Been here 3 times and was amazing every time. Red curry is the best we've had in Laos! Intimate and quiet location and atmosphere.

Amazing succulent fresh fillets of catfish crumbed perfectly in beer batter. Kea has had a lot of experience with food, hospitality, and tourism in Laos. His wife cooked out fish n chips which came with some quality mayonnaise and a beer!!

The reviews are correct, this restaurant is small but serves great fish and chips, also has good service. Highly recommend and one of the few restaurants on the island that we wanted to go back too.
