    D.C.'s Lao restaurant has made a splash with its spicy and unusual fare (yes, ant eggs have appeared on the menu). Try the jungle menu for the spiciest dishes the restaurant has to offer. Read more

    Real Lao food. Be adventurous, it's worth it. Can't miss: naem khao (crispy rice), any grilled meat (ping), sai oua (sour sausage), than mak hong (Lao papaya salad, funkiness at its best).

    Naem Khao ແນມເຂົ້າ is a wonderful dish full of flavor and textures, highly recommend! Crispy rice, coconut, lime, scallions, sour pork, peanuts, cilantro, with lettuce wraps.

    Fantastic Laotian food. Naem Khao is a super tasty coconut rice salad with sour pork; Piing pork skewers with spicy chili sauce delicious too.

    Fried quail whispers of ginger, garlic, oyster sauce but shouts of white pepper. Delicious. Sliced pork sausage eaten with matchsticks of fresh ginger is charcuterie by way of Southeast Asia. Read more

    Just wow! We had nothing bad. You have to get the curry puffs, the salad with the sour pork and peanuts, the fried quail and the sausage dish with the ginger sticks. Also excellent Old Fashioned's

    There’s a lot to pore over on the menu, so start with an order of pork sausages and sweet chile-laced chicken wings and go from there. Read more

    Fantastic flavors. Sour, tangy, spicy, savory. The fish in banana leaf was delicious, and the pork sausage was fresh and juicy. Loved the sticky rice appetizer.

    Tasty! Def get the lemongrass pork sausage. The pork skewers were a little ok salty. Got some pork belly plate that was too salty too. It's like Thai with a flair. Mango salad was good. 3.5/5

    some of the best food I've had in DC. Try the skewers, fried rice, and the sausage if you're trying to play it safe.

    Best damn curry of my life. Jungle menu (specifically the spicy papaya salad) is for fun, adventurous masochists.

    They take reservations by phone, so all you have to worry about is how many orders of curry puffs you want.
