The idea of crossing a bamboo bridge to get lunch is amazing and really romantic. I love alcoves seating areas and the view of the river, though obstructed, is very nice. However, the food is overpriced, even compared to the already overpriced Luang Prabang. I ordered the steamed fish wrapped in banana leaf, and the portions were really small. There... More

DYEN Sabai is in a very nice location, surrounded by trees and the setup is great with wood tables, very cozy. It is across the river so you have to cross the bamboo bridge. We spent New Year's eve there, there were a lot of people and a good ambiance with good staff. The food is very classical and not... More

It's well worth crossing the bamboo bridge to this restaurant in a lovely garden setting with a private laid-back feeling. They do an excellent Lao barbecue, curries, pad thai, and a steamed chocolate pudding "delight". Lots of fans ensure no insects hang around. Some tables have a view of the river, but if you're far from the bar there is... More

After just arriving in Laos we went for a walk and came across the bamboo bridge lit up with lights over a river so decided to take a walk across to see what was there. We ended up having dinner sat down on cushion, it was a very cosy and chilled atmosphere. The food was of a high quality and... More

Didn't stay here but had lunch overlooking the river. If you sit at one of the black, ceramic tables you can have a fire pit in the centre and cook your on Laos style fondue, it's 70,000 kip which is about £5.75 and that's for two people sharing. You get more than enough food and your waiter will give you... More

I absolutley loved this place. The atmosphere was perfect as we sat around the table playing a game from their game menu. The place its self is beautiful. From what Ive heard a big part of the restaurant is buildt by travellers who stayed at dyen sabai for free in exchange for work. The background music was good and the... More

Went here a number of times while we were in LP. There's nothing better than chilling on the leafy deck drinking a cold Beerlao on a hot day. The staff are really friendly and the food is amazing - the tofu hotpot was the best thing I ate in Laos. I can also recommend the breakfast omelettes, the pumpkin and... More

The setting is lovely, the food very good and it's priced quite reasonably. I see in the reviews that others have complained about slow service but on our two visits we never had any problems. Crossing on the seasonal bamboo bridge is fun but not a good idea for anyone with mobility issues. There are steep, uneven stairs on both... More

After reading about Dyen Sabai in Lonely Planet, I decided I had to visit it. I loved the setting on the hill! Words can't describe it, so just go and see it for yourself! If the bamboo bridge is gone, they provide a boat to get across the river which is free (although, we always gave a small tip). My... More

I really enjoyed this place, the food was great at the atmosphere was beautiful. To get here you cross the bamboo bridge at it is on your left at the top of the stairs. We tried a variety of dishes, but most memorable was the fondue with pork. You cook your meat and vegetables over a fire at your table... More
