Of the 12 or so restaurants I visited on my trip to Vientiane, this was my favorite. Their lunch buffet for $12 (or 98k kip) is an extraordinary value. The buffet includes a range of appetizers and sides (cold cuts, salads, vegetables, etc), your choice of entree (3 options that change daily), plus a very good selection of desserts. In addition, you get several drink options. I can't imagine there being a better value in town.

Although not everything is great, the quality overall is quite high. It was the only restaurant I visited more than once during my 5 day trip in Vientiane. Definitely recommend coming for lunch to get the buffet (Monday - Friday only, opens at 11:30).

The food, especially their signature black-dough pizza, is great, but some portions are a bit small for the price. The staff are very knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating.

Ate outside on a hot day in March - fan was OK. Service from unobtrusive and efficient waiter. Wines by the glass were good value relatively speaking. Gnocchi quite good as was sauce. Upper middle priced restaurant, but still good value. Last time I ate the chefs food was about 11 years ago in a previous incarnation near Namphu Square. Still reliable.

They are trying to be very high class place, but the problem is, that there is not enough skillfull personnel available. It seems that two persons on the waitering staff have ever tasted wine. And kitchen is not running any better...
