Sandrine is making perfect pizza with a great crust - we ate here several times and were always satified. Our favourite is the cheese pizza. If you are craving western food or cheese, that is the place to go!

We stayed in Thakhek for one week and couldn't resist going back and back to Patalaï ! The pizzas are simply delicious: fresh home made tomato sauce, fantastic pizza dough... The best ever !!! We also tasted the home made digestif made with ginger... soooo...good ! All this topped with a great welcome from Sandrine and her staff. The MUST go to restaurant that also has a great bar ! Khob chaï for evrything Sandrine ! We hope to come back one day !More

Both my friend and myself got massive food poisoning at this place- we both ordered pizza and started feeling sick about 45 minutes after we had left the restaurant. We spent the night over the toilet. We had ordered different kinds of pizza so I...assume it must have been the mozzarella cheese. Terrible experience!More

Nice thin crust with fresh ingredients, and full of flavor! Chuck full of cheese and vegetables, and not greasy.

After 6 months traveling in Asia, it was so nice eating a perfect pizza, Sandrine is very generous and makes you feel at home straight away. I highly recommend her restaurant. Thank you

Good pizza (thin crust) and pasta. I had the feeling (taste) that the pasta tomato sauce was not freshly made (but two days old or badly cooled).. No olive oil, that's a pitty. The owner and cook (French I think) was not as welcoming as...in a local restaurant. Pricy for Laos but ok for Italian food. They had Belgian beer, La Chouffe for 55.000kip a bottle. You get free, chilled drinking water. Good music and nice interior too.More

We got there quit late but they still served us a pizza. The pizza was really good, we recommend it. The waiter was friendly, they offer cold fresh water and we were offered a free shot (which we didn't take because we weren't feeling that...great).More

For me this has to be the best pizza in Lao PDR. Excellent thin crust, mozzarella and fresh vegetables - a delight. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is chilled with plenty of space and ambiance to relax. Sandrine - well she is special. ask...for her ginger shooter. And have to say the music vibe is special - go there if you are in Thakhek.More

The pizza was up to an Italian standard, was really good. Also had a spaghetti carbonara which was delicious. Will recommend if you need a pasta fix after days of riding the thakhek loop.

We visited this place after the Thakhek loop. There was a large group before us and the friendly waiter told us it would take some while. We appreciated his honesty. After this our pizzas came. They were good. But the best part ofnour evening was...having a chat with Sandrine and another French globetrotter. We had a very good time and and it was obe of those moments were time flew by. Thanks again and greetings from the Belgian couple!More

Really nice thin crust pizza. I asked for tomato ketchup up, which they didn’t have. But the pizza was so nice it didn’t need extra sauce. Great option if you fancy a some western food.
