Visited this restaurant as a walk in. I noted later, whilst awaiting my dinner, that some people had booked.
The building and ambiance of the restaurant were the initial attractive features that made me pause to inspect and finally request a table.
The staff were efficient and there were enough to accommodate the number of guests. No backpackers here, mostly visitors of a mature age, couples seeking a romantic dinner and a number of single American businessmen. Perhaps the advertisement of being recognised by the New York Times, plastered out the front of the building had drawn them in!
The Laotian food was good, although the Spring Rolls seemed rather greasy.
Compared to other places nearby, it was pricy.
