Lao Lane Xang 2
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Don’t let the valet service out front or the lounge-like atmosphere of Lao Lane Xang 2 fool you: although slightly more expensive than its shabbier parent restaurant opposite, the South East Asian cooking here is still deliciously affordable.
For the best experience, reserve a table upstairs with its fountains, plants and statues. Prompt service brings things like dried beef and papaya salad, caramelised pork and beef curry with coconut milk (€8-€8.40), done with a beautifully light touch, while the whole fried mackerel with Laotian herbs (€14.80) is a standout dish. For a light dessert, try the roast pineapple in coconut milk.
Lunchtime set menus at €10.80 include a starter, salad, main, rice and a glass of wine – a real bargain.
