    Lao and Chinese (Yunnanese) food. Basic English menu. Lovely staff.

    If there is a crowd already inside, maybe try one of the other four or five places as there are only two cooking rings. All the ingredients are fresh.

    Basic, clean toilets: regularly washed out.

    Very friendly staff.

    Favorite Dish: Noodles with beef. Or was it pork?
    The soup was somehow superheated so it took 30 minutes to cool down enough to eat.
