My first time at this restaurant and I really enjoyed it. Great indoor or outdoor seating, good customer service and good selection of food at reasonable prices.

We landed in Vientiane in the evening and came by this restaurant on the way to our hotel. Great selection of a lot of different kinds of vegetarian courses and no waiting time after we ordered the meals. So well made dinner, but you wouldn't guess the high level of quality food if you looked at the psychical basic interior... More

I have been there with my friends for the dinner. It is just near to cultural Hall. They have variety of Indian food, vegetarian and non-vegetarian along with chapatis, tanduri roti. Food was good, presentation was good, space was clean, good place for gathering.

Ate here with some friends. Had the Rogan Josh and the Tikka Massala with Safron Rice and Garlic Cheese Naan. Other friends had different curries. It was all ok, but nothing special. The dishes weren't too spicy. Curies vary between 15 and 30 000 KIP

We stopped in here for dinner tonight. Lots of smiling staff, a good variety of curries being cooked by an indian chef. We ordered a chicken korma, chicken jalfrezzi, plain rice and butter naan. My partner loved his curry, after travelling for over 2 years he says its the closest curry to an English indian he has had. So he... More

Ate chicken legs and onion naan. It's tasty, cheap and fast. The staff were friendly, smiled and served fast. I think beer Lao may be perfectly matched with the food even thought the Indian tea I had ordered was good.

Ate here three times. The food is similar in taste regardless of which dish you order (each visit I had a chicken based dish). Naan is average. Service is average. Next time I'm in Vientiane I'd probably give it a miss. This probably isn't the most informative review you have read nor I written, but it kind of sums up... More

In a quiet location behind the Cultural Hall, this restaurant is not fancy, but it serves good, inexpensive Indian food. Service is prompt, friendly and meals are prepared quickly. It suits me!

We had the chicken tikka masala, rice and naan. The masala had good flavor. The naan was average. They servers seemed like they didn't want to be there. We paid 14k more here then at Namaste both meals were comparable.

This restaurant's chicken korma was our children's favourite meal in 4 weeks of travelling. Think that says it all! Great food, lots of veggie options, reasonably priced.
