After a recommendation from a friend, we visited Lao kitchen not really knowing what to expect. We were delighted with our choices including the grilled Mekong fish. The flavours were authentic and complimentary,and the ingredients in each dish were all so fresh.

The restaurant is set on a quiet street and the staff were very friendly and laid back. All in all,this was our best dining experience in Vientiane.

Although this place is also frequented by many tourists, they have managed to maintain the authenticity of the dishes by not compromising on its level of spiciness or types of herbs used. For those who can't take spicy food, there are plenty of other mild stir fry dishes to choose from.

We tried all the dishes recommended by our hotel and were particularly blown away salad dish with loads of lemon grass and the pork sausage. The dips were also worth trying and goes well with rice.

Be prepared to wait though as service can be slow when the place is packed. Reservation is necessary.

I have been to Lao Kitchen after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and it proved to be excellent. Food is very good and the menu offers a big variety of food for not crazy prices. The presentation of the desserts was a little too basic. The place is new and nicely designed. All in all I recommend this restaurant.
