“Amazing food on the banks of the Mekong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2011

Just a few minutes walk beyond the Vansana and Riverside hotels on the banks of the Mekong in Vientiane is this amazing food heaven called Nam Khong House & Bar. Its young chef and owner Oley cooks up a storm of delicious Thai and Lao food for incredibly cheap prices served at open air elevated tables, all of which have great views of the river. Two of us shared several courses with wine for no more than $30 I think and the food is just amazing (see photos). I returned to this restaurant for almost every meal during my three days in Vientiane. Whether it is a fruit smoothie or an elaborate multi course meal, Oley's meticulous approach is evident everywhere. I cannot single out any single dish, all the food was delicious: the spicy duck salad, sweet & sour fish, incredible mushroom and vegetable soup, steamed whole Mekong fish, papaya salad - everything. And the ever attentive service was quite a surprise compared with what I have typically experienced elsewhere. I cannot wait to return.
