Excellent settings, rare products, friendly atmosphere, welcoming staff and the best chicken burger I had in years! A selection of cheese to die for!

“Definitely worth seeking out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

This is outside my normal stomping grounds, but definitely worth the drive, especially if you happen to be at Mannie Spa beforehand! Fascinating menu, well-prepared food, charming hosts...and great burgers!

“Charming Chanmaly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

There was clearly a lot of thought put into creating Chanmaly and menu, and as a result you reap the rewards of a lovely dining experience for lunch or dinner. The front garden seating, lounge area and dining room provide a clean, comfortable and cozy setting to relax and escape while relishing nice food. We have enjoyed every meal, from crisp fresh salads, tarts, skewers, varied burgers and tapas. By the way, they have the best French fries in town - golden and crunchy! Their Sunday brunch menu is terrific, even offering a hearty Hangover platter. They also offer a nice variety of cocktails and wine by the glass, and you can be sure the wine has not been sitting around for a while.

Vientiane has lots to offer when after something good to eat. However, Chanmaly, is one of just a handful of places you can go to really enjoy your entire dining experience. Surrounded by charming decor and nice background music, this little cafe is the kind of place you want to stay for a while longer to try just one more of the tasty dishes. You can be sure that the service is always excellent since the friendly young owners are always there to greet you with a smile, take your order, and check in on the quality of the food they serve. Unpretentious, affordable and quality meals - a very welcomed addition to the Vientiane scene. I recommend checking their FB page for info on special events and bookings on weekends.

“Good tapas and beer selection, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

We ate here with a few friends and had a very good time.
We only had tapas-style dishes but the rest of the menu also looks very good. The tapas dishes were very good and had a few items you don't normally see like mini burgers. The meat skewers are absolutely delicious. There was a pretty good selection of European beers and a small wine list.
There is seating inside and out, although note it's a fairly busy road. The décor and generally ambience were very pleasant and service was friendly.
