There is a reason why Tamarind is one of Luang Prabang's best restaurants: The food is delicious, the service excellent and the setting is romantic and elegant. We had the Lao tasting menu which included signature dishes like fish baked in banana leaves and chicken stuffed lemongrass. Our server explained every course and we came away with happy tummies and a better understanding of Laos food.

Thought we would not be able to find another great Laotian restaurant after the last one but we were surprised! The dishes here were great. The sampler dish was filled with five samples of great tasting dishes. So was the stuffed lemongrass with pork. Opened up the lemongrass and the tasted pork was full of flavor. The dessert degustation is another great dishes within a dish. Go try this place.

If you're new to Laotian food, this is a great place to sample everything. All food is explained and they have great sampler plates for trying. VERY reasonably priced too!

Delicious! Also 10/10 recommend their cooking class.
The lemongrass stuffed chicken is amazing. They also have a great sausage platter.

While service was lovely, quick and accommodating.. the food was a bit lackluster. My husband and I shared the sausage plate while our son had a plate of noodles. It wasn't bad but I was expecting a bit more after friends had recommended it highly to us.

So sorry Lea, we can understand your disappointment. It's hard when you bring expectations somewhere and you feel let down. The truth is, Tamarind is the place to try a range of new flavours, to experience the unusual and perhaps unexpected flavours of Lao cuisine. Opting for sausage and noodles probably didn't take you on that path. Our menu is designed to offer a range of taster choices and unusual dishes for those interested in experimenting, but it seems you didn't choose from those. Perhaps if you were to come back and have a good talk with our staff we could give you the experience you were looking for.
