Decent sandwich.

Didn't expect too much as Savannakhet is very quiet this time of year. The place is nice and seems to be the busiest of the open restaurants with expats abound. Food and service was good and all the customers were given a complementary fruit dish just before closing, waste not want not but it was a... read more

Good food, sincere and very helpful with local knowledge. You can even bring Som Tham in from across the road, sit and enjoy. Very well presented and we will return next visit.

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...

It is true that in this rainy season, ants are emerging from nowhere. But, we avoid using chemicals for killing them. Our policy is... More

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

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.
