“Great Lao/Thai food”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

As with all other reviews, we thought this place was great. The staff are friendly and food is very good. We had the red curry with chicken, larp with pork and papaya salad - all were delicious. Big portions too so we were stuffed. Didn't find anywhere else in Vang Vieng with such tasty Asian food.

“Fantastic food!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

It was a great place, small with only a few tables. The food is fantastic, the best we ate after a month in the region. We had only 2 nights in the city and those 2 days we went to eat there having 4 different dishes and all where excellent.

“Great find”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Our hotel was close by so it was easy to find. It is a bit removed from the main part of town. The restaurant was very clean and the menu was all in English with plenty of pictures. I ordered the curry powdered chicken and my partner ordered chicken stir fry (medium heat) and both came with a large portion of steamed rice. The food was fresh and well prepared. Each dish was about $4. We were still a bit hungry and ordered a third dish to share. With beverages, the bill was about $15. The owner/chef seems to have a good understanding of English....servers have less. Charming staff, clean restaurant and a very good kitchen. What's not to like about this place. A definite recommendation.

“Amazing, wonderful, excellent: the best Laotian food!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

This is by far the best Laotian food we've had in Laos. Since said the food is unbelievable, it is too bad that we found it on our last day in vang vieng. However, we had lunch and dinner there. For lunch, we had papaya salad, chicken padkapao, chichen fried dried curry, and sticky rice with mango. Every dish was excellent!

For dinner, we had pork lab, chicken red curry soup, chicken satay, Lao salad, and again sticky rice with mango. Once again the food was marvelous!

This is not a luxurious place, indeed it is quite simple and plain. Yet it is very clean. The cook who also served us for lunch was quite friendly. At dinner tine, the cook/owner had two young ladies assist her. Needless to say, the service was great in both occasions. We had to wait a bit as she makes one dish at a time. But a 30-45 minutes wait for an amazing food is quite worth it.the food prices are quite reasonable.

As another reviewer mentioned, I would fly to Vang Vieng only to eat here. Thanks trip advisors reviewers for this world class recommendation! This is a fenomenal place and hope to eat here again soon....

“Amazing! Go there”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

It is quite difficult to find mostly because the location as found on TA is wrong, we sent them the correct location and we hope they fix it.
Location: http://goo.gl/maps/272Zv
Basically it is by the river, you need to pass the Elephant Crossing (the big bridge where elephant can cross) about 100m on the right.

We went there once following all the recommendations on TA and kept going there.
Their shakes are amazing especially the mix one. They also have an amazing Lao salad and Chicken satay and chicken soup. All of their fried rice dishes are amazing, I really liked the chicken cashew nuts.
Basically they do the same food as all other restaurants do in VV but they do it good.
The Service is lovely as well and as I mentioned the cook, which is the waiter's\Owner wife has a magic touch in her hands.
We told them we will try and fix their location on TA, hope that did the trick.
* Really loved the music over there.
* AMD is the name of their daughter :-)
