Description: Dyen Sabai offers Lao typical food. From November to August, we offer breakfast. We also have a nice selection of desert (foreigner sweet.. sorry the Laotians don't eat that much sweet!!) We also, have happy hour from noon to 7 pm, 2 cocktails for the price of one, on selected cocktails. You can reach us with a bamboo bridge (in dry season) (there is a fee for the bamboo bridge of 5,000 kips from 8 am to 8 pm, after this the bamboo bridge is free). We also do free boat from noon to closing when the bamboo bridge is not there (rainy season only)

“Great for Families - Try the Fondu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We had our first meal in Luang Prabang here after being recommended to go there by our hotel. It lived up to the hype. Loved crossing over the bamboo bridge to get there and the fondu was really fun and yummy!! No rush to leave as they have games to play and its all so relaxed.
Dont miss this one especially if you have children.

“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The eggplant appetizer was delicious.
Squid with peppers is not for the faint of heart--it's served on a bed of sliced chilis.

“Amazing ambiance in the evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Pricey for Luang Prabang, but well worth it! Amazing ambiance in the evening is unbelievable - frogs and cicadas singing in the background. One of the better wine selections we've seen and save room for the Dyen Sabai chocolate treat!!! (Think chocolate lava cake)...

I highly recommend this restaurant... it is fun, great location (you have to walk over the bamboo bridge), the food is yummy, definitely try the Sinbad (a kind of fondue) and the service is superb.

“Overrated but the scenery is great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We visited based on reviews on both tripadvisor and lonley planet. The walk across the bamboo bridge is part of the experience (note you will be charged 5000 kip). We visited at lunchtime and it was initially very quiet but soon filled up. The setting and atmosphere warrants the visit, however the food we found disappointing.
