After a long day out on the river kayaking we were in need of food! The chicken tika and veg dishes we ordered were great. I did not love the butter chicken. The lime shake was perfect and refreshing. Overall, satisfying food and friendly service.

Lao owned and run by Nisa and her expat husband Sel. We served a wide variety of cuisine including some of the best indian and western food on the island. Browse through our music database or cue some songs on your own device. We like to serve up good times with plenty of cold Beerlao, domestic and international spirits. Riverside view just 10 meters from the beach landing of Don Det. We speak fluent English and can guide you with any query. If music is catching your ears on Don Det, there's a good chance it's the 4000 Island Bar. We want you to enjoy your stay in Southern Laos.
