First time having Laos food. Amazing food and great venue.
If you love spice this is your new home. Khe-Yo has delighted the two friends we have brought here who spent lots of time in Laos. The food is authentic and the spice level is HIGH but everything is so delicious you won't mind (or will enjoy!!) -- the selection is entirely authentic (no nods to american palates here). I had the salmon market bowl which was mild (you can ask for bang-bang sauce if that's your style). My friend got a coconut milk and it was actually a young coconut and came with a spoon!! Got to love any kitchen where a machete is part of the tool kit. Atmosphere indoors is cool and dark with high ceilings. Currently distanced tables. Outside is a lovely wood patio with a few flowers, surrounded by tribeca's gorgeous brownstones. The street gets some crosstown traffic but is far from police or fire or ambulances. It's on a quiet street, and the service is good - but if you are in a rush make sure you tell them, the normal level (at least at lunch) is to allow patrons to linger and enjoy. Highly recommended if you like Asian food. (also - highly recommended that you learn to love Asian food!!!)
The food as usual was outstanding but the service is not ready for prime time, as honestly most of NYC restaurants are struggling with service. Inexperienced servers along with the lack of training, leadership, and proper staffing remains to be an issue across the city. Khe-yo is one of my favorite places but they need some work. Consistently dirty and unbiased tables, no water refills, no table touches, and no server rechecks equal disappointed customers who won’t come back after the pent up pandemic rush is over.
Manager was ride when we mentioned the octopus was inedible. Didn’t do anything about it
Super friendly staff and food is delicious!
What a gem! The outdoor seating area is lovely, the service was friendly and helpful, and the cocktails and food were delicious! I would highly recommend the Thai Chili Cucumber Vodka cocktail and the Tamarind Ginger Mimosa. As for food, you have to try the Crunchy Coconut Rice, Berkshire Pork Spring Rolls, and the Crispy Brussel Sprouts. Everything was fantastic!
Excellent food, good portions and very hospitable staff!
Food was excellent, lots of outdoor seating. Restaurant staff seemed a bit overwhelmed and service was quiet slow, but overall a great experience
Love the food. Service is always good and welcoming. We live in the neighborhood and have been coming for years.
The bad ambience score is because it was lunch, they have a glass roof outside, and it became unbearably hot. Otherwise, very good food and service.
Cute outdoor seating vestibule
Great food, location, and fantastic outside dining area. I would highly recommend Khe-Yo.
It was amazing. Never had Laotian food before so it was an awesome experience. We were early for our reservation but they seated us quickly. Service was wonderful and the food phenomenal. Highly recommend the pork spring rolls as a starter. The portions are very generous so we split the small plate and each ordered a large plate. It was more than enough food.
Great food and fantastic service! I would certainly recommend
Great food a d Sevoce
We were looking for something different for dinner over the weekend and stumbled upon Khe Yo on OpenTable. We've never tried Laotian food so we were very curious going in. Definitely a nice first time. It was quite different flavors from its neighbors...Vietnam and Thailand but defiitely nice flavor and texture to the cuisinge. A must visit!
Food was quite good, service was excellent. We had the Chilli Prawns, Beef Pho, Beef jerky, and Papaya Salad. Entrees were better than the appetizers but all in all was a great meal.
Loved the place, service, food, ambience, it was all wonderful and one of the best meals I've had in a long time.
Greasy crowd-pleasing food. Not very Laotian.
The service was great, food was fabulous, this has become my new go-to spot. I love their curbside set up with weather coverage and heaters. They have a modern wall-mounted thermometer. They take COVID safety SERIOUSLY.
Our table wasn’t prepared when we got to our reserved time. However, the manager gave us free drinks and a free dish. Even when the kitchen was closed, the manager went out of his way to let us order additional entrees. Would def come back here again. Not just the service was great, but the food was amazing.
Admittedly we were a largish group of 9 at Khe-Yo, but our experience of food and service was underwhelming especially for the price point. The crispy whole bass and the brussel sprouts were really good as were a couple of the drinks, the rest of the dishes we ordered were unmemorable.
Waiter ignored the table and had to be called few times, food was way overpriced for the quality. The noodle soup came Luke warm. Location is nice.
Absolutely fantastic food. Killer lunch. Even the Berkshire pork dishes felt light on their feet and vibrant. Everything was delicious. It's been awhile since I've been dining out but I need to make this one of my regular stops.
Fresh, flavorful and ambient. Brought our 12 and our 15 year old girls here for dinner and they loved it. We had the pho, pork belly wraps, sweet chili chicken and papaya salad (hot). Added to our favorites list.
Cool bar lounge restaurant, interesting food, definitely recommend
Chef Phet and his team were amazing as always. Nowhere else would I celebrate LNY in NYC than at KheYo!
We were sitting outdoors. Liked the appetizers but they failed to mention that the kitchen was closing and never got to order any main dishes!
One of my favorites, everything here is fantastic.
The food was good, but not fantastic. I think Laura does a better job in capturing the flavors of the region
Great outdoor patio, food is delicious and service is friendly and prompt. Perfect for groups
Everything was very good: food and service, and cocktails!
The food is always delicious and service is exceptional!
Food was amazing
The nicest staff! Super attentive! The Papaya salad is VERY spicy. Food was delicious! Such a great experience.
First time tasting Laotian food! I loved it
We loved everything and my gluten-free daughter was able to enjoy the chicken sausage appetizer and the salmon entree with no issues.
I’ve been eating here since it’s opening and I expected it to be lacking something due to the Covid outbreak but both me and my partner believe that it’s gotten way better. We felt so healthy after eating here and that is very unexpected because it is and east Asian restaurant with spices that can be intense. I felt like the flavors were unbelievable especially in the salmon curry. They were aromatic and had multi layers of flavor with each bite.
The wide rice noodles with shrimp dishWas also amazingly flavored. The shrimp were delicious and the grill flavoring gave it a smoky element that I did not expect. The vegetables that they offer Are beautifully seasons. The brussels sprouts were absolutely delicious with a medley off sweetly brined peppers. The baby bok choy was also really well flavored with tiny slivers of ginger. If I had to critique one thing I would say that any person ordering dishes should ask if the vegetables that they ordered for their appetizer are heavily featured in any of their entrées. The bok choy was heavily featured in my entrée and I got tired of it because I just had a large appetizer portion of the bok choy 🥬. But that would be my only critique and really the critique falls on the person who is ordering. The drinks are also amazing there is a daiquiri drink on the menu and I had two of them which is rare but the flavor in this drink was also multi dimensional.
A bit on the pricy side. The lemon shrimp and pork ribs go well with the rice. But if you are on diet on carbohydrates, they are a bit too salty to go alone.
Phenomenal as always
