This open air dining hall serves up traditional Lao and Isaan food (think som tam, laap and grilled meats) in a rustic atmosphere.
If Thais were cowboys, there would be a hitching post out front. Vientiane Kitchen serves spicy food, no doubt, but they are more than happy to tone down the heat if you ask.
The staff is friendly and eager to help and the menu is in English, so if all else fails, pointing should get you what you want.
Live music shows start at 21:00 with music and jokes in English, Thai and Lao.
Honestly, this can be a distraction so decide if you want to be entertained while eating. Dishes from 90 - 390 baht.
