“Excellent Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Liked: Authentic Indian food though not necessarily cooked by Indian Chefs, cost effective and offered variety of choices such as chole bhature, nan/tandoori roti, butter chicken and chicken biryani. Beer Lao to accompany the food was simply great! Staff are friendly and helpful. You could even pay in USD instead of Kips, and you could rest assured of a reasonable exchange rate.

Disliked: Cleanliness and ambiance was average, service was a little slow.

“Top class value and decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

I ate here after reading all the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Just so everyone knows where to find it coming from Rue Setthathilath if you walk up Rue Nokeokoummane towards the national cultural hall and take the first right just before the hall it is just 15 yards down that street on your right hand side.

I had the chicken jalfrezi with pilao rice and garlic naan. The food was tasty without being remarkable. The naan was very good. The service was prompt and friendly. They offered to make the dish as spicy or mild as I wanted. I was only waiting a few minutes for my food. The bill came to 45,000 kips which also included a large beer lao so the value was tremendous. I would recommend trying this restaurant.
