Good location, it’s a family business and they are super nice. Good staff and very good soups, especially the red curry one. The best we’ve been in Luang Prabang. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to eat real Lao food!More

Nice little restaurant with good Lao food at reasonable prices. Quiet location, just a few minutes walking off the main road, ideal for a bite after visiting Phousi Hill.

Pha Kao Lao is considered one of the best cheap eats in Luang Prabang, so I stopped there for lunch after climbing up Phu Si. It's on the other side of the hill, but worth the few minutes' walk to get there. I had the...More
