We just returned from dinner here and it was excellent. I had the chicken laap and my husband had the crying tiger beef laap. Both were excellent and each had its own unique flavor. Service was very good, too, which is rare in Laos. And it was about the same price as a lot of mediocre places we've eaten. I highly recommend a meal here if you are in Vientiane.

There's a chance we might have ordered the wrong entrees. My girlfrind and i both ordered two separate chicken dishes that seemed to be the exact same meal (with two different names). Plus, when we sat down we asked if they take credit cards to which they replied 'yes'. When the bill came, they gave us a waving finger charade indicating they don't accept credit as payment... It was a little awkward since we didn't have any Kip on us at the time.

Came here for lunch on the last day of my stay in Laos. It's a great place to enjoy authentic Lao cuisine at affordable prices. If I can have a dish on its menu for lunch everyday, it would be their laap. The duck laap was very good! Thumbs up! Price wise it's about the same as your normal Lao restaurants.

We went here on the recommendation of some expat locals- the restaurant is clean, with beautiful photos of laos as decor. The service is friendly and attentive and the food was some of the best we had in Laos. The papaya salad is great, as are some of the meat dishes- a tad spicy, but just the way we liked it. You MUST treat your taste buds and come here!

This is a very good choice for good and freshly-cooked Lao food. The restaurant is very clean, service is very good, and excellent value for money.

We went here twice and it is obviously very popular with both locals, visitors and expats - the restaurant was full on both evenings.
