Ordered three mushrooms entrée, great favor, however almost no mushrooms. Staff offered to split tofu and pork half/half when I was indecisive, which was very nice. My partner's curry was rich and warmed us up, filled with nuts as advertised. Good Asian and American beers on menu, fairly priced. Portions were decent, somewhat smaller than nearby restaurants. I will certainly... More

Each visit to Madison, this is the place I choose to go for dinner! They have a large variety of choices for dinner. The spring rolls taste fresh and are excellent. I enjoy the curry as well. Service is always very good and food is supurb!

If you have tried various asian cuisine especially spicy ones like Thai or Indo then you must try this Lao cuisine. The taste is unique and very good. Try the house specialities w steam rice or sticky rice. Their papaya salad is one of the best ever. Wine is quite ok. The only drawback is lack of staff with the... More

The restaurant is small and cozy, the service is excellent and the food delicious, served family style. I guess that's why it's always busy and crowded, so we had to wait about one hour for our food, but it totally worth it.

We went here for a Monday night dinner based on a recommendation. When we got there, a few other people were eating. By the time we finished at around 9:30, the place was packed. The waitress was very friendly, and the atmosphere nice. This is Laotian food, somewhat different from other Asian curries and spices. We had a Kang Gai... More

I was in town and with a colligue so we decided to avoid the dreaded chaines. It was a Monday so there was no wait. We were seated and the great service bagan at that point. Our waiter was knowelgable about the food and gave dead on suggestions. My meal had the perfect blend of hot and smooth. My coworker... More

Chose this restaurant based on proximity to our evening venue and reviews here. Reviewing the Atwood Ave. location in the review. Alas, our search for an excellent Asian restaurant in central/western Wisconsin continues, especially with the disappearance of the Golden Egg Roll in La Crosse. I really wanted to like this place. Asian is almost always my first choice when... More

We have a book called "Eating Well In Wisconsin" and have always found great restaurants from their recommendations. Lao Laan Xang is no exception. It is small with about 10 tables but it is HUGE on delicious food! We shared spring rolls, soup, cucumber salad and two entrees (24a and 29) I don't think you can go wrong here. We... More
