I was in Huay Xai for a few days and ate breakfast and several dinners here. All the portions of food were generous and I found every meal to be tasty. One night I had a cheese burger and it was nice and large, my...More

Not many voices in town but this place definitely has the right mix of local and western foods. It is right next door to the backpackers hostel and across the road from the gibbon experience so super easy to find.

It took us over 1 hour to get our food. The service is really awfull here. After the food we ordered another beer wich never came. This place has potential but the service is not acceptable not either in the lao way.

The mushroom and ginger is really good, and generally we liked every veggie good we had here. Decent portions too, and good Wi-Fi.

Great place for sitting down and chatting with a group of friends or relaxing by yourself. Food was good (especially the chicken burger if you're after a western meal) and definitely try the local Honey Whiskey!

We decided to visit Bar How for coffee and I ended up ordering Larp(sardine) which was very substantial and delicious. Good lively atmosphere and a great selection of traditional Laos food and Western. The Whiskey option must be seen to be believed. We went back...More

Nice range of infused whiskies, which were pretty tasty. Food was pretty average though and there was no sticky rice (in Laos! Weird thing to run out of...!), and the rice they did have tasted kind of old and dry. Pretty 'meh' food, but nice...More
