“Tasty food and excellent service”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We ended up here after finding only sleeping staff at a neighbouring restaurant. The staff here were very attentive. We ordered a chicken burger and fries - very tasty. There is an interesting garden area out back which would be nice in the evenings. We visited at lunch and stayed close to the fans. A good place to have a satisfying meal.

“Looks great and has a nice atmosphere”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Great looking place and the staff are very attentive, the drinks are priced okay and the some of but food is kinda expensive and not great, I ordered fried noodle with tofu which according the menu was to come with a soup, along came my rice which was good I waited for the soup and was waiting for my wife to get her spicy salad.....eventually I ate mine and 15 minutes later along comes the salad which had a slight off taste to it. Waited for my soup which I asked to have curry in and it never came,wasn't worth complaining as the English is only just good enough. Paid up and left. We will go back

“Delicious Food and Drinks!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We decided to dine at Lao Lao Garden as per a friend’s recommendation and loved her suggestion. Their menu includes Lao food with a French flair, but also has Western options. At this point in the trip I was craving bread, so I ended up getting a delicious chicken sandwich on a baguette and loved it! Aside from great food, the bar runs happy hour all day long. Finally, on the back of the menu the owner (I imagine to be an expat) provides helpful reminders on how to be a culturally sensitive tourist when traveling in Laos (and everywhere for that matter).

“Solid, reliable bar and restaurant”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We've been here twice and both times the food, drink, and service were not standout but always good. If you're just looking for a good bite and/or drink in a decent atmosphere, this is a nice place to swing by. Tips: the standard bbq setup is enough to feed 2 so is good value if you split. And local liquor cocktail menu is decent with great value during happy hour.

“Little pricey but beautiful place”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Off a recommendation, we ate here one night in LP. The prices i thought were a bit steep, but that of course is comparing it to the street food. It was exclusively patronized by tourists, many who were power drinking on our visit.
On the plus however, the two rice noodle dishes we ordered (19,000k each, cheapest on the menu), were quite delicious. the ambiance of the place is absolutely gorgeous, with multiple tiers of heavy jungle atmosphere, candles, water features, and tree lights.
