Came for lunch, ordered way too much food, but wanted to taste it all. Staff was attentive and friendly. Spouse is vegan, which was no problem. Lettuce wraps are amazing!

The staff were welcoming and thoughtful despite a busy restaurant and language barriers. The food flavours packed a great punch with all the herbs and sauces. Meats were cooked well. Loved the vegetarian options. Definitely coming back again.

Really delicious food at a good price and attentive staff. Will come back. If you want to sit outside you better reserve. I came without reservation and ate inside.

We got the tips from our hotel and you need to book a table. The food was ok, not more. Service pretty good, but we think the place is over rated and you can find so many better places. Kind of expensive as well to...More

I went to Tamarind my first night in LP after it was recommended by a staff member at my guesthouse. I was hoping to experience good Laotian Cuisine. The place is nice and the menu explains a good bit about Laotian food, but it is...More

Hi Sanfrankate. Sadly, you've missed the transport that takes people from the restaurant to our lakeside cooking school. So it's not really possible to join the class after it has started. It's unfortunate you didn't phone... More
