“Good Cocktails, Great Music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Came here after we were handed a flying tubing during the day. The bar staff were all really nice. Drinks were reasonably priced. The main thing that sealed the deal for me was the music. So sick of hearing 'Wrecking Ball' every 5 minutes in asia, it was nice to hear some Radiohead!

“Terrible Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

My friend and I went to the Kangaroo bar a few days ago after receiving their advertising pamphlets. Reading online reviews, we were expecting an awesome experience. We arrived, sat down, and waited about 10 minutes for a guy to come up to us and say "what do you want?" Well, some menus would be nice. We got the menus and then were told by another worker that we could not sit in our spot anymore because it was reserved (for people who never came...) annoyed, we reluctantly moved. We finally got our orders taken by a Westerner with an attitude problem who was incredibly unfriendly and rude, telling us that our orders may come out wrong because there is a language barrier between him and the local cooking staff. My friend ordered a diet coke (listed on the menu) and the response was a snotty "uhh, we don't do diet here." He also told us that if we needed anything to come up to the bar as they were short staffed, yet he didn't seem to be busy in the slightest behind the bar chatting and laughing with co-workers. We received our food, which was mediocre at best, and will never be returning to this poorly-run business.

Good burgers in LAos, the sweet onions give a great taste to the burgers. Good ambient too with a pool table and a nice bar

“Superb bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

This place is alive! Many foreigners love this place as it has cheap alcohol, good food and great music.

We spent a couple of hours there at least. Gradually the music got too loud to talk so we left.

When the keg gets back up and running this place will be even better!

“Perfect place to go after tubin'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Popular bar, free BBQ (great skewers), free vest if you buy 2 cocktails (cool designs, and great way to meet people when they recognise you were in the same bar/place as them), manager is a really cool guy and also free pool table!.. Spent most of my nights in vang vien there!
