“Friendly astmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

The Kangaroo Sunset Bar was a restaurant and bar owned by an foreign people. We stop over here because it was recommended by the Lonely Planet and we wanter something different from all the TV bars in Vang Vieng. Sure, The Kangaroo Sunset Bar had a TV but I had the impression it's more for the staff than the visitors. You won't find row upon row of backpackers watching endless reruns of 'Friends' here. The menu of the bar is extensive, with both Asian and Western food, and all of the food we ordered was absolutely delicious and as cheap as I found anywhere in Laos.

“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

The menu of the bar is various, with both Asian and Western food, and all of the food we ordered was absolutely delicious and as cheap as you'll find anywhere in Laos. We were showm to the kitchen and how food was being prepared. The toilet is clean and there is a pool table if you want something more active than just eating and drinking.

It was a funny place to spent some hours while being there you'd better enjoy some party.

“Awesome Curry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

We went here for nearly every meal while in Vang Vieng. I know I may have missed out on some other places but after the Massaman curry I had for the first meal we were both happy to try more. Every meal we had was great. The place isn't the liveliest in town (apparently it's been closed a while) but the view, friendliness and food more than made up. AND they've got Marmite! Good job.

“Best food in Vang Vieng hands down...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2011

I was walking down the road from my guesthouse when i heard some sort of psychedelic rock and was immediately drawn in. My girlfriend and I had the intention of only staying for an early dinner but ended up staying all night! The food was fantastic and blew every other resteraunt out of the water, seriously (try the massaman chicken). the music was great, beers cold, and the manager Jesse fom Australia made us feel right at home. Has a pool table too. Would highly recommend.
