“Excellent food”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

There is a great menu selection, both Laos and Western.
There were 15 of us for our booking so we had the chance to taste many dishes - all were good and all small serves - so good for the not so big eaters.
The service was a little slow, but then there were 15 of us and another big group nearby, so it was to be expected.

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Tamnak Lao Restaurant is right oppposite the Villa Santi Hotel we were staying at and on the main street but down from the busy night market area. We were drawn to the old French colonial facade and the menu looked good. So good we returned a second time. We ate inside upstairs the first time but even better the second time ate on the balcony. Very good Lao food, as another reviewer mentioned, excellent chicken laab and spring rolls. The second visit we had the set Lao menu - very generous and quite delicious. Lovely staff. Highly recommended.

“excellent Laotian Food in beautiful setting”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

at theTamnak Lao we got by far the best LOtian Fod in town. service is friendly and helpful. the dishes are of high quality and very tasty, they also do not use too much oil. try the sea weed, the fresh spring rolls and the fried bambo shoots. The view onto the lively street and the colonial
building across the street from the balcony upstairs alone is worth a visit. they alos run a cooking school and some worthwhile projects.

“Excellent Authentic Lao Food!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Decently priced, well-staffed, and very good service. The food was some of the best we had in Laos. Try the brown bean sticky rice: huge serving and simply delicious! Sit on the front porch for a little peace and quiet --- busy, hectic and noisy interior.
