“Exactly how a backpacker cafe should be like”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

We came to this cafe last month and loved everything about it. Great traveller vibes, lovely little terasse, nice and dedicated owner, excellent music, absolutely delicious food (though servings could be larger) and fruit juices! Wifi is working great and books are ready to be exchanged.

We came back a second time and were equally pleased. A highly recommended place to take some rest.

“Great food and very relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Very good food all round, we tried the sushi, Thai curry, samosas and their fruit shakes and they were very tasty, with fair size portions.

Good WIFI and no one in any rush to move you on at anytime

“Best place in Savannakhet”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

There's not a huge range of cafes in Savannakhet and this is the only one we found with a real traveller vibe. Every backpacker in the whole town was there, drinking tea and reading. There's a book exchange, chocolate cake and I bought a bottle opener made of unexploded ordinances. The owner seemed laid back and friendly and the bathroom was Western and clean.

“Chai Dee - no false advertising!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

The name of this cafe - Chai dee - kind hearted people, is not wrong. The staff are excellent, helpful and very friendly. Food is great. Please try the the Chai tea (even though it's Indian tea haha) We will be coming back again. Have been here 3 times already. :) (Friday's are closed)

“Perfect Chill Out Place”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is the perfect place to chill out for an hour or two; the atmosphere is really laid back, the seating is comfy and the food is absolutely delicious.
The owner is really friendly (without being pushy) and there's loads of things to keep everyone entertained i.e. novels, travel books, kids books.
I'd recommend the Japanese set menus as really good value for money, and the fruit shakes as mentioned are delicious.
It's a nice place for kids too, due to the books on offer and the welcoming environment.
