This restaurant serves good fresh food at reasonable cost but the best thing is the marginalised children are trained in restaurant skills. It is a pleasure to watch these youngsters interact with their teachers. They all deserve success

This restaurant serves delicious food and has excellent customer service. And, it's a social enterprise that gives marginalized and at-risk youth the chance to receive professional restaurant training, safe accommodation and counselling, including work placement support. Lots of sins at this lovely spot.

Great place - lovely space, simply exceptional staff (it is a training restaurant for disadvantaged persons) and an innovative, tasty Lao cuisine menu. Cater for gluten free - food was excellent, wine available by the glass. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.
