I wouldn't have planned to eat here having read the reviews but it was close to our hotel and we were very tired after our night flight. The service was excellent. Friendly although not all spoke great English but hey we don't speak any Laos. I was concerned that the menu had so many different nationality dishes but we had... More

We dropped by for a pizza. The restaurant looks very nice and so did the pictures on the menu. Really disappointing service and poor quality pizza not made from fresh dough. We asked for some extra topping but that was refused. Staff seemed uninterested.

We went to this place a couple of times to have a couple of beers. The setting is really nice for that - different terraces, plants and you would find a table that is in the shade. We went to have dinner there once. The food was ok, but nothing to write home about; e.g., the meat was overcooked.

Khop Chai Deu has a reputation in Vientiane among both Laos and expats, and it is often full of tourists visiting too. It has a variety of foods on the menu, though it is weighted towards Lao cuisine. It also serves a variety of drinks, and has a cocktail bar, so it serves some of its own signature cocktails as...

Good location and good food and good atmosphere. Nice outdoor seating compared to other restaurants we walked past. We were downstairs in the outdoors but there is an upstairs too which is a bit more lively with music. I've been there on a past visit and well worth going back my next visit.

This is a really nice place for a drink on one of the main roads of Vientiane. Don't bother with the food, it's tasteless.

On our visit there was only a couple of other tables with people so not surprisingly the service was very good and the food was delivered quickly. We arrived around 11am and ordered the Lao Snack, Papaya Salad and the Lao Beef. The Lao snack consisted of deep fried spring rolls with a sweet chilli dipping sauce, Lao sausage, sour... More
