Fasai Restaurant

Reviewed By Sheila S - Kelowna, Canada

Shakes, Western breakfast and all the Laos favourites!

Fasai is a great spot to chill out, take in the Mekong view and listen to the longboats rumble past all while you enjoy a meal. I had a basic Western breakfast which was exactly what I was looking for. The people that own the place are super nice and want to leave the best impression possible. Their smoothies are very tasty as well. Prices are fairly inexpensive on Don Khone and Fasai is no exception. They can also accommodate tours groups. It is located on the main road to the left of the main dock.

Superb Indian food!

Surprisingly there are quite a few Indian restaurants in Laos -- and the food here is the best of the lot! Especially when you realise that it is basically one guy doing everything. One evening we were unable to eat there because he'd literally run out of food; but the next night we ordered in advance - I think this also helped him to organise his time (there can be a bit of a wait if others are there before you).We ate there twice, and variously had chicken tikka, dal fry, channa masala, baigan bharta (aubergine)., bread and pulau rice. All was fresh, very tasty, and just the right level of spiciness.The guy is very friendly - and works so hard! Sometimes he has a helper, but not always.

Not like pictures

Don’t order the grilled chicken as per pictures from previous reviews. It’s nothing like it.Instead I got fried chicken, over cooked chips (not potato) and a salad absolutely covered in mayo (not vegetables).I had to order a mixed vegetable which was nice but was too oily.Just a shame the first meal didn’t come as expected from the images on here!

10 Things to Do in Vientiane That You Shouldn't Miss

Vientiane is the capital and largest city in Laos. Located on the banks of the Mekong River, Vientiane is a city steeped in legend and history. The city is the home of the massive gilded stupa, Pha That Luang, a national symbol of Laos. The streets are lined with trees, French colonial buildings, street markets, Buddhist temples, and noodle shops. Just outside the city is Buddha Park, a garden littered with over 200 cement sculptures depicting the gods and monsters of Buddhist and Hindu myth.

What to do and see in Luang Prabang, Luang Prabang Province: The Best Places and Tips

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the former capital of Laos, and you'll see everything from golden-roofed temples to vestiges of colonial French architecture here. Buddhist monasteries abound in Luang Prabang, and early every morning, monks process through the streets collecting alms (their food for the day). If you want to watch or participate, though, ask your hotel for a brief etiquette lesson first—you have to distribute the food in a specific manner.
