She ordered Spaghetti à la Crème and me a Salad with Cheese and Croutons... Well her Spaghetti were with coconut milk... that kills the taste.. My salad has no cheese (they tell me... More

Heard about this place a while back and stopped on a whim. I didn't have high expectations. I tried their steak with gravy and veggies and mash. Came two small strips of beef steak. If you are hungry this meal (50,000 kip) won't fill you up. However, the beef was tender and with the gravy was delicious. The mash potatoes... More

I went to the BCF along Khouvieng road. Its a shack just off the road. Its ok but if its hot weather, all they have there is one fan. Staff are ok but I never seen them smile. Menu is very simple but most of the food is finished or they don't have. Once the meal come, it is nice... More

Plain menu of the usual offerings. Nothing especially interesting or tasty. Adding a few coffee and breakfast items could make a big difference.

Three of us enjoyed steak and chips, as well as a hamburger. In all cases the beef was great, and cooked as we ordered. There are a few funny items on the menu, and we noted that the souffle, was nothing like a souffle, but were oven roasted potato wedges. Still good! The fries were fresh cut, and delicious. Excellent... More

I have been to both of the BCF premises and I really enjoy their food, especially the beef fillet with red wine sauce and mash. However on my last two visits after finishing my meal the plates are never taken away after we had finished our meal. On our latest visit I even moved the finished plates to another table... More

BCF has moved from its Thadeau Rd/Fa Ngum Rd traffic lights location to a better new one at the far end of Khouvieng Rd near where it joins Thadeau Rd. Close to the Chansone Apartments. Still the same great value steaks and best fresh cut chips/fries in town.

After travelling in Asia for quite a while, I fancied a steak and some non-rice based carbs. I found this place on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go. From what I could understand, the quality was better than the more fancy joints in town - and that's what matters to me. It was a fair trek from my... More

To simplify getting there for people staying near the river: follow the riverfront road (Quai Fa Ngum) East until it turns inland. Shortly after you turn inland you will go through a set of traffic lights. Just after the lights on right hand side is this small basic local restaurant. As of December 2011 price still 30,000 kip for great... More
