Went for dinner last night after a recommendation and were not disappointed. Very clean and airy restaurant with very efficient staff. The Lao beef stew, Laab duck and fresh spring rolls were excellent as were the fish cakes and all at a very reasonable price....More

Lao kitchen provides a nice dinner with lots of local dishes in a spotlessly clean location in the center of Vientiane Mostly touristy patrons can enjoy typical Lao food which is much milder then the e sahn style from across the river

Expensive considering the food was just ok. And they didnt accept credit card. Also a bit slow. But place was clean. And portion of the veg was quite big. If you were Asian you would think its just average.

Had a great meal here. Very friendly staff who spoke good English. Veggi stir fry was delic! Husband had the local laab and it was good to try. May not be a personal favorite but you could tell it was cooked well. Prices cheap
