Been to this restaurant on visits to Vientiane. Consistently very good local cuisine. But their lemongrass chicken starter is so good it gets ordered every time. Similarly their spring rolls are excellently done beautifully crisp and dry outer with the ne'er moist filling.

Located in the center of the city. Authentic food. Special river sesame "seaweed", nice lemongrass shrimp paste grill and steam fish. But took long for the food to be served even though the restaurant was partially occupied on weekday..

Tucked away, but still very central, this is a little gem. The food is excellent and a good introduction to Lao food for the slightly less adventurous. The dishes are tasty, nicely presented and the atmosphere is nice and quiet.

This is the best Lao food I had in Vientiane It was very quiet that evening with very few customers but the atmosphere in the courtyard was nice. The laap, curries and mok paa (fish cooked in leaf) were delicious, with subtle flavours. The selection...More
