We ate here twice and had a great time as it is centrally located, they have a great selection of house infused whiskeys and it is a great meeting point for friends. The drinks were good and the place is comfortable. It can get full...More

What you'd expect for a town which is always just a 1 night stopover place. The food was fine although it took 3 attempts before I found something on the menu that they had all the ingredients for. Service was a bit hit and miss...More

Starting with the positives, this bar /café served up delicious evening meals. The yellow curry was really good, very fresh and a good sized portion. My hubby had steak which was also tasty. The prices are fair and are no higher than the rest of...More

Food is pretty good. We ate evening meal and returned for breakfast. The service however is slow....and I mean slow. Even by Lao standards. A smile would not go amiss either...in this land of smiles. I think I'll try and find somewhere else....
