A lovely Cafe in the old town of Savanhnaket

I was here a few times during a business trip. A good place for having fresh brew coffee, with a delicious freshly make bakery. Also their samosa is a must try, if you come here.

Lin's offers a unique, tranquil and very relaxed setting and one can imagine that they could be dining anywhere other than downtown Savannakhet. The staff are very professional (obviously been to F&B school), speak very good english and offer top service. On offer was a comprehensive international menu and extensive range of drinks and a smallish variety of cakes. I... More

The atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff was very friendly. The prices were ok too. I've paid 22.000 for home made yellow curry with veggies,... More

This little cafe/restaurant is in an atmospheric old Chinese merchants building a few streets from the river. It has a mixture of Laos and western dishes, salads, soup, breakfasts, burgers,Thai curries and homemade desserts. We ate a range of things in our two visits there and the food was excellent both times. About 40/50,000 kip for mains. The staff couldn't... More

I have been to Savannakhet twice now and been to Lin's both times. The Breakfast is great (scrambled eggs, baguette, home made passionfruit jelly) coffee is really tasty. From the dinner menu I had the Green curry, it was one of the best I've had which is surprising since I live in Bangkok. I gladly recommend Lin's a as oasis... More

Everything I read about making my Visa trip to Savannakhet as hassle free and enjoyable kept referring to Lin's as a great place to chill out and pass the time - (not to mention complimentary WiFi) Well it certainly was all as promised. Great coffee, real French Baguettes, Pastries and more substantial snacks not to mention the delicious Lao Beer.... More
