“Inconsistent and Disappointing”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

We ate here twice. On the first occasion the service and food were acceptable for the price point - roughly 15 USD per head including drinks. We ate Lao food which was tasty, and a pasta plate for our toddler. Second time round the service was pretty poor, beer was warm, and we were overcharged for our toddler's plate of plain pasta. Would only return for the stuffed bamboo shoots which were excellent.

“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.
