This is a great fun experience and good food too, if it is your kind of thing. It is on the banks of the Mekong, opens at 1700 and is huge, but does attract huge crowds in the high season (we were there for Pii Mai - Buddhist New Year - and it was crazy, which was part of the... More

You can either bbq a variety of meat(pork,chicken,buffalo,fish, shrimp... And veggies) on a hot plate or dip them in a boiling soup at your own sitting place. The price is reasonable (about 6 usd). The food is plentiful and fresh. Some prepared dishes are also available (french fries, fried chicken, vietnamese nem, spring rolls...). It's worth a try if you... More

I went there a couple of times with my family. The place was packed with locals, Chinese and westerners. The food was plentiful, varied and being able to BBQ iy yourself made it easy to get that extra crispy bit.

This restaurant is very popular with locals and tourists alike and fabulous for people watching. Despite its name, the place allows guests to cook their own dinner in Mongolian hotpot style rather than as a western style barbeque. The staff provide excellent service and very helpful advice on how to go about the cooking. The range of fish, meat and... More

The Riverside Barbecue Restaurant, along the Mekong, is a fun spot to try cooking your own meal, Lao style. It's good value, good fun and there's a lovely river view. Go early to get a good table (book if you can) as it's popular and fills fast. For 60,000 kip adults 30,000 kip children, you can select from a huge... More

Well, first of all for 60,000 Kip bbq buffet, it is consider the best of the deal in town. However, what I saw has really turned me off in this restaurant. I have seen the staff clearing the table, however the staff has poured back the unfinished meats from the customer leftover, seriously this is very unhygienic. This incident has... More

We sat here because we couldn't sit on any other restaurant. All the westerners had overwhelmed the restaurants with bookings and we sat on this restaurant. The bring you the meat and you cook it on the barbecue. Nice experience, sitting with the locals.
