Ban Lao Restaurant and Beer Garden
Great open-air setting
What we say:
The food at Ban Lao Restaurant and Beer Garden is nothing to write home about, but we love the open-air setting in a lush little garden complete with fairy lights and a pond.
The menu features the usual tourist fare pizzas, breakfast sets, burgers and fried rice, but their selection of traditional Lao dishes like larb with sticky rice are good and probably the most satisfying option. As the name suggests, they definitely serve BeerLao and you're welcome to just come here and drink.
One disadvantage of the natural setting is that mosquitoes enjoy it as well. The restaurant will offer to burn a coil for you, but bring some repellent just in case. Despite the lovely setting, Ban Lao doesn't seem too popular: think of it as Khop Chai Deu without the crowds.
