Ate chicken legs and onion naan. It's tasty, cheap and fast. The staff were friendly, smiled and served fast. I think beer Lao may be perfectly matched with the food even thought the Indian tea I had ordered was good.

Ate here three times. The food is similar in taste regardless of which dish you order (each visit I had a chicken based dish). Naan is average. Service is average. Next time I'm in Vientiane I'd probably give it a miss. This probably isn't the...More

We had the chicken tikka masala, rice and naan. The masala had good flavor. The naan was average. They servers seemed like they didn't want to be there. We paid 14k more here then at Namaste both meals were comparable.

This restaurant's chicken korma was our children's favourite meal in 4 weeks of travelling. Think that says it all! Great food, lots of veggie options, reasonably priced.

Cheap, tasty (onion pakora was great and basically a bhaji), fast service, and no deli-belly the next day. What more can you ask for? Would recommend to anyone missing Indian food whilst travelling for a long time!

Don't be fooled by the rather simple look: the food is great and after a while it's quite romantic. Staff is very friendly and fast. Don't forget the big lassi, with mango, banana and pineapple!

For a little town like Vientiane, Indian restaurants are surprisingly abundant. Most are all right. Taj Mahal is awesome! Best Aalu Paratha in Laos...without a doubt. Can't wait to go back again..
