There are 2 Patuxay outlets...one in the city nearly opposite Joma cafe...this is a small takeaway ....OUR Patuxay cafe is off the 3rd road at the top of Patuxay Monument...and I love this place...the menu is simple..the food good...and usually the service is great....remembering this is Laos...things sometimes go astray and awry...but overall this little haven doesn't disappoint :)
