Nam Kaow (fried rice ball salad) and the Kaow soy noodle soup are my favorite here. Get the sampler if it's your first time. Delicious food but extremely slow service.
Now I got why the hell it takes so much time in a line to get in! food is delicious . We had a great with friends last night.
Really like the nam kaow (fried rice salad with lettuce cups). Very good food, off the beaten path Oakland.
The service was quite efficient for me...fast even. so perhaps they've changed since those earlier tips.
Get the champa sampler !!!
Everything is wonderful
Larb, Lao style. Not for vegetarians.
Chicken Larb was great; try the rice balls too.
A comfort spot for my girlfriend and I. Can't enjoy regular chicken soup after having tried their chicken soups and their curry dishes are a must-try.
This place is laughably slow.
Hours on yelp and foursquare are NOT accurate. Drove all the way here expecting it to be open until 9pm (as it shows) but it is closed from 3:30-5pm. Pretty annoyed.
Order take out and go pick it up. Otherwise you'll just wait for.ever.
Pumpkin Curry = best thing ever.
There's definitely a wait but it was worth it. staff was apologetic about the wait.They were fast upon taking orders and serving the food. Over all great place to dine. Nam Kao was really good!
Pumpkin curry is so goood!
Get here a half hour before you intend to eat! Fills up fast!
The fried rice ball salad and the duck curry with eggplant are both so amazing I want to cry!
I like the disco ball. That's what does it for me.
They were great about making my food vegetarian (no fish sauce, no oyster sauce). Just ask!
Great Food! Crappy service. I've never been to a place where the wait staff acts like they are being troubled by working there. .....anyway great eats!
I think it was called lumpa or lulupula or something but it's salad and delicious.
Want to try the Lao style papaya salad despite the warning? Be prepared for authentic crazy fish paste. I'm sweating profusely from "medium" spiciness. Ask for iced water in advance.
My favorite is the Seafood Pho.
I love the red curry and pad see yew
Red Curry is very Yummylicious! Not hot at all which is a plus for some people but not for me...I like it spicy...
Restaurant.com has gift certificates for this place but they apply the discount off the total after tax+tip so it's not as good of a deal. Food is decent for the price though.
Avoid the Lao style papaya salad!
Consistently horrible service. Nice kids, but they do not know how to run a restaurant. You'll fight through it for the amazing food though.
Everyone has slow service as a tip, I don't notice because the food is really great. I would recommend the mango beef, pineapple shrimp and the fried banana with coconut ice-cream.
The seafood pho is incredible. I always...ALWAYS get it.
While you're at it. Try the nam kao (fried rice ball) it's great!
Champa sampler. Just do it
Hella slow service
Nam Kaow( Fried rice ball salad) is the best. Lao sausage and Larp
Food ok; service not so good. One of the few Thai restaurants in the area.
Food is really great here, but wait can be really long and service sub-par. Take out is a good option is you're in a hurry.
Always. The fried quail, the beef mus sa mun curry and the tilapia with cilantro sauce. Hell yes. Finish with fried banana or mango sticky rice for the win.
Pineapple Fried Rice! Tom-Yum if you're feeling soupy Mango w/ sticky rice or Fried Banana w/ coconut ice cream for dessert!
