Mango sticky rice was awesome!

Nice atmosphere. Servers were attentive. Had the stir fried vegetables with sticky rice and mango sticky rice for dessert. Not a blow your mind place, but reasonably priced and tasty.

Colleagues and I went twice- the second time to impress another work mate who has the opportunity to visit more often as he lives in the region. The food was wonderful. Starters of fried spring rolls (tofu version was excellent), fresh spring rolls (smaller and more manageable than the Vietnamese version) and their special dried beef - a really delicate... More

Had lunch here and the menu offers a nice large selection of lao food. the menu has good decribtions of the food and they will ask you how spicy you want your food. Had the mekong weed sundried and then deep fried and it was super super tasty. also tried crispy pork with vegetables and it was also very nice.
