I went to Lao Cafe 2 for my first time. My friend recommended me to go there. I went with my husband. We were treated very nice in the beginning. The decorations looks kind of low budget. The seats were worn-out. As we sat there and was looking at the menu the waitress came up to us. Her demeanor was very nonchalant. The waitress seems so impatient with our order. We only sat down for about 4 minutes. Not to mention the Menu was huge and had a lot of items. My husband and I order their Pad thai, Thai papaya salad (mild), sweet beef jerky w/ sesame seeds and steam rice for 2. The food came out in a decent time. When our first dish came out the waitress slam the Pad thai on our table and hurriedly ran to tend to her child. I thought that was very rude, but I'm a very understanding person. I understood why, but yet it was still rude especially with our first time being there. The rest of food came out a couple minutes after. The food was really good. Taste authentic and was very flavorful. I think the waitress came only twice to see how we were doing. She just ask us quickly and proceeded to sit down the incoming guest. With out the chance to ask her for a refill I just kept eating. I realize that the waitress was treating the other customers a lot better then they were treating us. They were very kind and openly cheerful to them. I told my husband that and he also realized it too. The second time the waitress came we just ask her for a to go box for our food. It took her so long just to bring the to go boxes. I don't know what she was doing in the kitchen, but it took very long. We tip them $3 for our meals. It was a pretty decent price compare to the other restaurants in Fresno. They didn't say any goodbye to us (ie Have a good night, thank you for coming) I now just order the food to go. Till this day their service stinks, but their is a magical sensations that keeps me coming back to their food.
Overall, I still go there, but I order to go instead. That is my opinion, but if they treated you like family then enjoy it there.
