This is a little walk away from the main bar/restaurant strip and we only visited after seeing good reviews. It's a small bar / restaurant with a pool table near the river. It was low season when we were there so the bar was quiet, but the owner Keo came and chatted with us and poured us some great cocktails - heavy on the alcohol, light on the mixers! The Beer Lao burgers were genuinely really really good.

Went for food and a few drinks here with friends tonight. Free cocktails for ladies, it was ladies night! Yummy cocktails too. Ate onion rings which were amazing and the cheeseburger was pretty good too, loads better than most burgers I've had in south east asia. Friendly staff, good vibe and the owner is such a genuinely nice guy. Wish we were staying in Vang Vieng longer, I would definitely go back!

Note, they have recently changed location, now in middle of town, just down the road from the Garys Irish Bar.

Nice enough spot and good bang for your buck. On the front of the menu it reads that all food is prepared fresh, washed in clean water, trained chefs etc which is comforting. There are certainly better restaurants but for the price you pay it's hard to complain.

Due to the high prices at the restaurant in the hotel we were staying at, we came up the driveway and found the Kangaroo Sunset which is down the quieter end of town on the way to the caves. The food was fresh and delivered quickly. We shared a Lao chicken curry and chicken burger with the best crisp, crunchy fries unlike the greasy ones we've had so far in Laos. Great tasty fresh food.

Kangaroo Sunset has been the highlight of Vang Vieng for us! we have ate here every day when we stay in her. Because the food is amazing, or for the incredible views& the friendly relaxed atmosphere. The staff awalys made a great job of making everyone feel welcome.
