“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

It's no wonder this place is always packed: the food is always good! Very good selection of Asian and Western dishes, consistently well-prepared, nice desserts and excellent coffee. Good service, modern and airy decor, and located on the first floor with big windows, it gets plenty of natural light, making for a very pleasant place to have lunch, a bite to eat or just a drink. Very popular with locals and expats alike. Unfortunately closed evenings and Sundays!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

I have just written a review of Le Banneton which used to be very good but has really gone downhill recently. However Benoni just keeps getting better and better. Lovely, smiley staff with an owner who takes pride in her service to customers. Food choice is good, always comes well presented and in no time at all. Busy place at lunch so book

“Very popular eatery in the heart of Vientiane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Very simple, very friendly, very efficient, very popular and daily menu offering at good price. Just above the Phimphone market place and opposite the Kopchaydeu, you cannot say more central in town. But the food and the atmosphere and the winning point.

“Relaxed atmosphere and nice menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Dining at Benoni Cafe is a refreshing experience. It has a nice range of Western and Asian dishes as well as daily specials. They offer a range of American and Western-style sweets, which generally are tasty. The chocolate fondant is a little strange, lacking in a rich chocolate flavor. The cafe seems to attract a better dressed crowd than their neighbor, Joma.

Similar to many cafes in town, it is closed on Sundays.

“My wife really enjoyed herself”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Been meaning to bring my wife here for a long time. On my R&R break, found a place to park and was able to bring my wife in. As she is pregnant, she can be quite choosy with what she eats (or smells) - but had no problems. We loved the food and my wife really loved the desserts - especially the blueberry cheesecake. Now will have to bring her here every time I come back from Afghanistan.
