Good indian food, good value

This little shop behind the national culture hall has a good mix of veggie and meat dishes, cheap, no frills, no nonsense, decent sized portions. Efficient

Wish they would say when lamb is on the bone, spent most of the meal picking pieces of bone out of my mouth. Curry was average and a little overpriced, 200,000 kip for 2

I really like the samosas that are served. The flat bread verity is good. Some times the dishes are greasy. I always eat Vegetarian here. My husband says the meat is often dry. I like it because it's not spicy. The staff is good.

I've been returning here for nearly 10 years now. There are other good Indian restaurants in town, but for consistency and value for money, the Taj wins it for me. It's not fancy, in fact it's as basic as you can get, but that lends itself to a relaxed eating experience. The prices are so cheap you can order way... More

A very popular restaurant with a lot of local patrons. Worth finding in the back street, which is not difficult.

We used to go to this restaurant everyday in the evenings to have tea and Pakoda. Even we used to have egg fried rice.. Not an excellent place though.. But a decent kind of place to be with friends..

Had the okra and potato, samosas and lassi, all for about $5. Everything was tasty, and the service was fast and efficient. One complaint: The salty lassi wasn't salty :-(

This place is definitely not the best Indian place you will find, but it is a pretty decent place. I was travelling across Laos and had strong craving for Indian foo. LP had recommended only Taj Mahal as an Indian option. As mentioned by other reviewers, this place is little tricky to find. The place looks ordinary and moderately clean.... More
