This cute tucker away cafe offers delicious fresh food for great prices considering its Vientiane. I got a Phad Laos for 15k kip and a coconut coffee (which was amazing, I highly recommend it) for 12k kip. If you're on a budget and need a feed, come find it tucked down an alley!

Tucked away at the end of an alley that comes off of a side street about 15 minutes from the city centre, Kung's will not be stumbled upon but it is worth the effort. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. Rumour has it that Obama wanted to visit when he was in Vientiane in Sept 2016, but security... More

This cafe is located a little away (maybe 15 min walk) from the main tourist/restaurant area, but is well worth the effort. We visited twice for lunch and enjoyed both visits. The fish curry was delicious and the baguettes on the second visit were also good (though if you are hungry enough go for a hot dish). Very reasonable prices... More

Tucked away down a quiet street, there is this calm oasis of cool food - what a lovely hideaway. Was busy for a Monday lunchtime which always encourages me to feel positive about a place. Had a great dish of pork phad Thai, with a cooling lemonade. Typical SE Asian service - in their own time - but I'm ok... More

There were no tripadvisor hours listed, and I read a couple of the other reviews to determine if they were open for dinner or not. I couldn't tell, but it looked like they were. We trekked out in the dark to find this difficult to locate restaurant, and with some effort found the small lane it is located on. Big... More

Went there yesterday. The place is a restaurant/street food at the end of a quiet local street. Good food, charming people and very nice environment!! Will go back!

We looked for it for a few minutes but the pate sandwich did worth it , the mango smoothies too. Definitely should try even if visiting for one day

As vegetarians we appreciated the wide selection of dishes. I think all the entrees were 15,000 KIP. We had a coconut soup and stir fry vegetables with two ice coffee for about $5 dollars. Fresh ingredients, perfect spice and a quaint setting with lots of return business. I really miss this place.

Asia can be hectic at times, and this is just the place to escape. Hidden in the back of a narrow street, it's peaceful. I went here 2 times in one day because I was feeling so stressed out :D it's family run and they love to chat, the food is nice&cheap
