“Great introduction to Lao food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We ate here on our first night in Laos, so tired and very jet lagged. We had the Western Lao set menu, which comprised:
- Luang Prabang salad with watercress, tomato, cucumber and fried river weed with some sort of dressing - fresh and delicious;
- creamy green soup - no idea which veggies!
- either marinated buffalo kebabs - tasty but a bit tough - or Mekong river fish - delicious, definitely the main to pick
- creme brulee with tropical fruit salsa - small but just enough to end with something sweet.
Overall, a nice Lao-lite intro to local food for westerners who don't fancy buffalo bile and bitter herbs ...
Also a nice ambience.

Dear Su B,

Thank you for such a detailed comment – I believe people will get appetite by reading it!

The creamy green soup is the bamboo soup flavored with lemongrass and scented with local mint, it is very delicious indeed.

It is true that our menu has different options in order to please everyone. Buffalo is a must to try however as you mentioned, the Mekong river fish is as well a perfect choice.
This is the advantage of such a diversified cuisine – there is specialty for everyone!

We do hope to welcome you back for more culinary discoveries.

Kind Regards,

Pablo

“Excellent set lunch value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

This is a very expensive restaurant in a high-class hotel. But they have a FANTASTIC $10/pp 5-course set lunch menu. It is served by jacketed waiters in the garden, and includes a fish dish, chicken, veg, dessert, and coffee. One of the best meals we had in LP.

“Great Lao Food in a Pleasant Garden Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We had a table in the nicely maintained garden on the road just down from the town centre. Typical Lao menu including many traditional dishes. Spring rolls were up there with the best we had on the holiday and the chicken dish we shared was faultless - tender meat with classic local herbs. As good a meal/experience as we had in LP. Would certainly recommend to others but book in advance.

“Good food, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Food was very tasty and fresh. Fried riverweed with buffalo jam was super good, as was the spicy eggplant spread, and fresh whole fish. Service was very attentive.
If you want just drinks, sit on the side by the hotel as this is where the bar is.
