The problem with being in the Lonely Planet is that it then attracts all the tourists to go there and gradually over a period of time the food preparation changes from true local cuisine to "tourist tastes". Based on the number of places we tried we would have to say that this is one of the better ones. They have not westernised it too much. It's cheap for us but not by Loas standards.
Don't be put off by the drab look, inside they speak English and will try to tailor it to your tastes if you ask them. Also remember in Laos all dishes come together and they don't distinguish between starter and main course. You just muck in and generally all dishes are shared with whomever is eating.
