We liked it soooo much we came back for a second time. Food will take a while so be prepared for a wait. Lovely fresh food prepared in an open outdoor kitchen. Staff are lovely and so friendly. Highly recommend

Cozy restaurant with a nice ambience and open kitchen. Lao and Thai meals, but a little different, with a great vegetarian alternative. Lovely interior with some nice details. Take away is possible.
