This restaurant was nearly full when we turned up but we still received such amazing service. The waiters were all polite, diligent and made sure we understood what everything was on the menu. They also showed us the best techniques for consuming the traditional dishes with sticky rice. You should definitely go with at least one other person to allow you to try as many different traditional dishes as possible. The menu encourages this by having multiple platter/taster type options for every course. Awesome, romantic dinner option with a view of the river.

Tamarind offers very good home made Laos food and is another one not to miss in Luang Prabang. Form the several I tride I rate it second after the Blue Lagoon. I took lunch there and the ambiance is nice with a view to the river shadowed by trees. Our favorite dish was also the lemon grass chicken, although the mixed plates with small portions of different things and sauces were also very nice.

Our first night in LP we visited Tamarind. The staff was very friendly and very helpful in helping us determine which dishes to get to try a variety of Laotion food. On each course the servers explained the dips, sauces and food. Also they added explanations on how best to eat the food (such as making a ball of sticky rice to dip in the sauces). We loved every dish- especially the river weed crackers- and also enjoyed the pleasant view off the balcony of the restaurant. This was our favorite place among the restaurants we ate in over the course of 4 days.

We had a feast here! Amazing food :P We wanted to try as much as possible from the Lao cuisine and ended up eating way to much - 'cause to food was just that good! The service is also really good and the staff is very helpful and they are explaining everything you wish to know about the food and know exactly was a vegan is - which for us was really comforting. If you are a vegan og vegetarian in Luang Prabang then please give your self a treat and eat here :D

We booked a table at Tamarind having read the reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The local dishes such as Or lam (Laotian stew) were excellent. We had a great table on the balcony and the service was first class.
