Stayed in Vang Vieng for a week. First entered the restaurant because it looks clean and classy. Not a bad choice and I ended up going back more than once. The owner is friendly and chatty and food is excellent for its price!

Good breakfasts, decent sized portions, and the soup and baguette are tasty and filling. Avoid the hot chocolate, because it's like river mud. Good (dry!) environment, very clean. Great!

Trip advisor rarely lets me down but it did on this place. We had green curry, Lao salad, honey roasted chicken, ice coffee and mango shake, the coffee was great the rest was completely forgettable.

We randomly found this place for lunch and ended up coming back two more times during our trip. The food is great, but as the other reviews have pointed out, the owner really makes the place special.

Ordered and then sat, and waited, and waited, and waited... my friends spaghetti carbonara arrived after about 45mins and she says it was delicious. I enjoyed sitting... More

The main attraction however, is the owner, Wayne. The first time we talked to him, we knew he would do his best to make the evening as enjoyable for us as possible. With endless... More
