Located close to the Fountain park and all other nice restaurants, this place is well worth a visit. Seems a bit trendy if you're into that. I'm not, but the place was nice and the food great.

Dear AboKor10110, Thank you for your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your meal at Lao Kitchen. Please note that while Lao and Thai food share many similarities – indeed, some of our curry and stir-fried dishes could be considered pan-Asian – we aim to focus our menu on Lao food. Dishes such as “aw laam”, bamboo short curry,... More

Super cheap, and can get crowded - but the food here is great and the staff are friendly. The Laap, sausage and riverweed are all fantastic. Upstairs is airconditioned, but doesn't have the same atmosphere as downstairs near the street.

The stir fried vegetables are superb. The seating outside gives a more relaxed ambience though the inside is cosy enough. No wifi though

This is possibly THE best place to sample Lao Cuisine at its best. Almost always full for lunch. Good location and most humane prices.

Only found this place on my last day :(. Had the fish laab, pork red curry and mixed veg. Really tasty! You must visit here when in Vientaine. Only about 6 -8 tables and fairly small premises.

Lao Kitchen serves great Lao food, suitable for foreigners, but keeping it tasty. Perfect for those who are interested in Lao cuisine, but not used to it yet. Prices are very fair.

Got the last table available in the place. Wait staff acted as though we were inconveniencing them with our patronage. Cold rolls were good, crying tiger salad and laab was yum. Overpriced for what it was. Average overall experience.
