PVO is rightly ranked very highly. It has been a very popular lao/vietnamese-style lunch stop in Vientiane for many years, because of good and quick service, inexpensive eats, and a variety of tasty meals. There are many tables for small groups. It is less than...More

Stopped here for lunch. Amazing tuna baguette. Lovely crispy fresh bread. Worth the hype! My husband had fresh spring rolls which was very good too. Good passionfruit shakes.
