Lao Kitchen is a chilled-out riverside joints serve traditional Thai and Southeast Asian dishes to be enjoyed while overlooking the Mekong.
Why Lao Kitchen is special?
There is a distinct European charm when dining out in Vientiane, where you can watch the locals and tourists go about their business; an experience sometimes lost in the more hectic and polluted cities of Hanoi and Bangkok.
The restaurants with river view that overlook the banks of bordering Thailand offer a decidedly unique and relaxed choice for an evening meal. This superb new Lao restaurant is contemporary, fresh and unfailingly creative in its execution of trad-Lao dishes. Colourful walls dotted with superior photography, Indy tunes and decent service complement a menu spanning stews to Luang Prabang sausage (full of vim), laap variations, stir fried Morning Glory, and various palate-friendly sorbets. Prepare to return again and again.
