We had a very nice lunch here. The river fish wrapped in banana leaf was excellent and the eggplant dip was the best we had in Luang Pabrang. They're proud of their food - the restaurant offers a Laos cooking class. A very satisfying 3...More

The restaurant is just at the skirt of walking street, a bit more quiet. I was a bit disappointed with the food, it was much better a few of years ago.

Sat outside on the veranda and had a tasty lunch. Green papaya salad was delicious and the spring rolls were great also. Would eat there again if we could.

Great place, great food. We enjoyed the evening with excellent food and very special attention of the employees. The Lao food is very special and hot too, if you like Asian cuisine you will have a great time. Try the tasting menues.

This is at the other end of the Night Market and we sat out on the front terrace. Although the food was tasty (Aubergine with Pork and Minced Beef with Morning Glory), the waiter was not attentive. Possibly because there was a party of 20...More

I would say this place had better food than many places in Luangprabang. They did very good laos food but not so popular amongst tourists. Good for lunch and dinner.
