After a long busride, stopped in Bombie's and ordered the fried chicken with basil and rice. Had good flavor and we were served a good sized portion. All the lights were off so we had to stick our head in the door to see if they were serving dinner.

I've eaten there a few times. Really just average (at best). Food is "marginal" (at best), service was poor during ALL my visits. It is in a great location and has good outside seating. I recommend "Cranky T Cafe" right across the street. Also, Bombie's is overpriced for what you get. Cranky T Cafe more expensive (as I remember), but,... More

We stumbled on this place as it was next door to the Hillside Residence where we were staying. When we entered, we were greeted by the owner and his friends, singing karoake. They were very friendly and welcoming, and immediately quieted down just for our sakes. The decor was fascinating -- because the walls were lined with casings and various... More

This is a must go to for when you are in Phonsaven. The guy that runs the place is a very knowledgable man on the local history of the place. He has a copy of a must see movie that he will play on a big tv while you enjoy your drinks or meal. Ask any number of questions and... More

Out for a stroll in Ponsavan, we saw a tiny sign outside of Bombie restaurant saying they show a wardocumentary every night at 7pm - The most secret place on earth. We hadn't heard much about the war in Laos and wanted to have a look. We don't regret watching the 75min film and paying for it. We had a... More

We ate here three times, starting with a fantastic Lao salad (take away) which had lettuce, tuna, spring onions, egg, chilli, coriander, peanuts and a few other ingredients which made it an interesting, healthy and delicious lunch. We pre-ordered because we had read reviews that the service might be slow. We had dinner there twice: the freshly made spring rolls... More

We ordered a pizza and paid for it, before attending a film viewing across the road at the MAG. That is a good idea to pre-order as service is pretty slow. We had a Meatlovers, and it sufficed, given we had not eaten anything 'Webster' for two weeks. We were the only customers, and didn't hang around as it is... More

Another Haven from the dreaded ' Cat Food ' ! Great local steak and chips. Good breakfast too. The secret movie is not to be missed, Also offering " Happy Pizzas . Smoothies , cookies etc." So if you think Phonsavan isn't strange enough , you can quickly make it very strange indeed !
