The kindest service and finest hospitality in NYC. Amazing Laotian food and the real appeal is the delicate and nuanced flavors of each dish. I enjoyed it and am Laotian myself! Glad we made the pilgrimage from NC. What a gem, NYC!

We had a great meal at Khe-Yo. We had never had Laotian cuisine before and loved it. Not surprisingly, it is very similar to Vietnamese. Each dish that came out of the kitchen was excellent. a simple bowl of sticky rice to start was delicious. Lobster and noodels and a tiny perfect quail were also excellent. The service is a pleasure and the room is beautiful.

Very enjoyable dinner, especially if you enjoy south east asian flavors.

Our appetizer was tuna tartare with bone marrow and foie gras sopped up with sticky rice. Delicious Overkill but very reasonable at like $30.

Excellent! I can’t speak to the authenticity of the dishes or presentation, although I’ve read very good reviews from people who are much more familiar with Lao cuisine. But I can say all of the dishes were absolutely delicious, nuanced, beautifully presented and utterly enjoyable. Discuss with your waiter if you have issues with heat, and because it’s served “family style” if you want dishes brought out at different times, as courses rather than when each is ready, mention it to your server. But we’ll be back for sure.

Je suis Français d'origine Laotienne. J'étais curieux de déguster de la cuisine laotienne ici à New York. La cuisine et le goût sont fidèles à notre cuisine avec des touches modernes et des plats revisités très intéressant. Les techniques d'exécution montre une excellente maitrise et technique de la cuisine.
La cuisine est bien entendue épicée et piquant à souhait. Nous avons toutes les saveurs en bouche et cuit à la perfection.

Je dis Oui à la cuisine Laotienne à New York et je me suis senti au pays pendant un instant.

Bravo au Chef Soulayphet de promouvoir notre cuisine dans une ville magique comme New York.

Bravo à toute l'équipe et mention spéciale pour les cocktails qui y sont excellents.

Phet, you’re killing it. As someone who was missing her Lao friends and Cuisine for the last 1.5 years, it made my day to know that there is someone out there who is doing this Cuisine, and not only doing it, but in a more upscale manner.

Flavor is on point. Bang bang is perfect heat. I literally bought 100$ worth of food, just for myself. The portions are great.

I ate like a barbarian. I cannot wait to be back.

I am so so disappointed about my first dinning experience at Khe-Yo. Even though the food is good, that can’t make up for the worst service, arrogant and nonchalant attitude from the waiter. I will NOT EVER come back to Khe-Yo anymore!!!!

Food was delicious and service great. However the music was far too loud and also the style rather inappropriate for being at a restaurant and not a bar or club. It was almost impossible to have a conversation and I asked waitress to turn down the volume which she passed on but nothing changed. That was quite frustrating as I was meeting up with friends I hadn’t seen in a long time and we couldn’t understand each other.

This was my third visit and this restaurant once again turned out remarkable and unusual food at very high value for dollar. Even the foodie I dined with was impressed. The pork noodles with curry sauce got universal raves, the green papaya salad was, as we were warned, VERY spicy but that was fine given that it was shared among the four of us, and the tuna ceviche with, of all things, four gras and bone marrow was a hit. One miss: the whole fried black bass that didn't live up to the flavorfulnees of everything else on the table. First visit on a Saturday night, which has a higher noise level than the lunch and midweek dining we've done in the past.
