We went three time to "Mama Alex" and it was all the times great food. Yes, you have to wait, because she prepares every single meal fresh! but it's absolutely worth it!
Go for the farmer breakfast and the green curry. Thank you Mama Alex, with every single meal you've put a smile on our face.

Alex's is not on the mainroad. It's the first small road to the right, coming from the bridge.
The place is quite charming. I got the dish with ginger, special mushrooms, onions and rice. I can not remember the name but it was super good! Also the shakes they make, are super tasty! Prices are average for Nong Khiaw.

I'd like to recommend this above-average restaurant for its atmosphere, good local cuisine and the charming owner - an elderly lady who is manager, chef and waiter all wrapped up into one. The fish in banana leaf, served with purple sticky rice was salty but very tasty. The ambiance was beautifully authentic - both rustic and classy, and absolutely no kitschy lights or "cill out music". I'd like to come here again.

Loved our breakfast here, "traditional Lao farmer breakfast." Enough energy to go out in the fields all day. Or in our case, be lazy in a hammock.

The owner is super friendly and kind. Coffee, while still totally diesel fuel, came with both fresh and condensed milk, which is a very welcome little touch.

For those complaining about the length of time for food to come out, welcome to Laos!

The place is small but the food is great ! We enjoyed vegetable green curry, one of the specialties of the restaurant.
