Dinner there last night and as usual, great food and service. Sat on the elevated balcony attached to main building. My partner, now vegetarian was able to order a combination of two salads turning out to be the perfect meal for her. I had the Fish Cakes, which unlike Thai fish cakes were very large and bulked up with mashed... More

Bel ristornate con tavoli molto grandi. Piatti della tradizione laotiana e prezzi leggermenti più alti della media, ma qualità elevata. Abbiamo provato l'anatra ed il curry di zucca, davvero squisiti. Anche i dolci tutti molto buoni. Consigliato!!! Nice restaurant with very large tables. Dishes of Laotian tradition where the prices are slghtly higher than the average but with high quality... More

Sits on the river Cam Khan, an enviable spot for river watching, that is a delightful lunch stop, and improves immeasurably as the light fades and the lanterns and candles appear. The food echoes the position. Lunch of fishcakes and yellow curry. Yum yum. Dinner (best to reserve a table) of stir fried vegetables, carrot and coconut soup, river weed... More

Went to The Apsara restaurant last night. Never a let down with modern menu and some Lao classics. Situated within a C1960,s boutique hotel on the banks of the Nam Kahn river within the UNESCO Historic Peninsula. Internal and terrace seating. Possible the large Chinese writing, very evident from the street when you walk past puts some potential customers off.... More

We stopped by for dinner as it was recommended by a Friend and he was right. The food was great and service exceptional. We had the warm mushroom salad and green salad both were delicious. We also had the deep fried dish in tamarind sauce and it was sublime. The fish was so big that it was more than adequate... More

I had dinner at this restaurant last night and it was absolutely delicious with top rate service. I had the beautiful fried Mekong river weed with a lychee and lime cocktail followed by twice cooked duck (substantial portion) and a gorgeous green papaya salad with fresh mint, herbs, lime, peanuts, yellow cherry tomato and fresh beans - it was all...

Started with Laos miang pla. Great flavours. Then had deep fried (large) mud fish - excellent, eggplant salad - equally good, creative use of local produce and papaya salad with greens - excellent too. Good flavours, well presented. Thoroughly recommended. Pleasant ambiance.

The Hotel Manager Christopher made several recommendations for our lunch. These turned out to be excellent selections. We were going to get the Lao set menu. But his choices were great.

We stayed 3 nights and loved everything about the hotel. Location is perfect - just off the Main Street, service attentive but not overwhelming, ambience, food, elegant decor. Serious cocktails - ask for the special negroni... Brilliant coffee Lao to accompany the a la carte breakfast accompanied by fresh baguettes with homemade banana jam. We stayed Ina downstairs room which... More
