After some tripadvisoring around, we found this restaurant and decided to try it. the reviews are nice, so why not. plus, we actually stay right across the road in Khampiane. 1) Spring Rolls : The best spring rolls i ate in ages. really, there really fat and juicy...

We loved the food here so much we came back both days in the city. They have a large menu and with friends we sampled most, all delicious. Be sure to try something served with their LK green sauce, its flavourful and amazing. A great Laos meal!

... but not as good as expected. Green Papaya salad destroyed by fish sauce, whole fish comes in 2 parts perfectly arranged, rear half Tilapia and front half tasty Mekong catfish. Bad service needs bosses intervention: There is GOOD white wine, Chardonnay, surprise. Low prices and good terrace seating.

I have been in Laos now for 6 weeks eating all over Vientiane and other places. Lao Kitchen be far is the WORST service of any place I have been! 45 minutes to get a very simple meal, resturant on 50% occupied. Getting the server to put ice in my drink was very difficult. The staff barely speaks "choppy" English.... More

We try to eat local whenever we are in a new country and Lao Kitchen was a nice place to get to try local dishes in a traveler friendly environment with English menus (complete with useful descriptions of each dish), English speaking staff and plenty of clean, well-lit tables. The menu shares a lot of information including the composition of... More

We ate here primarily to have Lao cuisine. The service was adequate and the meals delivered quickly at a reasonable price. Not the best Lao cuisine I have had in my time in the county.

We had the opportunity to cook with the people at Lao Kitchen - and they only use the best ingridients and have an extremely clean kitchen set up. The food follows original recipies and have many nice touches. However - if you are a sucker for chilli, spices and original Lao food - the locals have a point saying Lao... More

I had gone to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. It turned out to be good advice. The service was excellent despite the waitress not having a great deal of English. The food was delivered promptly and the staff followed up with enquiries as to the quality of the meal and my enjoyment of it. The ambience was... More
