Great place to chill, view the river, the passers by, now serving steak from restaurant below, so even wider range of food, always music, not too loud, sometimes English songs sung well, just a great place to hang and and not spend too much.

Rooftop seating is best for evening. Views across the Mekong. Local band playing. Popular with locals, but some foreigners as well. Prices are very reasonable. Staff OK, although not overly friendly.

Firstly, this restaurant will always be crowded with full of people, location is easy to find as it just located off Mekong river at the end of the night market. The food is very average and price is slightly a bit on the higher end....More
