We didn't eat here but we came here a few times for some beers and Friends which was on tv non-stop. They have comfy cushions to sit on and the beer is reasonably priced (12.000 kip for a large beerlao).

After falling sick in Vang Vieng, Otherside had the jacket potato of dreams. They've got easy food like pizza etc, as well as local dishes and shakes. Had a lovely dinner here and went back for breakfast too. Decent.
