Reviews for Famous Lao Papaya

A little cozy place just opened recently. Modern decor space. Clean dining and service area. Things are kept neatly. My 1st time there. Ordered the papaya plater to go. Food came rather quick and made to order. Neatly packed. The papaya shreds were crunchy and tasty. The chicken wings were crispy hot and juicy. The sausage is typical Laos style. This plater can feed 4 light eaters. I would come back to try other dishes. Ppl can buy the sausage, beef jerky take home. Wish there...read full review

I'm so happy my friend introduced me to this place- I've been here twice this week alone! The nam khao is legit and it tastes SO good. Price is perfect. The sausage is tasty and I'm happy it's an option as an add-on. I personally like the spicy sausage more than the mild- but I love spicy food so it's good they have both levels. The papaya salad is bomb, too. I can't wait to try more dishes!

If you are looking for Southeast flavors, specifically 💣 BOMB 💣 authentic Lao food, this is the place! Ordered the Famous platter and Kao Piek Sen. Flavorful noodle soup and all items in the platter were delish! Highly recommend!
