Description: Rosella Fusion Restaurant is a friendly, family owned restaurant in the centre of Luang Prabang. Customers enjoy meals on our wooden terrace overlooking the beautiful Nam Khan river. The cuisine is a mixture of Lao and Western and is crafted by our Australian qualified Lao chef. It's a great place for lunch and dinner as well as a relaxing afternoon, watching local life on the riverbank, and a well priced evening cocktail.

“Tasty value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

With Tangor closed for that date, Coconut Garden and Tamarind were both fully booked, so we were happy to be seated at Rosella Fusion in a few minutes. It occupies a nice riverside spot by the Nam Ou River with a view of the Bamboo Bridge.

We ordered a papaya salad and 2 curries. There was more than enough for 2...probably for 3 at least. The meal was flavourful and certainly great value. It is not haute cuisine but certainly well prepared and tasty.

“Tasty Lao food at a nice riverfront location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We ate several times at Rosella during our stay in Luang Prabang and enjoyed every single time. Here you get it all: Very friendly service, beautiful location (outdoor seating) and delicious Lao food at reasonable prices...
When the restaurant is full, it may take some time until the meal is served - but worth the wait.
Enjoy :)

“The food was disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

The location is great, the service is questionable (even if on Laos time) and the food is most disappointing. And the menu beyond our meal wasn't very inspirational.
The value is decent, but do yourself a favour and book across the road at Tamarind and you will be pleased with the occasion.
Maybe Rosella needs another chance, but it isn't open for breakfast, as advertised, and the meals we had were very basic and unimpressive considering the amazing choice in the area.

“Worth the walk...................”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Rosella Fusion is a little way off the main street - but offers the opportunity to include it in a loop to include the night market.

A very nice place to eat. The food, service and location was very good. The perfect spot for a quiet meal - there's only 7/8 tables, all outside. Prices were reasonable and although the service was a little slow, we weren't in a hurry and we took it as fitting with a relaxed atmosphere!

Definitely recommend..................

“Hard for us to find but glad we did”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

It was pretty dark when we went down to Kingkitsarat Rd looking for Rosella Fusion. We did see the terrace, the lights and the tables when we first walked past it but we didn't see the sign. And, since there was no sign of any cooking being done we assumed this terrace was just a bar.

After a bit more walking around in the dark we eventually saw the sign and went in and sat down. (We need to pay more attention to the reviews!) It was then that we learned why we didn't see any cooking going on. It was all being done in a building across the street.

Though it took us a while to find this restaurant, we're very glad we did because this turned out to be our favorite meal in Luang Prabang. We shared Beef Laap Salad, Pork Stirfry with Lemongrass and Vegetables, steamed rice, a small carafe of wine and tea. The bill was about $25. Do bring cash as credit cards are not accepted
