Small asian restaurant in the city center (close to Radmansgatan subway). Single dish for 100 SEK. Taste is very good. When we went there, it was rice, Sechuan vermicelli and wok veg. Good and health lunch. Havent been there for dinner yet.

Great food, good service, really nice atmosphere. Expensive but worth it (550SEK). Totally organic vegan and vegetarian food. (Apricot amé was like goodness in a bottle). The lady who served us was called Joanne.

We have visited lao wai several times this year with my colleagues, and pretty much worked through the whole menu. The variety of flavour and the distinct nature of each dish is really surprising. This is not your regular chinese 'slosh'. I agree with some of the reviewers that some dishes can be a too salty.. maybe this is a... More

Lao Wai is the what I define "a different experience" in food. The key point is the food: organic and fresh, it's cooked by sight, creating that intimate atmosphere you can only have in small and confident places. Food is tasty and rich of different flavours. Even if you're a meat-lover or a convinced vegetarian, your taste will be satisfied... More

I had long been tempted by the high rating of this restaurant but my visit was quite disappointing though. The portion is quite decent but very heavy sauce was used to make the veggie more tasteful. Just wonder how organic it is after adding all those spices and salt and oil?

we tried two different main courses and both the dishes were oily and very salty. Food is overpriced. We like the simple decor of the place and the good service.

I can't understand why this place got such good reviews. We took two main courses and both were very oily and salty. I liked the simple decor of the place.

great mix of flavours and a menu with lots of options but not so many that you get lost. Would recommend the smoked tofu dish.

What a flavorful meal! Went there with my wife and we both loved the fact that it was not bland at all it was actually full flavored. Only down side is that the restaurant itself is very very sterile looking. Flat white walls, bad lighting and too many tables in such a small place. MAKE A RESERVATION!! We saw quite... More
