We struggled to find much in the way of customer service in this town, but Bar How provided just enough rise to the top of a relatively short pile. The drinks list is massive, with a good selection of locally made flavoured Lao whiskeys. Their...More

Not many voices in town but this place definitely has the right mix of local and western foods. It is right next door to the backpackers hostel and across the road from the gibbon experience so super easy to find.

It took us over 1 hour to get our food. The service is really awfull here. After the food we ordered another beer wich never came. This place has potential but the service is not acceptable not either in the lao way.
