“Overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

We went here for dinner based on positive tripadvisor reviews and were very disappointed with the meals. The pesto spaghetti was extremely heavy, and pork schnitzel bland with uncooked potato salad on the side. one meal took 30 mins to arrive, the other took almost an hour. The handcut chips was the nicest of the lot, but it was not worth writing home about either...

“decent lao food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

we had their lao set menu for one person which is cooked and purchased from some local lady- our meal came with fish and buffalo skin stew with beef and sticky rice. the portions were good size, however, the stew wasnt my thing.

we also had beef laap which was ok. the sticky rice portions are also more generous than other restaurants.

“yum yum yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Although we were the only people in the resturant we were not disappointed...

Great food, I took the advice of all of the reviews and had the schnitzel which was delicious. My boyfriend ordered the chili which had finished so he had the chicken.

We played scrabble and relaxed as the staff were extremly chilled out.... not pushing but being there exactly when you needed them!

Clever name!!

“Great chill spot & great food too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

Took the family here for our last night in Laos. Really nice hosts, tasty set Lao menu is available, and the kids had plenty of board games on offer. KILLER home-made fries/chips are best in all of Laos & Gluten free!
