    vientiane cafe

    This restaurant HAD excellent food, but we ate dinner there last night and things have gone badly downhill. My house salad featured brown, limp, wilted greens: I refused to pay for it. My Pho soup with extra beef had very little of the latter and the beef I ate was tough and chewy. My husband's fried rice was bland and under-spiced. Perhaps this was the chef's night off -- but it was Saturday night!

    Really good food with ok service

    I went to this restaurant with my dad today because we didn't want to take the train into center city. When we got there I noticed the place was decorated very nicely. However once sitting down we quickly noticed that our server didn't know much about the food , which would have been fine if it weren't for the fact that I have celiac's disease. He failed to mention to me that the entree that I ordered had something in I that made me pretty sick even though I had mentioned prior to that my condition. Like I've worked in food service and if I knew someone had a dietary issue I'd probably stop them from ordering something that would make them super sick...but all that being said the food was great and I didn't even mind the terrible tummy ache

    Scrumptious

    I have enjoyed every dish that I have ever ordered at Vientiane, with one exception that wasn't to my taste. The food is fresh and flavorful, and the service is wonderful. The vegetarian and gluten-free items are clearly marked. The expansion into the building next door has made it more spacious. I have eaten there many times and plan to continue!

    No longer worth it!

    Had takeout (chicken and beef pad thai) from here tonight - they've raised their prices ($14 for chicken, $15 for beef, when it used to be $11), without changing their portion sizes! Not only did they not tell us the total when we ordered over the phone, they also didn't give us a receipt when we picked up. Super unimpressed.

    Fantastic

    I have to disagree with the negative posts here. I have been to this restaurant at least 4 times in the past 6 months, and every time has been fabulous. Their lunch special for under $9 includes soup, and appetizer, and an entree, and all are great--perfectly cooked, delicious, flavorful. It's a satisfying amount of food for mid-day. The service has been pretty timely, and the servers are efficient and sweet. I love the simple and relaxing decor, the location right on Baltimore Ave, and the little fruit candies you get with your bill. I wish they were open Sundays too!

    mediocre

    Unfortunately mediocre, bland, doesn't try very hard to please. Nice folks though

    used to be so great

    This place used to be my favorite Thai restaurant in the neighborhood and the city, but I agree with the below reviewer that it seems their chef may have changed, because the food has not been what it used to be. Before it was flavorful and perfectly cooked, whereas recently it has been bland and hit or miss. I'm praying they see these reviews and make the necessary changes, because I'd like to go there regularly again. I would still recommend giving it a try though, as I'd like to see it survive this difficult period of its food quality.
