WOW. Exquisite food preparation with remarkable layers of flavor and texture. The crab yellow curry was the best we have ever had. The presentation was equally impressive. It's white table cloth so you want to do better than flip flops and tee shirts, but the...More

I loved the old Apsara food but this is a different leaque. A brand new twist on royal Laos food it knocks the socks off anything I've had anywhere else. The restaurant has also had a transformation and is elegant in a very paid back...More

We had a wonderful meal here on their gorgeous terrace. The smoked fish starter, soup and slow-cooked buffalo cheeks were particularly good with amazing flavours from very fresh ingredients. Great service and a lovely, calm atmosphere, plus stylish setting. Recommended.
