Outstanding service staff, superbly attentive, chilled mint scented face towel on arrival, gorgeous patio overlooking the Mekong River with soothing breeze from a nearby fan.

Noodle soup, a ubiquitous Lao dish, usually about 15 kips around town served at the restaurant for 75 kips.

Enough said.

Very pleasant environment with a good view of the river. Very good service, cold flannel to start and end the meal.

Food was mostly very good. The buffalo salad, chicken curry and fried flat noodles with beef were all very tasty. Buffalo stew was a little disappointing.

Prices relatively very expensive.

Stopped off for lunch and had the daily special....grilled chicken, sticky rice and cucumber salad. Silly me as the chicken was so dry and chewy i was wondering how it has such great reviews. Never again!

We had dinner here because we were staying near the restaurant and we couldn't find many other places to eat. The food was average, but quite expensive compared to other restaurants in town. To top it off, the credit card machine was not working so we had to pay in cash - but we did not have enough cash on hand so we had to run back to the hotel to get cash.
