This was my first time there and I absolutely loved the food. We sat at the bar on a Friday night for dinner and there was a happy hour until 8:00. We ordered two appetizers and two entrees and put them between the two of us. There was so much food we had to take the leftovers home. I can't wait to go back and try more things on the menu! I give it 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘

So much flavor! My family and I go out for Thai food a lot, but we've wanted to try Laotian food this time - and we're really glad we did! The curries were rich, the steamed catfish was so soft and the crispy rice was so crispy. We finished it all so fast.

Great restaurant across the board. The Lao food is authentic and very tasty. The ambiance and service are also top-notch, with the restaurant run by a family and located in an attractive part of Oakland. Have been twice and definitely coming back again.
