Sat outside for a quick drink and to people watch. Very quiet and pleasant surroundings. Very extensive menu with lots of lao specialities. Food looked good but not cheap by Lao standards.

It can be surprisingly hard to find great Lao food in the tourist area of Vientiane. This restaurant is the one we keep coming back to. Lovely, friendly owner who really cares about her food - she does everything, cooking and serving, so don't expect...More
