    Very flavorful. I will come back to the restaurant. Service was a little slow but it was a slow day in the City and later in the evening. Service did not lessen the overall experience. Food was excellent.

    The restaurant was overwhelmed from the conference attendees. Service and food were slower. The food was pretty good: - $38 appetizer combo 3/5 one of the sauce had hair on it - papaya salad 5/5 - chicken fried rice 4/5 - beef curry 4/5 very small and difficult to share

    I’ve always loved Lao table. But I felt that we were being rushed to order food. We sat at 8 and were asked to place all our orders by 830 because the kitchen was closing soon. We felt very rushed and ended up not enjoying our meal.

    Quality of food has deteriorated over time. Papaya salad, which I ordered, was so salty that it was inedible. Appetizers were cold and not made fresh.
