Thip Khao located in Columbia Heights

Thip Khao opened its doors in 2014 serving Laos Cuisine by Chef Seng. The menu here is extensive and full of variety with a broad selection of snacks, salads, stews, curries and entrees that make it perfect for a group to share. The Jungle menu caters for those more adventurous and willing to explore Lao’s cuisine a little deeper. Dishes are full of explosive and new flavors that creates an excitement every time a new dish arrives to the table.
