“Excellent place for Lao food”
Reviewed 24 November 2010

I am Thai, and I think if this one is in Bangkok it would be very very popular. Clean and great food quality. Mok Pla, Larb, grilled chicken and their sitcky rice are all great.

“Superb Lao cuisine with a contemporary twist!”
Reviewed 28 September 2010

We have dined in many Lao restaurants previously. But one night our friend, Noi, took us to Amphone restaurant. We would have thought they served western cuisine if Noi didn’t tell us otherwise. There’s a courtyard outside and the setting inside the restaurant was akin to any French or western restaurant that you’d walk in to… dimly lit and with a bar.

Having been to many restaurants where staff spoke nothing but Lao, I was surprised when the staff here spoke to us in English. What a relief! The menu itself was clear so we practically knew what we were in for. The price wasn’t too expensive.

We were actually wondering if those dishes before our eyes were authentic Lao and Noi confirmed that they were indeed pure Lao but presented with a ‘twist’. Our favourites were the "Mook Pa" and "Citronella Fish".

We certainly think this place is a great introduction to Lao food and we highly recommend it.
