this place. Play a game and eat some awesome western food or local with a different menu as the other places in town. Cheap and really good value.
