Super minimalistic decor, could be a labour cafe

Straight-forward menu, two starters and quite a few not so well-known, vegetarian dishes.

Impossible to pronounce the names of the dishes, however they are quite tasty, with genuine Chinese flavors. It's better if you go together with other people and share your dishes so you can try as many different as you can.

Wine list provides some solutions to combat the spiciness. Decent prices for Stockholm, around 300-400 sek per person.

This was a lovely meal from start to finish. Everything was delicious. My carnivore son was also really impressed.
It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The staff are all really friendly and the place although small is very comfortable.
Unsurprisingly it is really busy so get there early or book ahead.

As a vegetarian, it is a delight to come to a place that serves ONLY vegetarian dishes and a great variation of them. Asian touch of course, but you can choose to eat spicy and not to.

I was there with my omnivorous boyfriend and we both agreed that we had the best meals ever. The meat substitutes are amazing and taste like meat.
It was packed as it is a small and very busy place but if I ever have a chance to go back to Stockholm, I'd eat there all the time without hestitation.

Lao Wai is definitely not a restaurant for only vegetarians. The food is tasty and the atmosphere is relaxed. The place is small so it often gets full and sometimes the service is a bit slow but our waiter was very friendly.

The menu has many options and if you have problems with choosing, you can easily ask for advise. The courses are divided in soya protein (GMO-free), tofu (organic) or others.

I often think that Chinese food can get a bit fatty/greasy but this is great. The ingredients are very fresh and well cooked by the chef that you can see in the kitchen.

Tips: The courses are very big and can be easily shared. If you can't finish it you can always ask for a doggy bag.
