The Kong View is tucked away from the main road sitting on the edge of the Mekong. It is an ideal place to go to see the sunset over the river while grabbing some beer. Dinner is good, but not necessarily outstanding.

Great food, nice view and ambiance. Entertained by the musician while you having your meal by the side of Mekong river. Try the Mekong fish, tasty and crunchy.

I love going to Kong View! The food is great! The strawberry smoothies are the best in the city. The view is great. Generally these is not any parking issues. The wait staff seems to always be pretty quick. I could give the Kong View 5 stars, but I do have one issue that continues to anger me every time,... More

Sitting along the mekong river, listening the gentle lao/thai romantic songs, you feel totally you were lao. However, the food for me are not so delight, too heavy for me, lots of salt, chilli, aginomoto. Hope... More

Good things are, the restaurant is just beside the Mekong river, atmosphere is very nice, live music is great. Bad things are, services - staff are too less, way to restaurant is quite difficult but location is very near to airport. There are many good restaurants beside Kong river around the night market which lower price.

This restaurant located near the airport must surely be a compulsory dinnertime stop on the tourist itinerary. The food was delicious, service exemplary and the views in this alfresco eatery are absolutely enchanting. For those who fancy live music while you dine, there is a band on the premises belting out popular numbers in English and Thai.The thai dishes were... More
