We ate there two nights, having the the gluten free pizza with added cheese, friendly service if not lacking slightly in english skills, but hay you are in Laos, and they do try to help when they can put their mobiles down.

Don't judge, it's been many days of noodles and veggies I didn't recognize and zero English, and I'm so glad I did it. BUT, there is something so helpful about ordering a pizza and a coke and getting both exactly as you'd expect :) When interesting is constant, boring is sometimes desirable. Food was great. Good service with a smile... More

When I visited there were no other customers so no ambience but the food was good and beer cold. Wifi would not connect for me and they refused to reset because it worked for the staff so in their mind nothing was wrong. Possibly a cool place to hangout if you were a group.

Food was terrific, i ate a few things here including the pizza which was very nice. Their drinks were good and it seemed to be a great place to meet and share travel stories with others. They seem to market well which can benefit the customer. Look online or when you arrive for specials including drink specials which is good... More

If you have been in a South East Asia for a while and are missing western food, stop here! I thoroughly enjoyed my Spanish style wrap with fresh ingredients. The BLT was thoroughly enjoyed by my partner. All washed down with a cold glass of beer. Comfortable seating which makes a welcome change from tiny plastic chairs. Dinner was fantastic... More

Quality of the food was outstanding, I was very pleased with my veggie big breakfast and found it to be good value for money. This is a training restaurant that supports local schools and the staff come from rural ethnic minority tribes to learn English and cooking skills. They also make a point of being environmentally friendly and provide free... More

We only stopped by for a beer, so I cannot comment on the food. But there is a proper Pizza oven which suggests that things are cooked well. it is very comfortable and informal, with lots of plants.. which make for a good good feeling. Staff seemed very competent and friendly.

Description
We use authentic delicious western food to empower the local community. Food you're craving from home with a combination of fresh local ingredients and imported specials such as real cheese, bacon, olives from our nearest supermarket 7 hours and an international border crossing away. We have woodfired pizzas, Italian pastas and risottos, big breakfasts, awesome sandwiches, real espresso and top notch cocktails. All our staff are local ethnic minority people with no prior English language, food preparation or customer service skills. They come to work with us to learn English and how to work in the hospitality industry. Our profit is donated to the Luang Namtha Books In Schools program to increase the number of textbooks in the local schools from the current 1 per 3 students to everyone having their own set of textbooks. So far we've donated over 2,800 textbooks to local students. Come in to our training restaurant to help us support northern Laos!
