Went because I love Indian food and it came highly recommended by guide and hotel owner, but nothing redeeming about it. The service was at least 10-15 minutes and I even grabbed my own menu. The food came about an hour after I sat down,...if not later. I got a bowl of Aloo Gobi, garlic naan and ginger tea. The tea was good and hot. The food was not great and actually felt quite sick from it that night. But the service? Went to pay, owner put food out, tallied up bills...thinking they were mine. Nope. He wanted to do everything but get my bill ready. I did and said nothing rude to get this treatment. I pointed to my bill and seemed to annoy him further. If I had the correct change I would have left but I didn’t. Unfortunately owner and food seem to have different days. Some better than others. I got bad day for both! Don’t recommend this restaurant. There’s others with better service and food.More

First impressions were uninviting with very basic, however visibly clean décor. Internet was free and the location is good being downtown amongst other restaurants and guesthouses & hotels! We ordered Buttered Chicken, Garlic Naan Bread & Beef Biryani rice – the meal arrived quickly and...was quite good – not comparably good to being in India kind of good, but very good for Indian food in Laos and at a very good value.More

Great flavors from different parts of India. Nice selection of veggie and meat dishes. Papad was a great start to the meal. Fast service but not rushing you. Good value for money. Would eat there again.

This place attracted quite a few people. One minute I was there on my own, the next my friends I met on the bus wandered in and many other tables were filled. And rightly so. They do delicious Indian food! The naan bread was great...and they had heaps of vego options. They recommended the eggplant dish and I loved it. The sauce (gravy as it's often called in Indian) had a really lovely flavour. I had the vegetarian cutlets for entree and they were ok, maybe lacking in flavour a little but everything else was great.More

Pretty good Indian food at a good price. Decent sized portions. We had veg samosa to start, followed by a couple of different curries, a dhaal, rice and naan. Couldn’t finish everything and we have big appetites. Not the warmest welcome and the place is...very basic, but don’t be put off. Wish the food had more chilli heat though. We asked for spicy but it was medium at best. However, this is always tricky to get right. Would definitely recommend over the appalling Italian place we tried the previous evening.More

Wow this food is excellent Indian food. We had amazing dinner. Restaurant run by a lovely Indian gentleman who has lived in Laos for 20 years. Would easily choose to go this restaurant again

I have been here (when it was based in Vang Vieng and in Phonsavan) and it may not look ike the fanciest place but the food beats every Indian in Vientiane, Vang Vieng and the rest I have tried in Laos. Such nice owner, food...is always good and good portions and prices. It really is one of the best restaurants in Phonsavan. In fact it's my favourite.More

It’s great that this restaurant is within easy proximity of the bus station, the market and many nearby hotels. I came here with some people who were on my bus from Luang Prabang. The food was excellent and it was cheap as well. I had...Chicken Tikka Masala, boiled/steamed rice, a plain naan and a bottle of Lao Beer and the bill came to 56,000 Kip, roughly £5. Excellent value for money. I hadn’t eaten all day as the bus took much longer than expected so the meal really hit the spot! Will come back.More

I spent one night at phonsavan and visited Nisha twice for both dinners. We found this place amazing value at 18.000 per vegetarian dish and 30.000 per meat based dish. Portions are large and very tasty. Large Choice of vegetarian and meat base dishes. Also...good selection of nans. Location is very central (near minivan station s). Restaurant is at the main Street and all front is open into the street which. This is pretty much like most of places here, but the downside is some dust and noise from street.More
