Located in a quiet street in central Vientiane, this restaurant offers nice Lao cuisine at affordable prices. Try the 'khai Phen' (seaweed)!
The staff are very friendly and attentive, even telling you that certain dishes take a bit longer to prepare.

Nice location, off the busy roads but still good people watching. Service was very good, especially given they had a very large group they were also serving at the same time.
Had duck laap (delicious balance of spices, lime and mint) and rice, and of course Beer Lao. Prices weren't too high, but definitely pay for the service, cleanliness, and ambiance. That said, I will go back; their menu was great.

I lived in Vientiane for a year, and Lao Kitchen was one of my all time favourite restaurants. Lovely reliable food, nice staff, a clean environment and some nice options for vegetarians (the mushroom laab is a winner!).

Fresh food, great value for money and a clean, professional restaurant. Service can be slow when they are full and I have found the beef a bit chew. Vegetables are fresh though.
