Consistently good

I've eaten here a number of times and had always liked it. It is by far the best restaurant in town. I would say the price is very reasonable

I got a warm welcome here, Lin is very friendly. I ordered the chicken burger with french fries, 1 lao beer and afterwards a banana shake. Loved the beer and the burger was great for the price(definitely some improvements in the burger, tasted little bit flat, but overall great though and lot better than other places for same price) and...

We went here at around lunch time and ordered 2 dishes. Although it was a bit expensive, the portions were huge and the food was delicious. The restaurant was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. This restaurant was probably the only thing I enjoyed in this entire city.

This cafe has great coffees, very good food, great information about the town and attractions nearby and a small gallery upstairs. At first I was confused and thought that this was the most unusual Tourist Information office I have ever been in because of all the brochures and local information available. It just turned out to be an incredibly comfortable... More

I lived in SVK for a whole year and frequented this place a lot. Lin's is the best cafe by far in SVK (aside from Macchiato de Cafe). It is small and homey. The staff are super nice and speak English well. There is a variety of western and japanese food. Service is a bit slow because they have a... More

This place has received a good write-up by many so I made a point of visiting while I was in town. It is well known - Savannakhet is small enough for everywhere to be well known to the tuk tuk drivers I guess - and our driver said he was known to them too and they called him to collect... More
