“Good food, great views”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Good food, ok prices, fabulous views. Ate here a couple of times while in Vang Vieng. They show non-stop episodes of Friends on large flat screen TV's at the front of the restaurant and music videos at the rear. All seating is low floor seating with pillows. Can get a lot of mosquitos at the rear of the restaurant where it backs on to the river, so bring bug spray. Service was generally very good and staff were always really chatty and friendly.

“Nice for a hangout”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Among other similar places, I found this to be the preferable to just hang out for a couple of hours. Waiters weren't pushy and very friendly, food was fresh (though basic) and priced just right. If you want to lie down under that fan for a couple of hours ('Friends' will be pushed to your face though), that's a nice choice.

“Exactly what you would expect”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Whilst in Vang Vieng we have tried out a few places and this was one of our favorite places because of the friendly staff, cheap prices and reasonable food. The asian dishes are all of a decent quality. We did also have nachos which were not great but that is all make back up with their epic coconut shake. It is one of the friends bars so dont go expecting fancy food but if you want some decent food at a very good price in a relaxed atmosphere then give this a go. They also often bring you some free drinks to keep you there and have free wifi.

“Go next door”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

This place was ok, food was average. The thing that made our visit to this restaurant a disaster was one of the workers here who made us really uncomfortable by putting on weird voices and constantly bothering us. In my opinion I recommend you go next door to banana restaurant, it has exactly the same menu minus the rude and unprofessional staff.

“You Will Go Here Eventually”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

This is one of the restaurants that extends onto the waterfront. Most of the restaurants are interchangeable as far as quality and pricing goes, Otherside is no different. It has decent food, decent prices, a good view, and partially working Wi-Fi (as do the neighbors).

It also is one of the many bars that play Friends all day so that travelers can avoid traveling.
