  • Definitely a worthy dinner spot when the sun has set and the air is cool, they play music and have many food choices!
  • Beautiful landmark, beautiful. However, does not really fit in with the rest of Vientiane :-)
  • Good place to enjoy outdoor food and music
  • Food court with options like Indian, Japanese, Lao, Korean cuisine.
  • Lovely corner of town
