This restaurant serves delicious food, the setting is nice and staff are super friendly. Cherry on the cake: it's ran by an NGO and trains marginalized young Laotians to learn cooking and hospitality skills. Great food and great cause: give it a go!

First off, the food was very good. Secondly, this place is a teaching school for underprivileged kids to learn how to be cooks or waitstaff. It's a fantastic program that deserves our support. And like i said, the food was good too!!
