“Expensive”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Had a get together with some old Lao friends. 7 of us in the party and the bill came to US$120. The food was normal Lao food with sticky rice, nothing special. We also drank 5 bottles of Beer Lao in total which is a very cheap beer. Won't be going back again.

“A tasty lunch”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

Based on comments from other reviewers four of us had lunch at Nangkhambang. The Laos sausage was lovely, the grilled fish was excellent with a vegetable dish that was quite acceptable. We ordered pickled lettuce which was too salty for me. This meal was washed down with beerlao which was reasonably priced.
The consensus of our party was that the restaurant was well worth a visit and we left he restaurant feeling very satisfied and happy with the standard of the food we ate for lunch

““AVOID THIS TOURIST TRAP “”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Don’t get caught in one of the tourist trap restaurants such as Nangkhambang Lao which seems dedicated scamming to inexperienced farangs by offering banal, tasteless food at high prices. Just beside the Salana is an open air BBQ area where several restaurants compete, offering delicious BBQ fish ,pork ,chicken, squid, beef ,etc as well as Som Tam ,Tam Taeng ,etc .I don’t know the name of the one where we ate ( if it has a name!) but it’s the biggest one and the one nearest to the Salana hotel.
For a fraction of the tourist trap price we had an excellent meal – as well as several jugs of marvelous , tasty ,cold draft Beer Lao.

“Authentic Lao food”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

A short review - if you want authentic Lao food, good atmosphere and good service give Nang Kham Bang a try - two of us did and had an excellent evening. Photos show - crispy frog-skin and pork aw lahm.
Pretty central, clean etc of course.
