Best Vietnamese food in Vientiane

What we say: 4.5 stars

PVO sandwiches has little in the way of ambience or presentation, but this makes it all the more authentic as a prime Vietnamese eating establishment.

Famous for its Vietnamese sandwiches -- fresh crunchy baguettes topped plenty of veg, chilli sauce and a variety of meats - it's also the best place in town for a Vietnamese noodle salad. At around 15,000 kip for a good-sized dish, it's excellent value. Try the passionfruit juice or some of their other fresh fruit juices, shakes and ice coffees.

At a separate location, just down the road, is the PVO noodle shop, a great spot for a bowl of delicious pho. PVO also has several motorbikes and bicycles for rent in good condition. Their restaurant is located close to the central bus station, and is a great place to pop in for a refreshing bite to eat before or after a long trip. The shops are tucked away, but big signs make them easy find.
