We went with a group for dinner. The staff were welcoming and efficient. A good range of tasty and well prepared Lao food with a very small wine list. The music and dance performance was good. Overall a pleasant experience.

Restaurant in a bungalow with nice setting and ambiance. The menu has a good selection of local Lao cuisine. Food well presented and taste good. There is a traditional dance performance in the evening. Pricing is not expensive and service is good.

Lovely restaurant in French colonial style house. Its beyond the night market towards the meeting of the two rivers. Good range of Lao food. Try the spicy tom chow pa fish. Not expensive for the food and ambience

This place looks like a fancy restaurant. But the price is not so expensive. The food is great. Larb is very nice. It is the local cuisine. They have many rice to choose, steam rice, sticky rice, red/brown rice. The staff can not speak english...More

A delightful restaurant serving excellent Lao dishes. We were there with some Lao colleagues for a business lunch. The atmosphere was very calming and there was an extensive menu. Very easy to over-order though!

Lovely local cuisine, but clearly a place tourists come for the whole cultural experience. In saying that, the range and taste of dishes matched everything I'd experienced in other local restaurants in Vientiane.

The place is nice and was quite busy. Staff are helpful - not much English spoken so we were grateful to our guide who translated. Food was nice , not innovative or exciting . Was not good enough to return.

Cheap prices and good food if somewhat plain in certain dishes. Be selective in what you choose. Easy to find as friendly staff.

Stopped in here for lunch while travelling around Lao on business. Food quality was reasonable, cost very cheap. Service was good. Good lunch option but would choose others for dinner
