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...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....More
