We went twice to get our fix for exquisite Lao food. An absolute favourite was the laab with duck and sticky rice, the fresh spring rolls and the Laotian Herbs to wrap in betel leaves as a fresh entree. Avoid the room upstairs if you want a quiet dinner -unless you critically need aircon as the room gets very noisy... More

Loved the food. The pork larb was spicy and delicious. Dessert of banana with coconut milk was a disappointment but thats due to personal taste.

Great tasting Lao food...a little more on the expensive side but it is good quality and hygienically prepared.

We have just visited this restaurant for dinner after reading the reviews on trips advisor. We order red curry with rice, duck laap and tom yum soup. It is really amazing. I have the best curry dish ever. I will stay here for another day and I think I will back for this one more time. The price is a... More

Delicious fresh tasty food. Good choices for vegetarians. The Tom Yum Tofu was the best I've tasted. Morning glory also good. We will go back.

We eat here twice during our stay in Vientiane. I am vegan so it was difficult finding somewhere to eat and I really wanted to try a traditional Lao dish. Here I had the tofu Laab which was tourist style- so less chillie and no fish. A lot of their dishes can be made with less chillie and no fermented... More

This restaurant is not much to look at. But the food is reasonably priced, they will bring ice for drinks, and most importantly, the food is very good. A wide range of Lao food, but us "tourists" can select the spice level on most dishes. We had fried egg rolls--very tasty, glass noodles with Tofu, vegetable soup with pork, red... More

Upon arriving in Vientiane, this is where we first immediately went for lunch. The serving size is enough and the taste of the food we ordered was really good. The ice in their shake though melts so fast. Maybe because of the heat.

One of the restaurants open during the water festival...nice little place, but a little pricey for simple Lao cuisine. We had the Pakse sausage, fried morning glory, massaman curry and spring rolls. All food was good, especially the sausage. Service was adequate...sit upstairs in the A/C. I'm an American expat living in Thailand with my Lao wife.
