“A sophisticated experience by a lotus pond”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

We went during the day so there was no show. In fact we were the only customers until two other people arrived towards the end.
We enjoyed it. The food was good and the service was fine.
The best part was the quiet atmosphere and the roomy outdoor eating area by the large pond. Luang Prabang is surprisingly dirty and noisy so it was sweet to walk away from it all for an hour or so. The prices were decent too. No mosquitos and no flies. Flies are a problem throughout the restaurant scene in LP. But mercifully there were none here.
Oh, and the washroom was modern and clean and roomy and didn't smell. Always a bonus.

“Great pictures”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

The place is very pretty with a beautiful lake that provides great pictures. The cultural show is quite interesting (although not my favorite style) and the service is very good. It offers typical food from Laos. If you wait for something more agitated this is not the most appropriate place. For a quiet evening with friends or the wife, is a good option.

“Lao Dining At its Best”
Reviewed March 4, 2011

Peaceful location in the heart of Luang Prabang, yummy Lao food, good service.
Dance and music performance are not overwhelming like often in Asia.
Perfect place to recover after a busy day visiting Luang Prabang or catching up with friends near the small lake under the coconut trees.

“Our favourite restaurant in Luang Prabang”
Reviewed February 4, 2011

Such good value for fantastic food and wonderful surroundings. Lao music and dance Monday to Saturday on a stage in the middle of lily pond surrounded by coconut trees. You don't need to have the advertised 25$ meal and floor show - just walk in and you eat from the menu and see the show anyway.
