I would come back here without hesitation. The food is excellent, with a wide array of local food at very good prices. The beer (as with everywhere) is cheap and we were welcomed and served very well despite the fact we were the only ones in the restaurant, as we hadn't realised that the locals ate much later. If you... More

Delightful and authentic Lao cuisine. I would be happy returning here again and again. A good range of choices and reasonable prices.

We were strolling the area, too early for dinner, but stopped by and made a booking for my husband and me for dinner. When we arrived, we were shown to a table in the corner of the outside deck, nice enough, but as the evening went on, easily overlooked. We ordered traditional Lao foods, which came well enough prepared, but... More

Now this is actually one of the very best restaurants in town. I visit it each time I come to Vientiane. The lower rating in this list is surely based on the fact that no-one finds it by just strolling aimlessly as a tourist. But do not fret, it is located close to town centre; just aim for Jazzy Brick... More

We persevered until we located this restaurant. It's quite central, but just off the main strip. We shared an entree of spring rolls, and the mains were a chicken curry and fried fish...sorry I can't recall the exact titles from the menu. The dishes were lovely, and felt like they were a great representation of Lao cuisine. The service was... More

We must have been lucky. We arrived on a Monday evening and had the dining room to ourselves. We enjoyed a quiet, relaxing meal, the perfect ending to a hectic day. The citronella fish was very special, something that I hadn't had before and truly enjoyed it. We had excellent service.

Although very "touristy" their food is about as close to authentic as you will get in a restaurant that is not a local market. The service was great, they have a wide selection and well,worth trying

The food at Amphone is very good and…. very interesting as they use some quite uncommon ingredients in some dishes. An excellent option if you want to discover some original Lao food. All dishes are well prepared and well presented. The choice of wine is good as well. A good experience that I recommend when visiting Laos.

I went to Amphone for lunch on a Saturday -- I had seen the place busy the night before and was quite impressed with the atmosphere that I saw from outside -- so decided to try it out. The place was almost empty (only another table was occupied) but it took forever for anybody to approach me. My first order... More
