On a still, warm night it is really nice to dine as the glass doors are usually kept open giving the restaurant an alfresco feel and you can look out to the water. The Cafe De Laos is... More

After reading numerous pretty good reviews we went here without a booking after a long drive from Auckland today.

The chefs specials are very good, service friendly and prompt, one dish "Black Night " Laotian beef with black pepper was wonderful. Prices are very reasonable. Great Thai and Laotian food.

Excellent dinner out and fabulous food!! We had a large table of diners and all ordered wonderful meals and some had BYO wine, some ordering off the wine list. Food was so tasty and def some of the best Thai in the Bay. Good service too.

This is our favourite restaurant in Napier. We have eaten at many Thai and Asian places in NZ and you won't beat this little gem. Service and food second to none.
