“Long established - very popular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

I believe that Simmaly has been established by the same family for 15 years so they must be doing something good - The food is mostly Lao with some Western - But you did not come to Lao for Fish & Chips - It is very popular with both locals and tourists - Is a little cheaper that some others and good value.

I have eaten here sveral times in the last couple of weeks and will be back before I leave in another 2 weeks

“Large portions of pretty bland food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Not very good, quite bland flavors but large portions and quite cheap. Singa on the other side of the road was much better

“Good local cafe, cheap honest Lao food”

This was a great find. Fast service, good food, and a tiny bill.

Their we're mainly Lao eating here. Menu has some breakfast options.

“Blah.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

Very average and unmemorable. Very bad and watery curry. My boyfriend did better with fried rice, but there's nothing overly interesting on the menu. The place seemed clean and was quite busy, but the food was totally blah. You would do much better by going to Nisha's down and across the street about two blocks further (even if it's Indian food). Believe me!
