Very nice owner that cooks really good food. You can have local food or international (burger, pasta). We tried the local food which was very good!

We visited here twice during our short stay in Nong Khiaw. The local Lao food is really incredible! We didn't try the Western food because... well why would you? We tried the green curry with chicken, the Lao sausage, an out-of-this-world dish called "kai phat med mak muang" (chicken-veggies-cashew stirfry), and the chicken pad thai that comes in an egg...

Came here a few times for breakfast while in Nong Khiaw. We tasted the grandmas breakfast and the pancake which we're both well priced, filling, and tasty. The Lao coffee was also yummy! Inside is a little dark, but besides that it's a good bet.

This place has really good reviews, but I wasn't overly impressed. I went there specifically to find some decent coffee and was satisfied (there are very limited options in Nong Khiaw). I got the Laos coffee which comes with milk and of course sweetened condensed milk. It was on the side, and I could add to taste so that was... More

Very nice staff and friendly, good for a drink, but be prepared to wait upto an hour if empty and longer if busy for food, so dont go in hungry, give it plenty of time and get some beers in. Only had Loa food which is made fresh which explains the wait.

Very casual,fabulous food. We had heard it was good local food and we went for lunch. It was down a side street, in a very quiet location.

What you expect and hope to find in a little village like nong kieuw. A tiny restaurant with the owner making all the food and takes al the orders. The food is okay, i liked the laos dishes much better then i liked the breakfast. Just have to lay down and relax and not be in a hurry because waiting... More

We were a group of 8 that ate there dinner. Most people were very disappointed from their food. The vegetables lasagna was really bad. They also had a few mistakes in the bill and added a few dishes we didn't order.. it took a while to correct them.. Not recommended.

Waiting at least 1h. The shake is pure condense milk, never had a disgusting shake like this... The cakes are frozen and the cheesecake tastes like lemon and peanut, not like cheesecake at all. We came here because of good rating in TripAdvisor, but maybe "mama alex" is dead?

I had the lasagna and I didn't like it at all. It was very watery and barely had any cheese in it. Although, to be fair, if you go to an Asian restaurant it's probably best not to get Italian food.. the side salad was quite good (Really nice dressing). I also tried the cheese cake which wasn't great either..
