Very good breakfast

I have used Sticky Fingers several times, but this was the first time of trying their breakfast. I had the eggs benedict with smoked salmon, I asked for and received my egg well done! Getting what you ask for in itself is something of an accomplishment in Laos. well done.

This place is great. Great food, no nonsense and great value. Pleasant efficient staff. I had some chicken concoction and it was perfect - just the right amount of spicy and plenty of meat. My friend had a cocktail and I'm still hearing about how good it was. When in Laos Country, I'll be back.

There's a reason why Sticky Fingers remains so popular with Vientiane expats and tourists alike - consistently good quality and inexpensive food, with a good kids' menu, a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and it's central location near the Mekong waterfront. While I'm not a huge fan of the Tom Yam martini, Sticky's is also still a great spot for an... More

After reading the previous reviews of Sticky Fingers I felt compelled to add a review of my own. I have lived in Vientiane for over three years and have visited numerous times, not once have I had a poor experience at this restaurant. So I was extremely surprised to read the previous negative reviews. The food is high quality western... More

The fact that the food I ordered didn't make me sick is the only positive of this place. Poor staff and poor tasting food make me wonder how the place stays open. Go to the few local outdoor eateries for a better experience at a better price.

The food was cold, oily and really bad. The service was terrible. Staff standing around avoiding eye contact. Don't waste your time.

Not pretentious and good value. Cocktails are a little lacking in alcohol but perhaps that's not a bad thing!

In dire need of dietary innovation we shared a veggie quesadilla and a portion of potato wedges, and were surprised by a basket of the best chips that we'd had in months. Quesadilla was good too. The houmous with the chips was a bit weird though - it tasted like it was made with sesame oil rather than tahini, which... More

Little new can be added to the body of reviews on this well-known establishment. Yes, there are many cheaper alternatives but not everyone is only governed by the bottom line. I always prefer to pay slightly more for quality. The menus are clearly displayed outside so I am surprised that anyone looks at these, goes in to eat and then... More
