Description: Cafe Toui serves magically simple Lao food, prepared to order by Chef Toui. Because of the super abundance of vegetables from surrounding farms and in our local markets, we can offer many interesting vegetarian choices as well as traditional dishes with fish, pork and duck, etc. All with Toui's amazing flavors. We bend a bit from Lao tradition for special desserts. We serve cocktails, beers and some wine.

Cafe Toui was a delightful experience. I tried one of their Price Fix local meals with a carafe of house wine. It was all very good the assortment of very well prepared local dishes was wonderfully and correctly executed. The Flavors were bright and lovely with very fresh ingredients. Its not big so get there early as it gets full when town is busy.
Enjoy!

We arrived randomly in front of Cafe Toui. We were not too excited by the outside but it was very quiet, the menu seemed interesting to get to know the Lao food and the welcome was very friendly. We then decided to stay.

We choose the set menu at 80,000 to discover some Lao specialties. What a surprise! The food was simply delicious, well presented and of good portions. We ordered on the side some more dishes. We also enjoyed very much those a-la-carte dishes.

That was our first time tasting Lao food. We have been lucky to find Toui. We will surely go back.

One minor point was for the chocolate pancake that we ordered as an extra. That was not a smart choice from us. The dessert was not at the level of the Lao food.

Go and taste the food. You will love it. The staff was really nice.

A small café that serves very good breakfasts & dinners. Service is very personal, often by the owner, Toui, himself. They have a great Lao tasting menu.

Located off the main street but worth a visit. Rated well by Lonely Planet.

Cafe Toui is a small restaurant located just off the main strip. We ordered the 80,000 kip trial platter, and enjoyed every bite. It was delicious and very variable. However, the menu was incredibly extensive, and made us wish we had a week more in Luang Prabang to try more of the dishes. We would definitely recommend Cafe Toui.

Tiny little restaurant but the two taster menus we had gave a good selection of the local cuisine. The food kept coming too so impressed with what we got for the 80,000 Kip per person (excluding drinks)
