“Excellent Place”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I love the Kangaroo Sunset Bar and one day I will return (I live in Florida so vowing to return is no small promise). The food is great but the people who work there are even better. The owner and staff made the trip to Vang Vieng special. If you are in VV, you are crazy not to go there.

We came in one afternoon for lunch and had a burger and some salad. The owner, Keo, and his friend Will, chatted us up. That night, on the way back to the hotel, we stopped by for a quick bite and a drink. We ended up staying until closing time, and then heading to the local after-hours club with the Keo, staff, and other patrons. The next day, we were invited to go tubing, but regretfully couldn't make it.

Vang Vieng was a highlight of a 5 week trip to Asia because of the Kangaroo Sunset Bar. If you are in Vang Vieng, you need to make sure you go there, and strike up a conversation with Keo and Will. Who knows, maybe they'll give you a local Vang Vieng experience of a lifetime. Tell them some tall American said they have the best Greek Salad in Asia.

“A great place for fun and friends!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

This bar has everything you need...tasty food of all kinds, pool table, open atmosphere. Not to mention the staff is awesome. The owner, Keo, made my group feel like we were neighborhood friends while passing through a couple of nights in Vang Vieng. This would totally be my 'regular spot' if I spent more time in Laos.

The Lao food is good, the Western style food is good...and beverages are flowing. Good times, good times! Don't miss it.

“fun place, its what you make it!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

It's just a basic little place on the corner near the bridge but we had a great time there. Food was pretty good but its the little laos owner who makes it! He knows Aussies very well and loves to joke around, be aware he swears a bit so not a place if your not the 'relaxed' type. He was so helpful getting us a good car home, booked our day trips. The guys got a little rowdy one night and he joined in and made it like a house party, free shots and all. (4 people rather drunk cost about $50) if your in the mood to have fun it's a good place but you make your own fun as its not a busy bar.
