“Spicy but good”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The Larp Pha (local fish salad) was (on request) pretty spicy but delicious. Maybe they have used a little too much salt for the meal and the steamed rice. The waiters very very attentive and provided water at Amy time. I have paid 50000 Kip for the meal plus rice for 7000 Kip. All in all recommendable.

“Typical Lao great food.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We ate at Tamnak Lao 4 times whilst in Luang Prabang and always loved it!
The food is typically Lao, fresh and flavoursome.
The location is lovely at the quiet end of the main street, sitting downstairs or upstairs on the balconies is delightful.
The staff are lovely, young energetic, chaotic, full of life, in fact Lao!
I always find it hard to review a restaurant, the days we ate it was great, but like all food to be really good sometimes you have to be mediocre, but if they ever are so the sheer joy of the staff will make it special!

“Best dinner we had in LP”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Had a wonderful dinner here after a disappointing dinner the previous night at 3 Nagas. Authentic food that (while still expensive by Laotian standards) was tasty, flavorful and fresh. Service was informal but extremely pleasant and really enjoyed our seat on the front verandah.

“Tasty authentic Lao food, great service, lovely atmosphere and balcony”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Love Tamnak Lao restaurant!! It is a long time institution in Luang Prabang and one I have always enjoyed!. The food is authentically flavoured and the menu has many original Lao dishes. The staff are cheerful and well-trained offering service with a smile and there is a lovely little balcony to watch life in Luang Prabang go by - particularly nice in the evenings for an aperitif!

Prices are also very reasonable for the quality of the restaurant and food. I had a fantastic birthday celebration there last November 2012 with family and friends and the owner and staff really spoilt me with a beautiful banquet and cake. I was able to organise this all ahead of my trip and everything went very smoothly! And my party of 17 loved it!
