Initially visited this place as it was in the Lonely Planet book. It’s on the main, dusty road and looks a little basic but enjoyed the food so much, I went back for dinner. The food was piping hot, well cooked and delicious. They serve...More

Surprisingly good hummus and nice warm pitta bread but, given the portion size, it's as expensive as I used to pay in London cafe which is mad for a town in Laos. Staff don't speak English so you need to point at what you want...More

Try their homemade humus, pita and falafel, it‘s delicious. Unfortunately we had some small plastic items in our humus, that’s why we only go up to 4 stars. But you really should go there if you like humus, pita and falafel. And they also serve...More
