    The only Laotian food in Manhattan, and it's great. Spare ribs, crispy coconut rice with lime sausage, bone marrow with steak tartare, and pork curry noodles. Equally good for a date or a group.

    The menu includes things like crunchy coconut rice with sausage, bamboo grilled quail, duck laap, spare ribs, grilled chicken, and pork belly with quail egg. A really fun restaurant for date night.

    Go family style! Coconut rice was absolutely amazing, loved the lobster noodles and don’t skip the Tuna Tartar which comes with a bone marrow and a fois gras:) Not cheap but also not too expensive.

    The Pork Belly with Spicy Bang Bang, and cha sew banh mi (same pork just in a bun), are delicious!!!! We came here for lunch, and the options are far limited compared to dinner menu.

    So good!! Free sticky rice w spicy bang bang and eggplant sauce. Beef jerky. Crunchy coconut rice. Papaya salad. Almost preferred the smalls to the large. Whole snapper is great but a bit messy.

    Excellent service and one of the few Laotian restaurants in NYC. Ribs are a must, the coconut rice pudding is super yummy, brussels sprout special is delicious- make sure you're into spicy.

    Bowls are really great, service is very nice and drinks are interesting! If you are hungry go for the sandwiches. Also, its very cheap for the quality you get. A must in Tribeca.

    The pig face is so good! Crispy skin and juicy meat plus the sweet and sour sauce! So yummy! This is the best restaurant I've been in NYC and will definitely come back for more! Lol

    “Among the best dishes are a whole grilled quail on a stick, tasting like charcoal and ginger, and a steak tartare that’s served, Flintstones style, atop a giant bone filled with roasted marrow.” Read more

    The brunch market bowls are incredible value. Get the crispy pork belly with the sticky rice option which comes with great sides as well (Spicy Bang-Bang sauce, Charred Eggplant & Roasted Mushrooms)

    Market plate-pick a protein and a base of rice, noodles or salad. Caramelized salmon on romaine hearts $16. Fresh coconut juice served in coconut $7.

    The brunch here has a lot of unique items and the food is delicious. Our waiter had a terrible attitude though which kind of put a damper on our experience.

    Everyone starts with the rice balls, a delicious and fun dish. We tried the coconut rice, papaya salad, quail, and pork curry noodles. Everything blew us away. One of my favorite meals!

    Sticky rice with the bang bang sauce is amazing! (Actually try the bang bang sauce with everything). Fun cocktails, great service, impressive food presentation. Bass was ok but pork belly delicious!

    Every single item of food was delicious. Careful with the spicy stuff though - it packs a mightiest of punches

    The chef Soulayphet Schwader opened Khe-Yo with the chef and restaurateur Marc Forgione with Laos food's careful balance of sweet and spicy, but with the sour, funky element turned up a notch.

    Awesome Lao food in NY. The bang bang sauce and eggplant sauce are great, as are the crispy lettuce wraps and the fish entree.

    Beer Lao and duck laap (with fried duck tongues) make for a great start to any meal. The whole grilled bass and crunchy coconut rice with kaffir lime sausage are also fantastic!

    The ribs are amazing and of course the sticky rice with bang bang sauce is a staple. Be careful of the bang bang sauce!

    Get the pork belly! The chili prawns and quail are lovely as well. Ask for extra bang bang sauce if you can handle your spice. The Bordeaux pairs nicely with most of the food.

    Get the papaya salad because this version is particularly fresh and bright, along with an order of crunchy coconut rice balls with kaffir lime-laced sausage, drizzled with honey sambal. Read more

    On the house but amazeballs: Coconut rice & Bang bang sauce. Spare ribs a win. So was crispy rice & quail. More accessible to Manhattan than pok-pok, nearly as good. Top ten!

    Definitely try the crispy rice (which you eat with your hands), the red snapper (with bang bang butter….) and the steak tartare served with bone marrow and mint. Read more

    Everything here is nom'able, however, my absolute favorite thing about this place is the bang bang sauce for the sticky rice. The glass noodle dish with bacon is pretty filling.

    Crunchy coconut rice and prawn dishes were great. Bang bang sauce has great flavor (but spicy). Nice wines by the glass (two Alsace whites good pairings for spicy dishes).

    Crunchy coconut rice as small plate and curry noodle as large plate will be the recommendation from me and my friend. Their snapper is also well made :P

    Dinner starts not with bread and butter, but rather a complimentary basket of sticky rice, which you should eat with your hands & dip in the accompanying chili-garlic sauce and smoked eggplant paste. Read more

    Legit spicy!!! Which is very refreshing for upscale places that claim to have authentic spicy Laotian food. Go for it and deal with the burn later

    Make sure to wash your hands before you sit down -- the waiter's instruction to eat with your hands sounds a little gimmicky, but it's definitely the way to go.
