It took ages before they served us our meal, several other customers had already gone to another nearby restaurant.
The mediocre food, a salad, chicken laap and beef laap, was tasteless. We tried to spice things up with some extra coriander and lemon that we ordered, but to no avail. We did not finish our meals and hurried to the nearby Ban Vat Sene where we had a lovely beef Pho.

I have eaten here several times for lunch over the last few years and always found the food to be very good quality.

At dinner on Christmas eve the three of us arrived early at about 6.45pm and the service was great. However as more people arrived it got very slow. We had to wave to get the desert menu and wave again to place our order. I gave up on asking for the bill and went straight to the cashier.

One of us received his soup & main course at the same time while a spaghetti dish main course took forever to arrive.

Prices were above average but the setting & outlook on to the street or courtyard were a real plus.

They accept Visa & MasterCard but charge in US dollars + a 3% credit card fee which is very high. The best restraurant in Luang Prabang, Blue Lagoon, does not charge a credit card fee at all.

We were tired and hungry when we arrived in Luang Prabang and didn't feel like searching for a restaurant. We walked by this place and although it was empty (not a good sign) we looked at the menu and decided to try it out. Before you read further, let me say that there are better places to eat in Luang Prabang.

The food was not memorable and pricey for the quality and the quantity. We ordered from the Asian menu. The food was bland and barely warm when it arrived at our table. The sticky rice tasted old, like it had been reheated from earlier. The portions were very small.

The service while ok was somewhat weird. We were waited on by three different servers. One of our waiters, who had little else to do hovered around our table for so long, we finally gave him the stink eye so that we could have a private conversation.

We ate outside and were continually bothered by the mosquitoes. The patio dining area is below the street, so if you aren't comfortable having passersby stare down at you while you are eating, better choose an inside table.
