This is probably an ok bar, but it's not a great place for eating food. First of all I specifically ordered a dish with mashed potatoes, and even asked to make sure it would be served with mashed potatoes. When the food arrived I still got french fries. But at this time we had been waiting for nearly 45 minutes... More

If you are from Quebec and in need for a piece of home, have their poutine it will get your fix :) Good staff very friendly, but there is no sunset to be seen there.. The name of the place can confuse you a bit :)

We went here every night just chilling, playing pool and beerpong. Staff here were awesome and super friendly. Really good food. Definitely the place to hangout before you go out and I liked a lot more then the crowded Sakura bar.

We visited for beers and ended up getting tempted by the menu. Decent pub grub on offer including Australian, British, European, Thai and Laotian dishes. We choose the 'macaroni with beef and tomato' along with the 'Laos green curry'. The latter was extremely tasty but the former was very average. Our friends chose the 'spaghetti bolognese' and the 'beef burger'.... More

While I agree it's more of a back packer place, it's easy to get there when there are no backpackers, and the burger is really great.

Hi Joe, whilst we do cater to backpackers as it is a very large percentage of travelers that come to Vang Vieng as a whole, we greet everyone with the same politeness, courtesy and respect. I particularly enjoy meeting people of all ages from all over the world - it is a major reason why I love coming to work.... More

Ok for late night beers but a bit of a tacky place for wannabe cool backpackers. Wouldn't really recommend.

As aussies we came here with a great positive attitude. The food came out cold and most orders were confused within our group. Western food is usually filling. We finished our meals still starving the portions were small. Sad to see people trying to make money off the Australian name and also letting it down.

Stumbled across this bar when looking for somewhere to eat, upon arrival into Vang Vieng.. Rhino welcomed us with open arms and before long, we realised we had found our 'go to' establishment in Vang Vieng. Cold beer. Good music. Great western food and top notch service. The lads there really go above and beyond to make you feel at... More
