Vientiane - Post Report Question and Answers

What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

There are a wide variety of restaurants (French, Italian, Mexican, Russian, etc) and going out to eat is one of the great delights in Vientiane. A few pizza places deliver, but I never found a reliable delivery service like I have in other countries. - Jun 2020

There are many restaurant options in Vientiane. There are also lots of food delivery and takeout options too. - Oct 2018

No McDonald's or Burger King while we were there. There were great cheap restaurants where you could get a large bowl of mee/pho for less than US$3. Some of our favorite restaurants included L'Adress de Tinay - great French food, La Banneton for great baguettes, Le Silapa - my favorite by far - and I-beam. There was a cute crepes place that opened as I was leaving. Also Nudle - a take-out/delivery place. Silapa was probably the most expensive, but between the atmosphere, the gourmet food, and the friendly owners - it was worth it! - Jan 2014
