My husband and I went to the Lao Laan-Xang on Williamson, and it was delicious. I got the squash curry with chcken, and my husband got the beef with peanut sauce. I got mine with a level 3 heat, and hubby a 2. I was VERY happy with the flavor, heat and quantity of my dish. Hubby wished he had... More

I live in Madison, and this is one of my top, top, top restaurants. I take every out of town visitor to eat here. Their curries are just incredible. The squash curry might be my favorite meal to eat in Madison. And you get enough food to last through leftovers at least once if not twice. LLX is a Madison... More

Delicious vegetarian entrees, limited vegan fair and difficult for the vegan who is also trying to avoid oils. But all in all, delicious food and a very nice atmosphere.

Our family stopped here while passing through Madison. Our server was exceptional taking time to explain the menu options and describe each dish in detail. She was on top of her game the entire meal. An order of Crab Rangoon was delicious. No grease here, just fried lightly to perfection. Entrees of curry and a shrimp dish were good but... More

We shared an order of Tofu Spring Rolls which we both enjoyed although we agreed our tastes may have preferred the Shrimp - next time. One order of Garlic Ginger and one of Steamed Catfish in Banana Leaf and we were both transported to that blissful happy food place. It had been many years since we've been to Lao Laan-Zang,...

I love this place (and their other location on Willy Street, too). The catfish in banana leaves is so good I have a hard time exploring the rest of the menu. The service is always excellent and the atmosphere is warm and inviting.

We were in Madison for a short visit and decided to try someplace we hadn't been before. After reading other reviews on tripadvisor we decided to give this place a try. We're glad we did. We have eaten at Thai restaurants in many cities and this one is as good as any we've been to. You could smell the aroma... More

the squash curry was probably the best curry dish i've ever had! I got it aggressively hot and it was perfect but they offer it much milder if you wish or slightly hotter. It was lightly sweetened by creamy coconut mild and the Laotini (vodka, splash of lime and dash of lychee liquor was a perfect balance with it. Love... More
