Description: Dyen Sabai offers Lao typical food. From November to August, we offer breakfast. We also have a nice selection of desert (foreigner sweet.. sorry the Laotians don't eat that much sweet!!) We also, have happy hour from noon to 7 pm, 2 cocktails for the price of one, on selected cocktails. You can reach us with a bamboo bridge (in dry season) (there is a fee for the bamboo bridge of 5,000 kips from 8 am to 8 pm, after this the bamboo bridge is free). We also do free boat from noon to closing when the bamboo bridge is not there (rainy season only)

You have to cross the bamboo bridge to get here (5000kip per person and supposedly free after 6pm but we had to pay even though we went after). The BBQ was amazing - generous portions and if you haven't tried it before I recommend going here. Lovely outdoor location by the riverbanks, decent happy hour cocktails and the squid with green peppers is one of the best dishes I've had. Highly recommend - Just remember to be careful on your way back especially if you've had a few drinks!

5 stars for ambiance
The food was ah-ok. I want here within an hour after arrival. I was tired, so my opinion could be affected. That said, I had the steamed rice with some mushroom thingy and it was okay. Not bad, not great either. The ambiance was pretty but it was so dark it did not matter. However the decks are prettily arranged.

surrounded by bamboo trees, it is a well hidden place but worth crossing the bamboo bridge for.
Go for the Lao fondue and the fruit shakes

Came to Dyen Sabai in happy hour so we had 2 Sex on the beach for 25.000 kips. The place is green, nice and cool with perfect lightning (was there in sunset). Crossing an old bamboo bridge then going up a few wooden steps to get there was an interesting experience too.

A long wait even with not many people. Service was slow to provide the menu and even to order drinks. We were sitting right in front of the bar as well. There were not so many people. I would say subpar for service. Food was about a half hour wait which sorta seems to be the way in Laos, sometimes it is freshly made. Ordered the green curry, and would say its one of the best ones in Luang Prabang- can taste the freshness. Also a fish dish was good and fresh. Good sticky rice on the side. Juice drinks were overpriced and was served way too slow considering.
