Called into here, keeping in mind that Phonsevanh is a bit off the beaten trail so was surprised to be served a meal like this. My partner was extremely satisfied with her Lao dish. All in all, a great meal, and if ever come back...to this region in Laos, I'll be heading here.More

From the write up of the restaurant I was expection a much wider range of food (even for a vegetarian) but there was only one dish that I could order, stir fried vegetables (cabbage) and noodles. Disappointing.

After a long busride, stopped in Bombie's and ordered the fried chicken with basil and rice. Had good flavor and we were served a good sized portion. All the lights were off so we had to stick our head in the door to see if...they were serving dinner.More

I've eaten there a few times. Really just average (at best). Food is "marginal" (at best), service was poor during ALL my visits. It is in a great location and has good outside seating. I recommend "Cranky T Cafe" right across the street. Also, Bombie's...is overpriced for what you get. Cranky T Cafe more expensive (as I remember), but, at least you'll get great service, a friendly owner, great food and a choice of dozens and dozens of cocktails.More

We stumbled on this place as it was next door to the Hillside Residence where we were staying. When we entered, we were greeted by the owner and his friends, singing karoake. They were very friendly and welcoming, and immediately quieted down just for our...sakes. The decor was fascinating -- because the walls were lined with casings and various UXO bombs/ordnance. These were recovered by the owner and his father, who had been directly involved with the NGOs clearing the countryside of this hazard. Speaking with him was very informative about the challenges faced because of the bombing campaign in Laos. He showed us a fascinating documentary on the secret war on Laos. He was planning the next day to go with the NGOs to clear some more ordnance. The food was good and plentiful. Fruit shakes were good too. We would definitely recommend coming to this restaurant not just for the food, but for the overall experience.More

The restaurant is also the office for Sousath Travel. It is owned by Tourguide Mr. Rasa and his wife. The local food here is fantastic and delicious and cooked by his wife. You can get perfect informations about any tours in this area. From secret...Jar Sites Spots to remote interesting warsite locations. They know everything! Make sure that your Guide is Mr. Rasa because his knowledge about the whole area is outstanding! The tours are more expensive than in other Travel Agent but they offer you remarkable trips to less visited areas!More

This is a must go to for when you are in Phonsaven. The guy that runs the place is a very knowledgable man on the local history of the place. He has a copy of a must see movie that he will play on a...big tv while you enjoy your drinks or meal. Ask any number of questions and he will fill you in. The food is good. The beer is cold. It's a great place. Please note though: The location has changed. He is no longer on the main road but if you ask around, you will get the easy directions. He is probably 500 meters from the old location. Check this place out and you will not be disappointed.More

Out for a stroll in Ponsavan, we saw a tiny sign outside of Bombie restaurant saying they show a wardocumentary every night at 7pm - The most secret place on earth. We hadn't heard much about the war in Laos and wanted to have a...look. We don't regret watching the 75min film and paying for it. We had a good shake, but an overpriced pancake. You need to see the movie when you visit Phonsavan!More

We ate here three times, starting with a fantastic Lao salad (take away) which had lettuce, tuna, spring onions, egg, chilli, coriander, peanuts and a few other ingredients which made it an interesting, healthy and delicious lunch. We pre-ordered because we had read reviews that...the service might be slow. We had dinner there twice: the freshly made spring rolls were superb (yes they took a while to arrive, but there's not much else to do in Phonsavanh anyway). The laap was fantastic too. A friendly and obliging lady runs the restaurant and her husband operates a travel business from there as well. They show a movie 'The Most Secret Place on Earth' which is not to be missed. If you get there early and/or place a pre-order, you can't go wrong. The decor is full of character. This was one of my favourite places in Phonsavanh.More

We ordered a pizza and paid for it, before attending a film viewing across the road at the MAG. That is a good idea to pre-order as service is pretty slow. We had a Meatlovers, and it sufficed, given we had not eaten anything 'Webster'...for two weeks. We were the only customers, and didn't hang around as it is not enclosed and the nights get cold in Phonosavan.More
