The restaurant looks like a shanty made of ply wood and cardboard, nonetheless the quality of the food is, without doubt, Jamil's redeeming feature! There' s only a certain number of dishes on the menu, yet everything is fresh, reasonably priced and with generous size portions. Although a teeny tiny bit too bland for our palates, in general the food is a very nice alternative to Lao cuisine.
We found the staff friendly and extremely attentive, with definitely adds to the atmosphere of this place (another thing would be a hilarious performance by a French drag queen who sat at a neighbouring table. Not sure if this is a regular show at Jamil's or a one-off that we were just lucky to come across. I'm not making this up).

One thing to beware of, in particular if you're a bit camera shy, is the owner constantly snapping pictures and recording videos of all customers eating at the restaurant. We didn't mind, but one may not like that.

If you find yourself in Vientiane this place is a must. We were craving for some indian food and decided to look into this place. The meal was excellent, the hosts Jamil and his wife were very friendly; strike up a conversation with Jamil and you will end up on their Facebook and Youtube pages. The garlic naan was straight of their clay oven and delicious. We were very full after a big lunch and it cost a total of $10 USD.

Just recently been to the restaurant twice and it was a huge fun. "What all men say is always right" . The food his much cheaper and taste is great. I loved butter Naan and Kebab and there was something unusual as Mango Lassi but it was delicious. Would certainly revisit that place in two months..
