“Very, very average. Nice view though.”
Such mixed feelings about this place.
Pros: One of the two or three best views in Houayxai, cheap beer and food, easy to find, free WiFi (password is HOUAYXAY).
Cons: Just horrible, inattentive, sneering service. I'm pretty sure the guy who owns it has his kids (and a few others) working there and they're kind of young (early-mid teens I think) but it's still a business and being ignored while the "staff" sit around watching cartoons isn't really the way forward. Crazy long menu- how can everything possibly be fresh?
I had two decent meals there: chicken koi and panaeng chicken curry. Both were pretty generously sized and the beer was nice and cold. Since most of the place is uncovered, it's scorching hot during the day unless you can find a tree to sit under in the front right hand corner. With the service being as crap as it is and the WiFi being free and the view being so good, it's very easy to spend a lot of time here, whether you want to or not.
The brand new-looking hotel next to this place is owned by the same guy. I was going to ask about rates but after my second visit to the restaurant, I was so foolishly pissed off at the service that I didn't bother. Plenty of deep breaths and counting to ten required here.
