We stopped here for lunch and the food was really traditional, shame we didn't have time to come back for dinner.

Restuarant locate by Nam Khan river, not too difficult to find out.
Foods are quiet various. Even all is Lao foods but the taste is not too Lao, so foriegner can eat and like them easily.
Staffs are very nice and they can explain about the foods very well. So they will tell you how to eat like local

We stopped by Tamarind on our last night in Luang Prabang and it did not disappoint.

We ordered the set dinner per person, and was treated to a medley of Lao dishes like Grilled Buffalo, Chicken in Lemongrass, and so on.

The waiters were amicable and explained what we were eating and the significance of them very well.

Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a crash course in Lao food.

I had been drinking Lao coffee for 10 days (it's okay) but needed a pick me up and a slice of home. This was it. Don't forget to take a pound of local beans home.

We dined here on our second night in Luang Prabang. Having read many reviews and tried a more home-styled restaurant on the first night, we had high expectations of Tamarind. It did not disappoint. We had the Barbequed Buffalo Meat, Steamed fish with herbs in banana leaf and stir-fried long beans. We were a little apprehensive about ordering buffalo meat but it turned out to be very tender and flavorful. A point to note about the menu...it has lots of information about Laos, Lao food and how Tamarind Restaurant came about. Makes for interesting reading while you wait for your foods!
