The food here is excellent, and the European owner is obviously doing his best to give his customers a memorable experience, but his grumpy sour faced waitress is not helping him. I chose the menu of the day, Filet Duck Honey with salad and coffee for 55,000 kip. A good place to come if, like me you are sick of... More

It was Monday evening and there were only a couple of guests in this rather nice bar / restaurant when we arrived. We both fancied fish for dinner. My wife prefers seafood and chose the tom yam seafood together with a portion of steamed rice. The fillet of fish with a white wine sauce tempted me. This was served with... More

We just happened to walk by this place and it looked good from the street with several customers enjoying a meal. My partner chose the Rustic Crepe from the specials menu and she enjoyed every mouthful. i had the... More

I arrived for a late lunch at 3:00pm. The solitary waitress was engrossed in her smartphone behind the bar. I asked if the kitchen was open and she begrudgingly said yes. I sat at a table and nothing happened. I eventually retuirned to the bar for a menu. Nothing happened. I got up again and beckoned the waitress. She eventually... More

This was my first visit to Xang Khoo. Very nice atmosphere, clean. Menu was two laminated pieces of paper. Choices of food on both sides. I chose the tenderloin with french fries and salad. Service was relatively quick. When my food came, I looked down at the 10 mini french fries and thought, wow "cheap". As I continued to eat... More

This restaurant is located within city centre, however it is located in a small lane but there is still many people who know about this restaurant. I believed the owner is a French, but the internal decor of the restaurant is Asian fushion, though the place is not air-condition, but it is not hot neither. I have gone for dinner... More

We stopped here for lunch and were surprised to find that they specialized in galettes--savory, French buckwheat pancakes. They were delicious.

Love the crepes. Very authentic buckwheat crepes. Prices about 55000 for a full on savoury crepe. Great selection of beers. End of a little road. ..non air-condition but plenty of fans

We wanted crepes, and this restaurant has them--hearty Buckwheat crepes for main dishes and traditional dessert crepes. Other food too, including delicious pumpkin soup. We visited in April, the "low season", very few customers. Excellent food, very reasonable prices. No AC--just circling fans, so by the end of our meal we were pretty sweaty!

Service quick, efficient and genuinely friendly and welcoming. Owner / operator present and took notice of his guests adding to the pleasant atmosphere evident within seconds of entering the restaurant. We had traditional Laap food consisting of sticky rice with fried beef and lemongrass combined with a host of other vegetables, herbs and spies. Low lighting and soft music added... More
