In October, 2012 I gave this place 4 stars and extravagantly praised the vegetable pakoras. Well, we went back today and what a disappointment. They've changed the name to Dacha, apparently thinking Bangladesh is a byword for fine food. I had the veg. Pagodas and they were downright poor: more dough than vegetables and not crispy at all. My companion... More

Disappointed with the service and the waiting time for the dishes. Do not come here if you are hungry, you will lost your appetite while waiting. Comparing the taste of food, do try out Fatimah and Nazim. Better taste and friendly service. The service and the manpower need to be improve, if need to wait please inform the customer, do... More

This is probably one of the best Indian's I've ever had. The Garlic chicken and Butter chicken was delicious. The naan was really good too. Great value, highly recommend if you want a good curry in Vientiane!

My partner and I have had Indian food in a lot of places throughout Southeast Asia and the two curries we tried here were very good. The chicken was delicious and the curries very tasty. The prices were about right. The staff were very friendly too. Overall, we would recomend this place, and we would return.

Small restaurant on a busy street. I liked the atmosphere! Food was OK but the quantity was lesser compared to other restaurants in the area. The rates were also a bit higher comparatively. Welcoming and friendly staff!

I ate here twice and can speak only to the mixed veg. pakoras, which I had on both occasion. These were among the best version of this dish I've ever had. Too many pakoras have too much batter and too little veg, but these were perfect -- light, delicious batter with a generous amount of veggies inside. Very pleasant staff,... More

I wanted a change from the local Lao food, and thought some Indian might be nice. I made the mistake of coming to this place. I ordered a potato and eggplant dish, a chicken dish, and a tandoori paratha. What I got was microwaved sludge. It had that furry, light texture that frozen food has when it's microwaved. The chicken... More
