Good Indian food
Posted on 11 / 25 / 2013
Real vegan food without mock meat is hard to find in Laos, so Indian is a good go-to. Jamil Zahid is located just two blocks from the popular Sihome Guesthouse (go out left, take the next two lefts) and has really delicious food.
It's reasonably priced, offers free drinking water, has incredible shakes, and is really accommodating to vegans (just explain when you're ordering). The customers are a mix of Westerners and locals, and the owner is really passionate about the success of the place. If there's a problem, he will fix it. He does sometimes ask to take pictures while you eat for his website, which we found endearing but others might find weird. We tried a variety of meals, returning there everyday we were in Vientiane. I would definitely recommend this place to meat eaters and vegos alike. Try the Dhal Tarkka and samosas, they were really great.
delicious, filling food for cheap, friendly staff, if not a bit overbearing, quiet atmosphere
