The papaya salad was not up to par as it usually is. The Pa Dek (fermented fish sauce) was off and too salty. We’ve had it here many times and it was much better. Different chef maybe? We also asked the server to make it “EXTRA EXTRA LAOTIAN SPICY” and it wasn’t. We also had to ask for extra lime to make it taste a little better. Overall, everything was still great! Just still a bit bitter about the papaya salad, but I’ll get over it. :)

Wonderful evening—food superb, ginger mock tail refreshing, excellent service. Prepare for very high noise level. Shrimp, pork belly, tuna with foi gras disappeared rapidly. We will return!

I’m a foodie. I was born in Thailand. I love Lao/Thai food. I order it in every city and country I visit. This was NOT good. If you know your papaya salad, you know the difference between Lao and Thai papaya salad. The papaya salad was NOT Lao flavor. It’s was not even good Thai. The food was bland, did not hit the home cooking cravings, and the menu was very limited. If you are a true Lao/Thai food lover, you will be disappointed. If you don’t care, then you will probably enjoy it.

Our second visit but disappointing this time. Indifferent service, bottled water not cold, dishes with old, dried-up lettuce, over cooked fish, and so on. Not offering the best in Laotian cuisine.

The fried whole fish was well worth its price. Fresh and perfectly done. The other dishes - coconut rice balls, papaya salad - were less noteworthy (my wife comments that the papaya salad was over-slathered with fish sauce). We ate at the bar, and the bar tender was busy but attentive, helpful and a little cranky (which I personally enjoyed).

The food was excellent! I am mostly vegetarian (pescatarian, really) so ordering wasn’t easy but our server was helpful. I will step out of my vegetarian box for sustainable seafood. I ordered the branzino and is was fantastic! If you are strict vegetarian your choices are very limited. Most of their broths are fish based. Excellent sticky rice! The flavors were so yummy! Highly recommend.

Food was fantastic, especially the pork belly. The menu is split into small and large plates so the waiter gave us recommendations on portion sizes after we ordered, which turned out to be on point. The pricing is listed as $31-50; I think the average should be a bit higher (maybe $50-75pp).

Very good food served in a casual atmosphere. Highly recommend the pork belly and the spare ribs. The sticky rice is superb. The curry is also very good albeit a bit too many noodles and not enough meat, but definitely filling and delicious. The drinks are a bit overpriced, but the food is not in my opinion. Second time here no disappointment, will definitely go back and strongly recommend.

Everything about this establishment was excellent. The one thing that I would recommend is that the bar stays open past 930 or whenever they close so someone can have a drink afterwards
