Went here a couple of times while staying in Bokeo. Lovely little family run bar/restaurant on the main street, very popular with the resident tourists so it gets busy in the evenings. The food was great! Had a potato curry one evening, a burger the next (after being recommended it a number of times) and both were wonderful. Great selection... More

Decent food, quite tasty. Service was okay, although we wereconfused to be served by a girl whose age cant be over 14. Probably the best choice for dinner in houayxay.

We stayed in Houyxai for the gibbon experience so had a night either side of our tour. We walked the same street over and over to figure out where to eat. The food menu looked decent - a mix of laos and western food (though more expensive than what we had paid in Thailand)- there was some music playing and... More

The food was very tasty and the atmosphere not too bad, but was shocked to pay £5 for dinner, especially after coming from Thailand! The portions were in proportion (ish) to the cost though, all decent sized portions. My friends had the Laos sausage with rice and that were served 10 sausages and a basket of sticky rice! I had...

There are a few options in town, and this is one that seemed to be better than the rest. The food was decent, we had a curry and barbecued chicken dish. Plenty of flavor and neither of us got sick in the ensuing days. It is about as a family run of a place as you can imagine including the... More

Great bar to chill or play some darts. The selection of home brew whiskeys is endless and the food is great too.

Great food BUT the service was terrible , we went twice just to make sure we weren't dreaming it up but they just didn't want you there, wouldn't take the order, wouldn't give you plates or anything to eat with and we were the only ones there so would hate to see there attitude with a busy night

This place is terrible. The sandwich was probably the worst I've had in Laos, it was overpriced... And the staff were the worst I've encountered in a long long time. We had to go into the kitchen to get someone after sitting there (they had seen us come in and grab a table) for 15 minutes. Walked into kitchen and... More

We went in after a 12 hour bus, in desperate need of a beer. We sat down, 10 minutes later we were still sat, I got up and had to basically walk into the kitchen. There were sat laughing three members of staff who stared at me without saying a word. I asked, are we able to get a drink?... More

We ate here twice and had a great time as it is centrally located, they have a great selection of house infused whiskeys and it is a great meeting point for friends. The drinks were good and the place is comfortable. It can get full during peak ours so make a reservation or get there by 7:30pm. The food was... More
