Stall 29, food court Talat Sao Shopping Mall, 3F, Vientiane, Laos

Small vegetarian eatery in the middle of the bustling Talat Sao food court on the 3rd floor of the mall. Buy a ticket first at the main desk of the food court. Offers soups, spring rolls, fried rice, noodle, gluten, and other fast veggie foods to-go. Most food cost 15,000 kip. REPORTED SHUT SOMETIME EARLY-2015. Open Mon-Sun til 4pm.

OK - Edit

Has about 5 options including rice, noodle soup or spring rolls. I had the fried rice which was nice, and came with some impressively realistic fatty pork - wish I could buy that at home!
Beware the mall seems to have two buildings - the food court is in the southern one (I almost gave up after searching the northern building which has 5 floors but the top 3 are not in use).

Pros: Tasty food

Cons: Not much choice

In need of a quick fix? - Edit

Then this is the place.
I ate here as it is conveniently situated next to the bus stop, but otherwise, wouldn't usually be my first choice.
The food was ok. It was quick, warm and considering it's location, looked reasonable clean in the tiny kitchen.
However, you are in a massive food hall where every body else cooks an array of dead things. So if the smell of fish or chicken is a little unsettling for you, maybe try another restaurant.
The cost was cheap, and it all works on a token system. You purchase tickets at the counter before you get your food. 30,000 dong was enough for two meals and a drink.

Pros: quick, lots of food for your money, next to bus station

Cons: very busy in food hall, lots of meat being cooked next to you

Best spring rolls in town - Edit

This modest food court stand offers a very convenient location for tourists, Vientiane's cheapest veg fare and a few very tasty treats. The spring rolls are extremely tasty and even have a special touch: fried glutinous rice gives them a bit of crunchiness. At 10 000 LAK a plate, this is a treat even though the food court itself is of course a noisy place. Great for a great snack or for tupperware-packing.

Pros: tasty, best value, convenient location

Cons: noisy

Average Food with lots of Mystery Meats - Edit

I agree with all the other reviews that the fresh spring rolls for 10,000 kip are the best thing here. They have fresh greens and arent fried with no MSG

The other food is all pretty standard with lots of oil, over cooked and they use a lot of MSG. At lunchtime you can get three veg dishes on rice for 10,000 kip.

Ive never had anything really delicious here. The rely heavily on mock meats from Taiwan whose ingredients are always questionable.

I would suggest walking a couple of blocks over to one of the other all veg places for the buffets which are far better quality although they do cost a bit more.

Pros: Veg, Across from bus station, air con

Cons: MSG , shopping mall/loud TV

fun / spicy / quick - Edit

just went again today, they make a great quick soup with lots of mystery mock meats and boast dangerous assortment of hot sauces. might want to ask them to hold off on the msg ("peng nua"), which they sometimes sprinkle on at the end.

nice spring rolls, fried rice, and other quick mall foods! friendly and family-run, minimal English but it's not a problem

Pros: spicy, convenient, fun

now moved upstairs? - Edit

perhaps because of renovations to Vientiane's central market i could only find a vegetarian place in the food court at the top floor of the new market building. This all-vegetarian place had basic lunch foods (eat-in or take-away), made in front of you in a clean kitchen. The food was basic but fine (the fresh rice-paper rolls are good).

Take the elevators to the top floor and it's the first place on your right as you walk in the door. But first you will need to buy tickets to purchase the food on your left after entering the food court.

The two women serving me didn't speak English but were very friendly!

Pros: fresh food, inexpensive
