Simple and fresh.

Tucked away behind the main strip this gem of Indian food is a great find. Everything is made to order from fresh ingredients. The quality in every dish really shows. The samosas are great and their saffron rice is quite special. I'll be back for sure!

This food is so yum we went back several times. So many vegetarian options. Very cheap and so tasty. Get the Mixed Veggie Korma.

I've visited Taj Mahal before a long time ago and went back here yesterday. The place still looks the same (not very interesting) and the food is still decent. I had a good meal, a very fair portion with a nice taste and some good naan with it. The Pakora was also very nice (and a good portion as well).... More

Ordered for paneer butter masala ( got paneer korma), baingan bharta ( grilled mashed aubergine with other delicious veggies and spices),fish curry, kashmiri pulao,lassi pineapple flavoured and banana flavoured. Every dish had its flaws however, baingan bharta and drinks were really really gooooood. It's a hit and miss scenario with dishes. Definitely not a... More

A simple Indian restaurant located in a very simple corner but with great food at an affordable price! The service is great! Will definitely recommend this.

My boyfriend and I were determined to find a tasty Indian restaurant when we first arrived in Vientiane and after searching for what seems like an eternity we found this place and now we have been about 4 times since! It's only small but the prices are cheap and the food is wonderful. The dishes we have had so far... More

Of the few Halal food in Vientiane, this is probably the humblest - both price and premise-wise. The food is value for money, and the wifi is great. I ate here twice, and have no complains for this place.

Simple location, good prices, food was average Indian. 4 instead of 3 b/c of the value. Tucked away just off a side street.

The place is very functional but serving the best Indian food in Vientiane. We keep going back for their butter chicken ... it's sooo good. The menu has all the well-known Indian favourites, the service is real quick an effective. No aircon and other fancy stuff but always a good experience to eat there.

Its not a fine dining place. A typical Desi restaurant - serving you fresh Indian food. At time, made to order. The owner has been in Laos for long and can give you lot of insights.
