“A peaceful little place with fresh, yummy food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2010

My son told me about this place very near the US Embassy and That Dam. I finally went with my son and discovered this is a wonderful place to escape from the stress of work or walking around the city. Pok, the lady who runs the place, is a bright, happy, friendly person who always has a ready smile for all who come to her clean restaurant. Look for the little place with green benches and tables outside. They have inside seating and some nice souvenirs inside as well. Lao & English spoken and I've heard Pok speak other languages too with the diners. Not all of the staff speak English, but their menu is in English so it's easy to order if the English speakers are not there. Get the Phad Si Ew (sp?). It's my favorite!

“"Just For Fun" --- A Very Nice, Clean Restaurant With A Small Courtyard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2010

I accidentally stumbled upon "Just For Fun" --- a clean, cool, very, very nice restaurant, with friendly, gracious, service and a mellow, unrushed atmosphere.

"Just For Fun" is at 132 Chanthakumman Road, Ban Sisaketh, Chanthabouly District in Vientiane.

The salads are fresh and tasty, with good dressings (sour and mustard with shallots)and one can request extra papaya or mango. There is also Lao salad, and Japanese style tofu salad.

There are also various different chicken, pork, and beef dishes, which I did not try, but the vegetarian eggplant was excellent.

There are French baguettes, and one really great appetizer (with a glass of wine) is the grilled baguette with eggplant, tomato basilica, olive oil and garlic. Yum!

This is just a really easy, nice, simple place with a very mellow vibe.

According to the business card, it is open Monday-Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m..

Just For Fun is near Thaddam, the US Embassy, and the Asia Pavillon Hotel.
