Our group was attending a class near the restaurant. We stopped in for lunch. Everybody's food was excellent! The portion size was good. And the price was unbelievable. Less than $10. The service was awesome. A must if you are in the area.

Absolutely loved having dinner here! We shared a huge veggie egg roll as an appetizer and it was super yummy! For the main meal I had a spicy peanut curry dish and my friend had a pad thai type dish, both were superb! Can't wait...More

Small, spicy family run. Authentic quality dinners at a reasonable price. You might have to get drinks across the street but it's worth the wait. I've been going for years and it's consistently fantastic.

This is a great find. This small restaurant serves great traditional Laotian food (similar to Thai but, in my opinion, even more interesting flavors and textures, due to a broader use of vegetables). Four heat levels from Timid to Laotian Spicy are available, the hottest...More

The menu offers a very large selection of many flavors with choices of various proteins or vegetarian. Very nicely flavored food. The spiciness is based on a scale of four denoting the scoop of peppers. Good and fast service also.

My partner and I visited Lao Laan-Xang for a late lunch yesterday. We loved it. Southeast Asian is my favorite cuisine, and Lao-Laan-Xang did not disappoint. It's a fairly small space and there were only two tables when we arrived @2:30. Our waitress was friendly...More

Pineapple peanut chicken curry. Wow. Madison keeper, for locals and visitors. Even with the one hundred character requirement, it is worth my time to get this review submitted.
