It was easy to find the place. It looked rather westernized, and the menu had a lot of western dishes as well. I figured that a lot of those posting reviews on Trip Advisor regarding Vang Vieng are westerners, so it makes sense that such a place would get a high rating. I liked the look of the place, and they had a nice outdoor area, which was perfect for people-watching.
We ordered Pad Thai with Squid and Fried Rice with Mixed Seafood.
Both were satisfactory, although nothing particularly memorable. I liked the rice better than I did the Pad Thai.
Not bad for our first meal in Vang Vieng. I'm certainly looking forward to trying more of the restaurants that line the main road.
