“A huge disappointment”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Absolutely terrible service, we were overcharged for an entire meal we didn't eat. After much polite and amicable explaining on our part, the staff and manager refused to admit they had made a mistake and so we ended having to pay the extra.

This put such a downer on the evening and our whole stay in Luang, a total disaster, please avoid at all costs! There are so many nice restaurants in the city, don't risk this nightmare of a place.

Good luck in finding a less ridiculous establishment!

“Good restaurant”
Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We were taken to Coconut Garden by our tour guide. The restaurant was busy with nice atmosphere. Service a little slow but not sure if that might have been because we were a larger party. The food was of a very good standard, good value including the wine. Recommended.

“Cool lights at night...and soft icecream”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

We were there in August 2012, the lights were what drew us in the the place. We sat on the street level, it had a relaxed and professional atmosphere. Prices were reasonable and you can't beat the location on your way to the night market.

“Nice, but expensive lunch”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We decided to stop in here for a quick lunch before the Palace Museum was opening at 1:30pm.
The atmosphere was great. Lots of different places to sit, all with a very enchanting experience. The drinks were quite expensive (beer was 18000 kip). We opted for fruit shakes (15000kip) that weren't anything spectacular. I remember thinking "we could have had 3 of these on the street for that price".

For lunch we ordered a baguette, which was delicious and pad thai, also very good. The service was friendly and prompt. They even called our hotel to pick us up on our request. The bill wasn't unreasonable, but it seems to be more of a dinner place. Our portions were perfect for lunch. The pad thai was very nice. I'd recommend that for 35 000 kip.
