We had a wonderful outdoor lunch at Khe-Yo. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful in educating us about the food. We had a wonderful meal and enjoyed all the dishes we tried. The hen of the woods mushroom banh mi was fantastic and we...are hoping to have it again soon. We shared the grilled salmon bowl with sticky rice. Very good and very different. Our waitress suggested we try a special dish - brussell sprouts and they were terrific. Definitely on our list for another visit when we are in NYC.More

Amazing! Perfect steak! Fantastic sticky rice. Incredible pickled vegetables. I can't wait to go to Laos so I can eat the whole place! Great experience. Beautiful restaurant. Lunch specials are divine.

Khe-Yo has such delicious food, I’m still thinking about the rice dish I got. The interior is very lovely and great for different types of groups. The only part of my experience that was slightly off putting was the way in which the waiter dealt...with my gluten allergy. They have several gluten free dishes, but he would sometimes answer questions in a convoluted manner. In my experience, it is always best to be clear and direct when speaking about allergies, which is something I recommend Khe-Yo make a priority for their staff. I would definitely return and had such an amazing meal.More

The food was amazing. The dishes are made on a next level quality. The prices are exaggerated expensive.

Go here, eat everything, leave happy. Had a selection of veggie and meat due to a group of us, and some of the flavours i have never tried before were outstanding. Just an amazing experience of flavour and texture. You have to go.

Low key Laotian dinner experience. Great food and great ambiance. Food pretty authentic! Also responsible, sustainable sourcing, which is great. Great place to go out with friends and have fun.

Wow! A friend of mine brought me to Khe-Yo, and what a great find. It's a fairly small place a couple blocks north of Chambers St station. Interior has a country feel with lots of wood and brick walls. Can also get a bit noisy....The food is stellar, and true to what you'll find in Laos, right down to the rice being served in little woven bamboo baskets. We ordered a few plates to share: beef jerky, quail, lobster noodles. It was quite a feast, and all dishes excellent. The cocktails are the work of a mad genius as well, leading us to have probably more than we should have. At least I didn't have to work the next day!More

I met a few friends here for drinks. The bar in front of the restaurant was a good meeting spot. We did not have dinner but will be back to try it.

Came here back in July and was blown away by the food so now whenever I’m in town I make sure I visit this place. Food is incredible, highly recommend the crispy pork and chicken sausage to start followed by the whole Branzino (sea bass)....Delicious, I could eat the entire menu and this is not something you will find anywhere. Restaurant and service was great too. Can’t wait for my next visit.More
