The restaurant here has a great view up & down the Mekong. The chef used to be one of the weavers but she is definitely a great cook. The menu has all the standard Lao favorites but also some international influence. The fish is excellentMore

The Silk Road is a really nice restaurant with lots of Laotian foods and delicacies. There is an international flair too. The restaurant is below street level and colorful. The waiters and waitresses are courteous and friendly, the food is excellent!More

Charming spot. This was our first introduction to local Laotian food. To be honest, it didn’t meet my expectations at all. Flavours very much placated to western taste unfortunately. The Khao Soi served as Thai version, which I would have liked the Laos version instead....More

Description
Enjoy delicious 'East meets West' cuisine at the Silk Road Cafe. A beautiful and relaxing location in the grounds of a stunning tropical garden with sweeping views of the Mekong, just a short distance from the centre of town - 5 mn ride with our free tuk tuk available all day on demand. Watch our traditional weavers at work at the Living Crafts Centre next door. Serving breakfast and lunch as well as brunch or afternoon tea, it's the perfect place to escape and gaze across the river.
