Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I serendipitously found this cute restaurant as I was exploring the Main Street. Cute ambiance, food was good, staff were all friendly. I had the pleasure to dine here twice for dinner. I ordered the fish which was cooked to perfection. The rosella iced tea...complimented my dinner. You can either eat inside with the nice air conditioner or dine right just outside the restaurant. I ate inside because it was extremely warm that evening. Anyway, if you travelers happen to be in LP Main Street, look this up.More

This is a great restaurant to try Laotian food in a more Western setting. The interior is lovely, and there are also some really comfortable outdoor seats available to sit and people watch. The portions are perfect, and most dishes come with a side of...black sticky rice. The river weeds are amazing, especially the dipping sauce that comes with them, and I loved the papaya salad too. They also focus on sustainability and try not to create food waste!More

We had a very early dinner here. The restaurant wasn’t crowded yet when we got there, unlike the other night when seats were full. Loved their french fries. The burgers were good too.

Nice burger, great fries, cold beer. Sit outside and watch people go by. Super comfortable. Nice double sofa thing with cushions. None of that 90 deg chair stuff. Loved it! And the outside area is elevated above the street a bit, which makes it nicer.

Just another perfect review for this awesome restaurant. The previous reviews don’t lie. Cannot fault them for anything - we ate there 2 nights running. Get there early if you don’t want to queue - but queue if you have to !

Spent 2 weeks in Laos/Thailand and this was the best meal we had - service, ambience, food - all perfect! We all shared a variety of courses/dishes. Delicious.

great place to people watch, as there are comfy seats facing out onto the sidewalk. we had one amazing dish (Lao meatballs) but the coconut lemongrass fish was quite bland. service was decent but it was confusing when we paid out bill half in kip...and half USD... my calculation was spot on but she said we were off by 20 cents (5 kip) and made an issue out of it instead of letting it go. (it was our last meal and we had zero more kip). that was lame. this place is full of Westerners who read TripAdvisor!More

The food is good, the service is quick, the wine is good. Not somewhere to linger over a meal but great to grab something to eat.
