The Lao Kitchen is centrally located and easy to find in Vientiane. The local food was good, the service excellent and the prices are right. The Lao Kitchen serves both Laos and western dishes so there is something for everyone.

I had heard about this place from other travellers so was keen to check it out.Must say that inspite of being simple they do a pretty good job of a typical Lao meal.Do try the Fresh Spring Rolls.
