“Had a very nice lunch here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Nice mix of Lao with Western touches. Very tasty and the kind of place that you chat with others at the tables next to you. Very fun.

“Fair Enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I went to Xang Khoo to try one of the Lao dishes on the menu. I ordered a green curry with kitchen and it was pretty good. It was one of the few places I could find cold beer in Vientiane. I also tried the crêpe aux poires for desert and it was pretty good. The prices are a bit high though.

“Well recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Highly recommended! Great Thai good in great prices! The only drawback is the western music... Backstreet boys? Come on! We need traditional Lao music!
4* but I could easily had rated with 5*!

“Well hidden but food is great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We stumbled across this little restaurant after doing the sights of Vientianne. The first visit was to have a nice cold beer to quench the thirst. The large beerlao was presented in a stubby cooler which I as an Australian totally appreciated. The second visit was to have a meal. The service was friendly and quick and the spring rolls (both cold and fried) and battered vegetables were to die for. If we had not wandered the streets would never have found this place. Well worth the visit even just for a beer
