After falling sick in Vang Vieng, Otherside had the jacket potato of dreams. They've got easy food like pizza etc, as well as local dishes and shakes. Had a lovely dinner here and went back for breakfast too. Decent.

Nice place for lazy days and/or resting after tubing. Like all the neighbor restaurants, they have friends playing non stop. The food is good. Lao standard. I liked the tofu noodle soup, but expect a sodium bomb! For those who don't care about watching tv, they have tables in the back with the prettiest view!

One of the few restaurants in the city that has Friends playing non-stop (even during breakfast!), this is a great place to chill out and watch some TV while having a beer and a meal. Good food, good price, and friendly (but sometimes hard to flag down) staff. In between the "rasta" bars - perfect location. You can sit in... More

We simply ordered a few currys to warm us up during the freak cold days this year, and this place did exactly what we were looking for. Cheap, decent meal whilst watching a bit of friends to pass the time.

This place was quite terrible. We sat to watch friends and have our breakfast, ordered coffees and some food. Some food came and looked almost uncooked and other food just didn't come. No service unless you want to pay. Even if you want to watch friends. Don't eat here.

...but not funny, because the food was also terrible. Staff made us feel very uncomfortable, were rude, got our orders wrong and didn't apologise but acted as if it was our fault. We asked for two drinks. One came out, had to ask three times for the other and it was the wrong one. The waiter yelled at us that... More

The food is very poor. If you want the views and friends TV show on loop go next door, at least the staff is civil

Looked at the old reviews and got say that this is noting like my experience last night. Great food, served quickly and by excellent friendly staff. Superb views over the river and real value for money. Mind your step as you go down the stairs to the loo. Would return and that is saying something by me for what is... More

The food was okay (nothing special, but okay). But one of the waiter is either a lunatic or just very rude. When i asked for a menu, he said nothing, but started making weird faces and whistling. He was looking at me like i was an idiot and like he was making fun of me. I asked for a menu... More
