Main street, Houay Xai, Laos

Serves meat, vegan options available. Menu includes a range of vegetarian and vegan dishes listed explicitly. Some of the non-veg stuff may be requested without meat/fish/eggs. Not to be confuse with the other restaurant, RiverView, which does not cater to or care for alternative diets. Open Mon-Sun 6:00am-9:30pm.

Nice, but very slooow - Edit

They have a decent range of veggie options here (and good wifi!) and the food is actually pretty tasty. The view over the Mekong is great and they are happy for you to hang out there for aaaaages. This is just as well, since if you've ordered food that's exactly what you'll be doing....However, it was really nice and if you're in a hurry here then you're probably in the wrong place. Very tasty morning glory. Vegans beware: I think the tofu they serve here is egg tofu.

Pros: Great views, Nice range of veggie options, Tasty veg

Cons: Tofu is egg tofu, Service is slllllooooooowwwwwwwww, Dishes come at very different times to one another

Quite good food, great view! - Edit

There are plenty of veggie options, many inherently vegan.
Some things looked a bit ambiguous, but the staff had enough grasp of English to help clarify what contained any animal, and what didn't.

The quality of the food itself (mainly curries and soups) was better than that offered at some other more generic restaurants along the main road.
Don't confuse this place with River VIEW which was awful.
This is the place with a huuuge outdoor seating area overlooking the river.

Pros: Good cheap food, Nice view, Free wifi

Cons: Generic selection

samden 08 May 2013 - I was looking for this place. Seams the marker is way off. Do you have any directions for me? Does this place have the huuuge outdoor seating or the bad one?

rjmehra 08 May 2013 - Hi

It's the one with the large outdoor space over looking the river. The markers are really hard to place in areas without post codes etc...

Hope you find it!

So it is 1-2 km south of the border crossing in the city center?
