Food is great! Have been coming here for the past few years and has never let me down. Chicken Noodle(handmade noodles) soup, papaya salad, Laab and Pad Thai among our favorites. This is more of a local mom and pap restaurant, so one does not come for the service or ambiance. Can't wait to go again!

I have eaten here numerous times. This has become my favorite Laos/Thai place to eat. FYI, if you are non Asian, or not a regular here, your quality of service might be bothersome. I don't believe it's anything personal but this is more of a mom and pop place that caters more to friends and acquaintances. When I come with... More

I went to Lao Cafe 2 for my first time. My friend recommended me to go there. I went with my husband. We were treated very nice in the beginning. The decorations looks kind of low budget. The seats were worn-out. As we sat there and was looking at the menu the waitress came up to us. Her demeanor was... More

This place is wonderful. I recommend the fresh spring rolls, tom kha tofu soup and any kind of curry. I am never disappointed. Remember though, when they ask you how hot you want the papaya salad do not say to make it as hot as they can, it hurts so bad. Best thai food in town in my opinion.

I discovered Lao Cafe II on a biz trip to Fresburg about 2 years ago. Many of my friends in Fresno had no idea it was even there. Not sure what was going on that brought the negative review, but I have eaten there a dozen times, and while service is casual ( this a family joint in the hood,... More

My husband and I chose to ignore the terrible review on this website and follow the great word of mouth recommendation of a friend. We were so glad we did! We really enjoyed the food and the staff at Lao Cafe #2. It's a family business, the antithesis of most of the generic chain restaurants in this town and we... More

If you're looking for a great Laotian restaurant in Fresno, a place full of flavor, atmosphere, and friendly/helpful service this is NOT the place you want to visit! Basically if this sign comes into view RUN, don't walk, and find yourself a nice "roach coach". Upon entering the establishment I noticed that it was a generally clean environment, but there...
