We stopped in here for dinner tonight. Lots of smiling staff, a good variety of curries being cooked by an indian chef. We ordered a chicken korma, chicken jalfrezzi, plain rice and butter naan. My partner loved his curry, after travelling for over 2 years he says its the closest curry to an English indian he has had. So he... More

Ate chicken legs and onion naan. It's tasty, cheap and fast. The staff were friendly, smiled and served fast. I think beer Lao may be perfectly matched with the food even thought the Indian tea I had ordered was good.

Ate here three times. The food is similar in taste regardless of which dish you order (each visit I had a chicken based dish). Naan is average. Service is average. Next time I'm in Vientiane I'd probably give it a miss. This probably isn't the most informative review you have read nor I written, but it kind of sums up... More

In a quiet location behind the Cultural Hall, this restaurant is not fancy, but it serves good, inexpensive Indian food. Service is prompt, friendly and meals are prepared quickly. It suits me!

We had the chicken tikka masala, rice and naan. The masala had good flavor. The naan was average. They servers seemed like they didn't want to be there. We paid 14k more here then at Namaste both meals were comparable.

This restaurant's chicken korma was our children's favourite meal in 4 weeks of travelling. Think that says it all! Great food, lots of veggie options, reasonably priced.

Didn't expect it was literally on the side road/street. We lost the feeling of dining in in a proper restaurant. (Well, maybe we had such a high expectation after 3 days trying to get 'Halal' meals in Vientiane). It can be concluded as an average rating eatery. Although it says 'Halal', the restaurant still serves alcoholic beverages. Nonetheless, the Pratha... More

Ate here one night because we'd already maxed out on all the delicious French food and needed a change. Surprisingly extensive menu and all kinds of sauces, naans, lassis - very impressive. The restaurant is exceedingly simple in construction - open front, thatched roof - but the food was solid and did not disappoint. No problems the next day either.... More

Cheap, tasty (onion pakora was great and basically a bhaji), fast service, and no deli-belly the next day. What more can you ask for? Would recommend to anyone missing Indian food whilst travelling for a long time!

Don't be fooled by the rather simple look: the food is great and after a while it's quite romantic. Staff is very friendly and fast. Don't forget the big lassi, with mango, banana and pineapple!

Thank M. A
