We spent half our time on Don Det in this bar. The breakfast is delicious and you get a choice of various standard and special meals (loved the Shakshuka) for very good prices. Same for western or indian food during daytime - whatever we tried...More

This place is a great spot to hangout for a beer on the balcony, or grab a delicious curry. The potato-based curries are amazing, and cheap. Perhaps a little dark inside, and the music kept cutting off, but not far off full marks!

We're not really into going back to the same restaurant all the time but the food and vibe here was so good we came back every day. Really tasty food and very reasonable prices. The owner is super nice as well.

Lao owned and run by Nisa and her expat husband Sel. We served a wide variety of cuisine including some of the best indian and western food on the island. Browse through our music database or cue some songs on your own device. We like to serve up good times with plenty of cold Beerlao, domestic and international spirits. Riverside view just 10 meters from the beach landing of Don Det. We speak fluent English and can guide you with any query. If music is catching your ears on Don Det, there's a good chance it's the 4000 Island Bar. We want you to enjoy your stay in Southern Laos.
