This place looks like a fancy restaurant. But the price is not so expensive. The food is great. Larb is very nice. It is the local cuisine. They have many rice to choose, steam rice, sticky rice, red/brown rice. The staff can not speak english so well, but they try their best to help.

A delightful restaurant serving excellent Lao dishes. We were there with some Lao colleagues for a business lunch. The atmosphere was very calming and there was an extensive menu. Very easy to over-order though!

Lovely local cuisine, but clearly a place tourists come for the whole cultural experience. In saying that, the range and taste of dishes matched everything I'd experienced in other local restaurants in Vientiane.

The place is nice and was quite busy. Staff are helpful - not much English spoken so we were grateful to our guide who translated. Food was nice , not innovative or exciting . Was not good enough to return.

Cheap prices and good food if somewhat plain in certain dishes. Be selective in what you choose. Easy to find as friendly staff.

Stopped in here for lunch while travelling around Lao on business. Food quality was reasonable, cost very cheap. Service was good. Good lunch option but would choose others for dinner

Sort of a bungalow - with small garden and parking; by the main road. Cosy interiors. Good service. Food - acceptable. Best part was having live traditional Lao music and dance while dining.

This place is very nice, the food is great, service accurate and the decoration good. Lao food is very tasty and you can try several different dishes. Meat, fish, rice and noodles, everything is good.

Thank Francesco P
