We had a very poor dinner at Lao Kitchen yesterday. Everything really everything was cold ..... soup ... even rice. Waiting and waiting for the food - we stayed hungry. Coffee did not appear in one hour.... we cannot recommend at all!

Just too difficult to look for Vegetarian food in Vientiane! This restaurant helped me eat something! They offered boiled vegetables with rice. Taste was good and I could fill my stomach! Thanks to the restaurant guys :-)

This place is decent for Lao food, especially if you're new to Laos The fish laab was really good and seemed to be the genuine article. Staff were friendly and attentive. Reasonable prices given for the quality/portion size ratio.

Excellent food. Accommodating and friendly staff. What you pay is what you get, meaning the foods they served are good and big serving.
