Been meaning to try this Laotian restaurant for a long and I'm very glad that I finally did. My group sampled the quail, coconut rice, roasted pig head (daily special) to start, followed by the pork belly and chili prawn entrées. All were excellent and very well made. But my favorite and most memorable dish was probably the complimentary sticky rice. Eat it with your hand as instructed and dip it in the sauces - it's heavenly! The menu is pretty simple so it's nice to go with a group of 4-6 people to try most dishes. Service staff was very helpful to explain the different dishes. Looking forward to my next meal there :)

I can truly say that I have never had a dining experience like this before. The menu may appear simple, but the dishes we had were complex, well composed, and edgy. Where else are you encouraged to eat with your bare hands? Rather than the traditional bread and butter, they serve sticky rice with two dipping sauces: bang bang sauce and roasted tomato puree. The black bass is served off the bone and looks impressive with the head still attached. I enjoyed how all three of our dishes converted easily into lettuce wraps. I thoroughly enjoyed this unique cuisine (at least to NY) and experience.

Khe-yo may or may not be our only Laotian restaurant but what it definitely is is a winning restaurant experience regardless of ethnic heritage. Warm service, sultry ambiance and SE Asian flavors marry well together in this Tribeca instant hotspot. The Laap's are spicy and refreshing kick of acidity. I enjoyed the hearty and complexly flavored entrees like the chili prawn shrimp toast and whole fried bass. Most of the dishes contain shellfish as a base and offer no substitutions if you have any dining companions with allergies.

Came for their Friday night dinner service with a group of 5. I really enjoyed the experience and have already made another reservation to return again at the end of the month. Here are some quick notes: Good for: Laotian food; "hands-on" dining, literally; family style group dining Hits: terrific staff and outstnding service; simple and modern decor with bits of exotic touch; spacious seating; hot sauce that came with the complimentary "rice basket" (in lieu of the typical bread basket); pig face salad; crunchy rice ball with sausage; chili prawn; very reasonable price (6 dish came out to $35 per person after tax and tips) Misses: steak tartar with bone marrow could have been a fantastic dish, but the lemongrass was too prominent and overpowered the star ingredients here; nonexistent dessert menu. Tips: Pig face salad is only available on days when there's supply and is not listed on the menu (call ahead to confirm). Be sure to ask the waiter about it. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty and dig in on the ears and the snout. Eating with hands is fine and is encouraged. Food: 4/5 Service: 5/5 Decor: 4/5 Noise: moderate

When my friend said "Let's go eat Laotian food", I was expecting a hole in the wall...NOT the incredible experience we ended up having. Perhaps happiness does come from reality exceeding expectations. Either way this made me happy. Delicious food served in unexpected ways in a gorgeous (if loud) setting.

This quaint Tribeca restaurant inspired by Laos cuisine delivers unique Asian flavors specific to the region that it's drawing from. Instead of serving you bread and butter, they offer up complementary sticky rice with bam bam sauce (super spicy) and tomato tomatillo. Appetizers like bamboo grilled quail drenched in honey chili sauce and fried coconut sticky rice with Kaffir lime sausage are sure to delight your tastebuds. Though the menu may be intentionally sparse, there is a lot to chew on from fiery chilli prawns in red curry sauce to perfectly glazed lemongrass spare ribs balanced nicely with smashed long bean and heirloom tomato relish. The cocktails also offer up surprisingly delicious combinations with minimal yet refined flavors, like a mezcal drink with lychee juice and mint or cucumber thai chilli vodka with soda. Bottom line: Despite feeling a bit too Tribeca-ish in terms of decor, the unique Laos inspired food and creative cocktails will keep you coming back for more.
