The restaurant looks like a shanty made of ply wood and cardboard, nonetheless the quality of the food is, without doubt, Jamil's redeeming feature! There' s only a certain number of dishes on the menu, yet everything is fresh, reasonably priced and with generous size portions. Although a teeny tiny bit too bland for our palates, in general the food is a very nice alternative to Lao cuisine.
We found the staff friendly and extremely attentive, with definitely adds to the atmosphere of this place (another thing would be a hilarious performance by a French drag queen who sat at a neighbouring table. Not sure if this is a regular show at Jamil's or a one-off that we were just lucky to come across. I'm not making this up).
One thing to beware of, in particular if you're a bit camera shy, is the owner constantly snapping pictures and recording videos of all customers eating at the restaurant. We didn't mind, but one may not like that.
