A new branch of Benoni's has opened in the Triple Three Condo Building on Samsenthai Road. The menu is the same as at the original site. The decor is somewhat more austere but neat and clean. Service is excellent. There is a lane between the cafe and "Vansom Delicatessen" which leads to some off street parking, which is welcome as... More

Good location with lots of other restaurants and cafes around. They have european and asian dishes. Had one of the fried noodles with chicken portions. Delicious and good size.

Nice cafe but service could be better... I ate local Laos food which was very good. I also recommend ice latte which was excellent! Menu and its variety was very good but the prices a bit more than average in capital...

Minus some things being currently sold out on the menu and limited English of the staff it was very good! Clean bathrooms too which to me is a sign of a great restaurant! Had the roasted eggplant and feta baguette and it was 35,000 kip, and it was delicious! Very friendly owner! Highly recommend!

The food itself was lovely and couldn't really complain however the service is diabolical! Had to ask multiple times for a bottle of water instead of warm table water and asked 5 times for a coke as the waiter did not understand what we wanted - nor did he try, it was ignorant. This was after we had to seat... More

Great place for a tasty breakfast. They have an expansive menu featuring both western and Laos dishes. The portions were very generous as well and the price was reasonable. We ordered the Pho Moo (Pork) breakfast and it was really good. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. We had a little difficulty asking questions as the service staff did not... More

After checking out the menu on the street I decided to come in and try the Lime Sorbet. I waited 10 minutes for a waiter to show up and I put in my order. He just shrugged his shoulders and walked off. He returned a bit later to report that they didn't have it, but that they had the Mango,... More

We went here a few times twice for breakfast and once for lunch. It was good food for an alright price...a bit on the pricey side if you compare it to street food. Haven't tried the coffee but can recommend the iced oolong tea with honey and the breakfast of fruit, yoghurt and muesli.

Thank chiaragloria
