Oh my! This is a hidden gem! Tried plates that has pictures in the menu when visited with 4 friends. Great taste but had to wait in line for 50 min.

First time to try Laotian, very similar to Thai. Excellent small hole in the wall place with fantastic food! Very inexpensive! Great service! It is tucked into a neighborhood so you need to park and then walk a bit. It was very easy finding street...More

All three dishes we ordered were superb. If it's a busy weekend night get there at opening time to avoid a wait- lots of people appreciate this place. The atmosphere here is happy verging on festive. Several little kids doing percussion, but I thought it...More

Yes, the neighborhood is iffy at night. Street parking is difficult. The restaurant is very casual (think, formica tables and naugahyde chairs). However, service was quick and gracious. The food was sublime. The Champa sampler appetizer was a meal for two in itself, with some...More

I've heard about this place for a couple years and finally went there for a weekday lunch. The duck curry was to die for. I can't wait to try another dish at lunch again - dinner, I know, is usually crowded. Service is efficient, and...More

This has been my secret spot ever since I moved into the neighborhood. I could live on the Papaya Salad and the Larp salad alone. Everything I have had has been excellent and at these prices, its a real bargain.

Champa Garden has excellent Laotian cuisine . The food is freshly prepared and very tasty. It can be spicy so if you don't like it hot they will honor it and make it mild. It isn't a large place so make a reservation

I had pinned this place from yelp a couple weeks ago and just got to try it out last weekend. Literally 10min away from Lake Merritt hidden in a residential neighborhood in Oakland. We went there at opening dinner time just after 5 and let...More
