Really nice unexpected meal

Spicy Chinese food at its best, and you don't miss the meat! Restaurant is small so you would probably want to book if you can (though we walked off the street). Not cheap but fairly good value for money.

If you are in Stockholm, this restaurant is a must visit, irrespective of the fact that u are veg or non veg. The food is delicious and heavenly. It's a small cozy restaurant situated in a residential area and its difficult to locate. The price is little bit on the higher side but come on you are in Stockholm :).

This is a must for every vegetarian. A small restaurant in a quiet street with friendly service and amazing food. Totally vegan. We tried two different main course and they were both delicious and very rich in flavors. It was packed when we got there and we had to wait. Make sure you book ahead.

I simply LOVE this place and their food. We went and the place was fully booked, so we asked for take away. In just 15 minutes our food was ready - and it tasted absolutely amazing! I have never had a better Chinese meal before! Please do not miss out on this very special and fantastic vegan food experience!

This restaurant has been an absolute family favorite for last 5-6 years. My wife and I love the flavorfull, hot curries that are served here. The concept is they make everything vegan. There is soya chicken and soya prawns and soya meat and what not. And let me tell ya the taste beats even the real one. Once you have... More

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
