We ordered hummus, chicken kebab and tomato soup. The falafel and hummus worse we ever tried in our lives. People who are writing reviews that is amazing perhaps never tried real middle eastern hummus and falafel. I live in London and I eat this type of food at least one a week - this was just horrible. Kebab - pita... More

I had the urge to have some falafel but wasn't expecting too much from this place. Was empty when I went in - customers and staff. But after a little while staff turned up.

We had a falafel and a chicken shish kebab in a pita with French fries. There are not a lot of fries in the set. I recommend just getting the pita. It's pretty good, comes with hummus and a lot of veggies. If you're looking for a healthy alternative and fresh taste, definitely choose this!

Falafel and hummus are an absolute must taste when visiting Vang Vieng. Great homemade food for low kip!

Pretty good falafel sandwiches with an awesome garlic sauce that adds so much flavor to it. Perfect quick dinner and good value for money.

Really nice organic mulberry juice. Delicious oats & fresh fruit. I have been struggling to find healthy options for breakfast unless fried so this makes a rally nice change.

I had the hummus and falafel combo. It tasted quite good but it was a small enough portion and there's no salad with it. It's a family run place and they're very friendly. I would recommend for sure but I'll try something different next time. Very quiet and away from the party bars.

What's to like? Friendly staff, efficient service, clean tables, good prices and excellent food. We went back several times after checking out other restaurants, Mama Sababa always came up as our first pick.
