Service was great. We have been there four times and all the food was great. Pumpkin soup, rice, tofu, chicken and vegetables, rice vermicelli- it was all very delicious. Also the best fruit shake that we tried!

We went to Long Khiaw as part of our Honey Moon. This restaurante was amazing, we love the decoration, and the food! The best was the chicken lamb, and the fruit shakes. The staff was very kind

The food was okay, but not special. You get spicy by no spicy order. Wait a really long time for our food after order. And my drink arrived 2,5 hours after order and 5 times asking for it. They need more staff. They are not...More

Had read great reviews of the curries but we ate massaman veggie and it was the worst we've ever had - potato, onion and some peanuts in watery curry.
