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

the crunchy chicken dish was fantastic. I forgot the exact name, but it's what we always order at this place.

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

We asked a long haired fellow, on State Street, if he knew of a good Asian restaurant. He told us to go up Willy Street and look for Lao Laan. What a find! I ordered tea and they brought me a light brown creamy looking drink that was delicious. We started with spring rolls, they were really good. I've forgotten... More

My boyfriend and I frequent both locations (other on Atwood Ave.) whenever I'm home in the area. Our food is always delicious and we usually have enough to save for leftovers (double meal value!). We also always make sure to get the tofu spring rolls... I've never had a better one than the ones they make here. SO GOOD! Though... More

We had a blast sharing plates, appetizers, and friendship. We had the spring rolls w/the chinese sausage - the BEST I have ever had. The long song soup was wonderful. My favorite food was the Larp (going back for more of that for sure)! We also had the Lao Combo (not my fav but still good), the mock duck, the... More
