I concur with a recent review by Stutravel. It was a pleasure to dine at Kungs, and luckily as it was quiet spend some quality time with the very lovely and humble owner Maly. She is a delight and was more than happy to chat at length with my wife and I. I encouraged her to display a bigger sign at the alleyway as it's very easy to miss and she deserves the patronage. An experience in itself.

We arrived at around 12:30 when there were about 4 tables eating/waiting to be served. The waitress ignored us so we had to find some menus. After 10 minutes of asking to order and the waitress walking away, they finally took our order. The papaya salad was inedible and we refused to pay for it and the rest of the food was tasty but very small portions. It seems like a cute little place but they need more staff if they cannot handle 4 tables. in the time we were there they got orders wrong, someone walked out from the frustration of being ignored and they took so long to bring out the food someone was late back from their lunch break, it did not seem that it is the best place to eat in vientiane!

Kungs
Found this place through a friend who'd been to Vientiane a number of times, otherwise I don't think I'd have ever uncovered this little gem which is run by the most delightful and gorgeous Maly. It's well away from the tourist hubbub and down a little narrow alleyway. But its cheap, with great food and good coffee and a quirky atmosphere. It's nothing like the touristy places in town. Make sure you have the sticky rice pancakes with mango or bananas. And if you get the chance to have a good chat to maly, who speaks good English then all the better because she's just beautiful. We spent a couple of hours in the quiet time having a really good yak and well there's not much else to do in Vientiane anyway so kungs cafe made the visit more worthwhile.

I love that Kung's is down a long alley (it is easy to miss!) that looks like the Vientiane of years ago. Great food also...
