I have been here a few times now and they never disappoint! I tend to order Chicken Pad Thai and it can't get better than this.

Vientiane is not a gourmet restaurant. It's not really even a restaurant. It's a market and take out place with a few tables. But near Brighton Medical Center/NE Rehab and needing something to eat, I was delighted to find that their chicken satays (which are often dry and tasteless) were the juiciest I've ever had (served with a mild peanut...

we live 6 doors down from this restaurant. it looks like an Asian grocery store, but their bread and butter happens to be their kitchen offerings. it does not scream " take out" or "restaurant". you can eat at one of their tables if you want to, however most of the dishes are taken out. the family that runs the...

I have been coming here for 10 years, it is amazing for both the vegetarian or meat lover. Great sauces and prepared foods. The market is great for Asian items you can't find at the local grocer. Haven't purchased their vegies or meat at the market.

This is really good Thai food. I stopped here to get take-out. Good vegetarian choices, the ingredients are fresh and the meals are very flavorful. The price is quite reasonable. I look forward to trying more dishes. The spring rolls are very fresh and tasty, the curry selections are good. I called ahead for my take-out order, and it was... More

We've gotten take-out here for years, even as the ownerships/management has evolved. We heard there are new owners again. We recently ordered red curry, pad thai, satay chicken, panang nuah, and it was all delicious. The prices are reasonable and our orders are freshly cooked by wok right there as we watched them finishing them when we picked up our... More

Really good neighborhood take out Thai...nothing fancy but consistently nice. Very good value at $7-$10 per entree. The Tom yum soup is excellent and the fresh spring rolls are recommended. Laab gai ground chicken and yum nua spicy beef salad are nice. Many dishes are similar vegetables in different sauces with choice of add - meat or shrimp or tofu.... More

Great place for Thai take-away though in the recent past their spice scale has not been reliable....I have received a dish that was supposed to be one star that could have easily passed off as a three star and on other occasions, the two star has been bland as bland can be!

We were passing through Portland and were happy to find something fast and fresh. The vegtables were garden fresh and the flavour was excellent!
