Based on reviews, we chose here and had walked by earlier seeing the menu. We should have been concerned when we were the only diners and every other restaurant is full. We each had the beef filet, one of the pricier dishes. The beef was...More

After a couple of days eating traditional Lao food at some wonderful places, we decided to try this highly recommended restaurant. It certainly lived up to its reputation. The food was beautiful, and we were able to eat right on the river.
