. The restaurant was touted as the best Lao food in town and the rumors were true – the service was also very good although the restaurant was very crowded at dinner and we snatched the last table on the balcony.
Don't miss this restaurant for dinner when you are in Luang Prabang.

We are so happy to find this restaurant, right across from Villa Santi away from the market. The service is great, they eagerly welcome you and make sure your water glass is filled at all times. They speak some English and are happy to chat and practice with you so take a moment and talk to them.

We tried 4 restaurants in L.P. and this is the best, tasty food and served hot which is important to us. Their dessert fried banana with local honey is really delicious.

Tried to get a table upstairs on the balcony, it is so nice to look out the street while enjoying your dinner with a breeze.

We stopped to use the wifi and get a soup and ended up staying for a while and getting a baguette. The soup was good and came out quickly.

Our guide suggested this restaurant as an excellent example of Lao cuisine. He was right. The food was wonderful. 4 of my 6 travelling companions chose Lao cuisine, while our 2 older companions chose pasta. Regardless of the food choices, the dishes were fantastic. Service was good, and the staff very friendly. Fish in lemongrass was probably a highlight. A beautiful restaurant and one to be recommended.
