Pros: steamed whole fish, inexpensive pitchers of beer lao, nice setting inside and out Cons: steel spiral staircase to upper level tough for elderly. Laab had rather peculiar spices - too much mint Overall nice place to relax and dine

Khop Chai Deu is a friendly way to say "Thank You", a name easy to remember. It is the place where the people meets and eats! The oldest and best located restaurant in the heart of Vientiane, and you get a taste of Lao foods or try our international dishes and make yourself at home. Come in to relax, enjoy the live music, and drink to new friendship. Khop Chai Deu has always been "The Place Where The World Meets".
