Went here as we wanted to find something small to eat. Decided on one of their sandwiches and i did not regret it at all. Hot and fresh from the oven, the sandwich (more like ham and cheese in a small baguette) was worth it. There were two rolls and the drinks are nice. The atmosphere was relaxing and even... More

I always go there every time I visit Vientiane. It is a great place to work given the wifi, to have a cup of coffee and some decent desserts. Location: centrally located near the river and night market. Price: fixed price but not cheap Taste: The desserts are good and quiche are great. Coffee is also great! Staff: Friendly enough... More

I needed ice cream and was in the area so I popped in here rather than moving across town to better known ice cream venues. The flavours were limited and they did not have any chocolate ice cream (is that legal?). I had a couple of generous scoops of cookies and cream. It was pretty good and cost just 18,000... More

I liked it. Just reminded me of a standard coffee shop from home. Decent deco, good selection of pastries and cakes. Price okay/standard for coffee place and wifi which is nice. Seems like a good place to passerbys to chill by during the day and I enjoyed my frappe latte. My partner in crime couldn't grasp why his iced Americano... More

Decent drinks and an ever-so friendly staff. First time we were here, it was pouring and we sought shelter. Staff did not insist that we order anything. Second time we came, they were very accommodating as we chatted till 11pm. Then they turn on the music to nudge us out :-). Cool atmosphere when the weather is unbearably hot or... More

Last week I went to Vientiane for business trip. That is the first time I drink ice cappuccino at Sinouk. It is very nice coffee. The taste is good. Smell is very well. I can say Sinouk is the one of coffee you should try, while you are in Vientiane

It became my spot. I was having the same thing everyday: hot green tea cappuccino with a pineapple tart and/or the dark truffle that I strongly recommend!

Good location for people watching as you drink your coffee. Friendly staff and free wifi. I had a lovely Croque Madame and the best banana shake I've had for ages. I returned the next morning for same again

I ate there 3 times during my stay (it was across the street from my hotel). The first time I had Pad Ka-Prao, my standby dish at home in Thailand. This was very good. Not sure how the rest of the Lao/Thai food is, but I would recommend trying it. The other times I had a special...first a fried chicken... More
