We may have picked an off night but after an hour we left. They had delivered 2 of the 5 items we ordered, one being an indelible papaya salad and the other being a bottke of water. I think there was too much fish sauce because it smelled horrible. So between that and an hour wait, we cut our losses. It does have a nice position on the river but there are many to choose from. I don't recommend this restaurant.

This is a lovely, modest little restaurant, serving delightful and delicately flavoured food at very reasonable prices. The Orlam is excellent - a complex set of flavours that you would pay a fortune to taste elsewhere. The service is charming and mannerly, and not overly attentive and slightly cloying. We would recommend this place strongly.

We decided to give this place a try after wandering the streets. We were not dissappointed! This was one of the best meals we had in Laos. Affordable enough to try a lot of different dishes.

The bathroom was indeed a little bit "quaint" to say the least... in a house across the street. Heck, its part of the cultural experience. This ain't disney land after all!

Idyllic setting by the nam khan river especially as the light fades in early evening. My wife had a traditional Lao dish which was an unpleasant gelatinous slop - so be sure to like trad. Lao cuisine b4 u order it. My soup was ok and the spring rolls were nice. My wife described the toilet as disgusting with no flush, no sink and the family having dinner in the next room - was also across the road and a fair walk from the restaurant. Staff were very friendly.
