Easy to arrive there! I eat a typical Laos menu which was delicious. It was a 6 plates menu, different, with a delicious Laos taste! Price, Kits Kips 180.000 = US 19,50! Worth a lot your money!

Well known by all the hotels as a top choice for a treat and still as good as our first time here 5 years ago. First class service, delicious food and wine to die for. Perfect as a farewell treat to this amazing city.
