We got takeout, an H4 vegetarian bowl (my wife loved it) and the H7 lamb bowl for me plus the green papaya salad. We both agreed the meal was excellent and even with takeout the vegetables still a little crunchy. We thought the papaya, garlicky the way we love it, could have used more fresh lime and both bowls were a little bland and could have benefited from some cilantro/lime/lemon grass or other complimentary flavors.

WOW! This place is so amazing! We ordered way more than we could eat so we could try a lot of dishes and there was nothing that disappointed! The Nam Khao Tod was phenomenal! Super crunchy and flavorful. The Spicy Bowl had so much flavor diversity that every bite was like a new experience. We have never been to a Lao restaurant and we live about 45 minutes away but we will definitely be making this a monthly spot for us! So happy to be taking the left overs home for dinner 12/10!!!

Good food, fast service, and nice people. Called ahead for takeaway and it was very easy.The menu features excellent descriptions, they definitely planned on helping people who were unfamiliar with Laotian food. As a result I'll be getting better acquainted through future visits.

First time having Laotian cuisine and it was so good- the servings were huge and you'll probably ask for to go boxes after. So glad that Dine-In is open although the tables could be spaced out a foot more apart. Spicy bowl wasn't spicy at all but it was fully loaded with beef, enoki, mushrooms, about 1/2 dozen quail eggs, shrimp, and tofu. The jerky was simply amaze- served with sticky rice, it has an awesome bacon like flavor and texture. Greenlake/Greenwood is so lucky to have something like this come along. Parking out front just watch the signs on Aurora for parking time restrictions. This being a brand new place, the service will need some patience as the guys there are learning how to run a restaurant still- I had to ask for utensils, they delivered my food to the wrong table, and a few other little things but overall this place is about to go off and I'm glad I got in when it wasn't busy.

Great new restaurant in the north Seattle area! I haven’t had any Laotian food in the area before and was excited to discover this restaurant and it did not disappoint!The service was friendly and prompt. The food was delicious, authentic, with generous portions. Will def be coming back to try the other dishes.

Wow wow woowwww this place is soooo yummy. My friends and i ordered a feast and everything was satisfactory. The papaya salad was very good we ordered spicy number 3 and it was almost too hot so beware! Many options and very flavorful. The sticky rice went perfectly with thom khem. I absolutely loved the kao piek noodle soup, very soothing. We also ordered chicken wings and thai tea. Literally nothing disappointed, we were literally dancing while eating kt was so good!

SO GOOD AND AUTHENTIC!! As a Laotian person who misses her mom’s cooking (who lives in another state) this was sooo on point and way better than a lot of Thai restaurants selling this stuff, if you’re expecting Lao dishes. The kao piek was huge! Other things we ordered that we LOVED were the ping sen, fried chicken, thom khem, larb, and the papaya salad. We both ordered the papaya salad and larb with a 3 out 5 spiciness. The papaya salad was SPICY for even a person who has a high spice tolerance, but the larb was very very tolerable for people who don’t tolerate that much spicy. Definitely could have done without the beef bowl, but it was good (but the kao piek was better)! Nice no-frill spot, must give it a try!

Loved the food! Very flavorful. The server was friendly and attentive. We ordered larb gai and the dish in the photo (forgetting the name of it). Spice level 4 wasn’t super spicy. Highly recommend this place, it’s a hidden gem.

Great place! First time trying Lao food and I absolutely loved it!! Server was super friendly, food came out in a timely manner!! The Thai tea is bomb!! Totally recommend the Thom Khem super flavorful dish! The papaya salad was super good! We got a 3 spicy level and it was very spicy so if you can't handle it you might want to go less! The larb was also soooo good eat it with the cucumber it's such a fun combo!! The sticky rice is also really good!!

Such a friendly place. Warm and polite servers. The parking is in the back or on the street. There are a lot of traditional Lao soups and other dishes. I had the chicken bowl and ordered a skewer of beef on the side!  Everything was so flavorful and satisfying. It has umami!  

A new restaurant, but they have it all together. No mistakes on my order.

Good luck!  They are open now for takeout and will be for eat-in soon; once the Governor opens up for in-house dining!
