The highlight of this restaurant--- the owner is adorable. She's very friendly and so happy all the time. My husband and I ate at the restaurant twice while in Nong Khiaw. The green curry with chicken was amazing. Papaya salad wasn't as good (too much fish sauce). We also tried the cheesecake, which was interesting. Don't expect a western style... More

We visited late some evening and I had some strange meal that was kind of pizza bread with lot of ketchup on it and but it was very tasty! White wine was cheap!

Nice little place, enjoyed the lay out and decoration. Had the laos farmer breakfast which was superb for only 20.000kip. I was so pleasantly surprised when the plate came with that purple jasmine sticky rice, as opposed to normal white rice! After weeks travelling around asia, I am a bit sick of white rice and usually brown rice costs extra.... More

Asked for pineapple juice without sugar. Got sweet something with pineapple flavor, likely a cheap fruit drink from a box (though they had fresh fruit on display), moreover for a price that would be high even for the fresh juice... I would not recommend. :(

Very nice owner that cooks really good food. You can have local food or international (burger, pasta). We tried the local food which was very good!

We visited here twice during our short stay in Nong Khiaw. The local Lao food is really incredible! We didn't try the Western food because... well why would you? We tried the green curry with chicken, the Lao sausage, an out-of-this-world dish called "kai phat med mak muang" (chicken-veggies-cashew stirfry), and the chicken pad thai that comes in an egg...

Came here a few times for breakfast while in Nong Khiaw. We tasted the grandmas breakfast and the pancake which we're both well priced, filling, and tasty. The Lao coffee was also yummy! Inside is a little dark, but besides that it's a good bet.

Thank chelseaarielle
