Based on the tripadvisor reviews, four of us showed up without reservations for dinner. The place was packed and we were very politely but firmly told that there was no way they could feed us that night. We returned for lunch the following day and were seated promptly. Sat outside on their pleasant patio and watched the bustle of the street while we ate. Well worth a visit for the site, the cause and the food which was good and well presented.

We tried to get in on our first night but they were fully booked & also fully booked the following night. We booked in for our final night in Vientianne and it was definitely worth waiting for. Service is good but slow and the food was the best we had in Vientianne, definitely local and not catering for tourists!

We loved this place as we were served very tasty food in a comfortable, casual environment. Based on previous TripAdvisor reviews tried the eggplant dip which is fantastic, especially when washed down with ice cold beer Laos. We weren't too fussed on the beef rolls but everything else was so good, can't really complain.

Yes, great cause. Ends there. Food is highly inconsistent. In fact had spring rolls and chewed on a piece of metal, about the size of a pea. They did not see too excited about it. Had the curry 3 times, and it was different 3 times and none of which were good. Service overall was good, but clearly you are taking your chances on having that amazing dining experience in this capital.
