    We had a great lunch at Khe-Yo! The market bowls were delicious and filling. We enjoyed the martinis made for us and the service was quick and friendly. I definitely recommend this place as a great place to enjoy authentic ethnic food. The spices were just right and oh so tasty!!

    The food taste was really good and the service was excellent. The only complaint I have and the reason for not giving the 5 stars was the portion size to price value of Teo of the dishes we had. First was the quail that on the menu pictured it looked like 2 quails for $22 and we only got one which for two people and for $22 felt like we barely had a small bite. Then there was the papaya salad, where flavor was really good but half of the plate was a big chunk of cabbage, not shredded but just one piece with the core which was hard to eat, so if half my plate was 50 cents worth of cabbage then $16 seem steeped. Please give me my full bowl of papaya salad, green papaya is not that expensive and you still can make a good profit at $16.

    It was fine, just fine. Menu changed a bit, more limited for vegetarians from last time I was there. Large plates are pricey for what they are. Food is average, price is pricey for average food. It's a fun spot with good ambiance, just wish the food was better. Just feels over sauced and salts to hide the average ingredients. Much better when you are drinking alcohol and enjoying the vibe rather going for the food. It's a better later night spot than a dinner spot.

    We tried Khe-Yo as one of our "new to us" places during Restaurant Week. While the experience was OK, it was nothing special. Don't think I'll be making the trip downtown just to dine there.

    We sat outside, which was fine. It was quiet. The food was great, but the service was not great. Our waitress didn’t understand us and then went completely missing for the last half of our meal. No one else came to check on us after we got our food. We finished and waited for someone to bring us the check. After 15 mins I got up and went inside to let them know we wanted to pay. I let the hostess know and without saying anything she led me to the bar where a member of the staff printed us the bill and walked away without any sort of apology or concession. We were there on a Monday night. Maybe it’s different on a weekend, but I won’t be going back to find out.

    Went for the fish, so was sad to learn that it's a seasonal item. And the papaya salad was incredibly, super spicy. Spring Rolls were delicious, ribs and spicy chicken were very much enjoyed. Our server was attentive and sweet, thank you! And thank you for quickly accommodating our babies.

    Great food- really delicious and flavorful. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed sitting outside. You don't get a lot of food for the price and the ingredients didn't seem that unique or exotic so not the best value for your money.

    This is a Laotian restaurant but the menu isn't very Laotian and there isn't a lot of variety. The food was decent but one of the main courses we got (pork curry noodles) was just bad. The noodle had no strength and broke all the time, the soup was too salty and the curry flavor was not potent and overpowered by lemon. I wouldn't pay $34 dollars for this less than supermarket grade stuff. Youtube/IG: Fufski

    Sorry to say a bit unbalanced - food/spices - noise level - service. People workibg the establishment seemed un interested. At this price level much more is expected. Might be good looking around in NYC to compare (Red Rooster, Indochine etc)

    Great ambiance, flavorful food! The pork curry noodles and pad-see-ew were delicious, and the teenager loved the sweet chili chicken. I was not a fan of the papaya salad (it is much fishier than the Thai version). Had the best coconut ice cream I've ever eaten! Portions are huge, go hungry! We also loved the hip ambiance and had some great cocktails at the bar.

    Business lunch at Khe-Yo sitting outside was a delight. We shared 3 starters between the two of us. Almost a bit much, but we’re all delicious. You need to try the coconut rice balls and the spring rolls. For mains we ordered spicy shrimp which was great and the lemon chicken which I will probably not order again. Nothing wrong with it, it just wasn’t as tasty as the other food. Should think about adding some more dry white wine options like a Sancerre or a Meursault to the list.
