This place was so daggy and beat-up. Not an Aussie to be seen. It was dark and delapidated . We spent time enough for one drink and a game of pool before exiting never to return.

The Kangaroo Sunset Bar is no longer in operation, so don't bother wandering around in the dark trying to find it as we did!

Nice western food if u need a change from Asian dishes. The meals had a nice flavour and the chef could obviously cook well. My only complaints are that the serving sizes are very small for western standards, and this place is HOT with NO air conditioning and only a couple of tiny fans! Also the wifi was apparently broken... More

Wonderful burger that was truly delicious. But my partner had a less than desirable macaroni and cheese.. If you go, get the burger!

I really liked this bar. Great happy hour, cheap drinks, pool table, really good music and two local staff who are really good fipun and love to challenge people at beer pong. I'd never played before but found myself challenging them every night for three nights - always losing but great fun. Some of the fat monkeys crowd would be... More

Came here after we were handed a flying tubing during the day. The bar staff were all really nice. Drinks were reasonably priced. The main thing that sealed the deal for me was the music. So sick of hearing 'Wrecking Ball' every 5 minutes in asia, it was nice to hear some Radiohead!

My friend and I went to the Kangaroo bar a few days ago after receiving their advertising pamphlets. Reading online reviews, we were expecting an awesome experience. We arrived, sat down, and waited about 10 minutes for a guy to come up to us and say "what do you want?" Well, some menus would be nice. We got the menus... More

Good burgers in LAos, the sweet onions give a great taste to the burgers. Good ambient too with a pool table and a nice bar

This place is alive! Many foreigners love this place as it has cheap alcohol, good food and great music. We spent a couple of hours there at least. Gradually the music got too loud to talk so we left. When the keg gets back up and running this place will be even better!

Popular bar, free BBQ (great skewers), free vest if you buy 2 cocktails (cool designs, and great way to meet people when they recognise you were in the same bar/place as them), manager is a really cool guy and also free pool table!.. Spent most of my nights in vang vien there!
