I went here twice during my trip to Vang Vieng, ordering the chicken wrap one time and the beef another time. The service was SLOW, so don't eat here if you are in a rush or if it seems like there are big groups. Very satisfying meal -- lots of veggies, nicely cooked bread. The lemon-mint shake and the coconut... More

I had the falafel with hummus kebab and it was just extraordinary. Very delicious, probably my best meal in Laos.

I'm guessing this spot was once Israeli-run and the basic menu remains. I had the hummus and falafel. Both were fine. But there's none of the extras that you would generally expect like a spicy chili relish or a garlic yogurt sauce.

Went here based on lonely planet. Doesn't look much from outside, but oh my goodness, it was super tasty! We all loved it and would recommend.

We ordered hummus, chicken kebab and tomato soup. The falafel and hummus worse we ever tried in our lives. People who are writing reviews that is amazing perhaps never tried real middle eastern hummus and falafel. I live in London and I eat this type of food at least one a week - this was just horrible. Kebab - pita... More

I had the urge to have some falafel but wasn't expecting too much from this place. Was empty when I went in - customers and staff. But after a little while staff turned up. They have some raised tables which are always nice. I ordered their falafel wrap which came with french fries and a garlic sauce. It was really... More

We had a falafel and a chicken shish kebab in a pita with French fries. There are not a lot of fries in the set. I recommend just getting the pita. It's pretty good, comes with hummus and a lot of veggies. If you're looking for a healthy alternative and fresh taste, definitely choose this!

Falafel and hummus are an absolute must taste when visiting Vang Vieng. Great homemade food for low kip!

Pretty good falafel sandwiches with an awesome garlic sauce that adds so much flavor to it. Perfect quick dinner and good value for money.

Really nice organic mulberry juice. Delicious oats & fresh fruit. I have been struggling to find healthy options for breakfast unless fried so this makes a rally nice change.
