I did not know this, but a friend told me that this restaurant, which I have been going to since 2007, used to be at a different location on West Capitol Ave. In the previous location, it was a "go to" place for downtown state workers wanting Thai/Vietnamese food back almost 20 years ago. Now, in my last 9 years... More

It took ten years before I ventured into a undistinguished strip mall which is not inviting that I found a gem of an unpretentious small restaurant. I tried it a lunch time. It has a varied menu. At lunch time you have a variety of item to select from at modest prices. The food was very good as well as... More

We've been to this restaurant several times, as live just a few minutes away. It's not easy for a non-local to find, but definitely worth it. Just pull in next to the Chevron station and go to the back of the parking lot. We've never been disappointed. The service is always friendly, and the food is fresh and flavorful. The... More

This little gem of a restaurant is the only Laotian restaurant in the Sacramento area. They offer a mix of Thai and Lao style foods. You will find typical Thai dishes such as Pad Thai but also others less familiar. Lunch specials are only $5.99 and Thai Iced Tea or Thai Iced Coffee will only set you back $2. My... More

I just returned from a trip to Laos, and this food brought me right back. It is run by a lovely and easy going family with warm smiles. It was fun to chat with them about Laos. Try the Laos sausage. It is like no other sausage I've had. My absolute favorite!! Order the beef soup and spice it up... More

I love Thai food, so this was a special treat to enjoy Thai and Laotian food. I especially loved the spinach with peanut sauce and your choice of with or without meat (chicken or beef). The drunken noodles were yummy but my favorite was the hot sticky rice with fresh mango. I think that next time I'd get the banana... More

The meat tasted off-flavor and stale in the eggplant chicken and lemongrass chicken. The squid salad was flavorful with fragrant combination of lime, lemongrass, fish sauce, Thai pepper and sugar. Little skimpy on squid tho'. Tom Yam soup was average. The restaurant has a large selections, so it will be worthwhile to come back for other dishes. Dishes are of... More
