"There's a relatively unknown Lao restaurant called Vientiane Cafe in Oakland in the residential Allendale neighborhood in East oakland loacted at 38th Avenue and Allendale off the 580. It used to be the Laotian Arts and Cultural Center, but now it's a small restaurant. The menu is mainly Southeast Asian (Vietnamese, Thai) but there are definitely Lao and Cambodian dishes and you can talk to the friendly women who work there and request Laotian dishes."
Any other comments on this spot?
