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.

We tried a selection of restaurants in Luang Prabang during our 5 night stay. Café Toui was our favourite by a mile. The food was tasty, hot and well presented. It had a lovely, romantic ambience and the service was prompt and charming. Café Toui is tucked out of the way down a side street, which may have been the reason that there was only one other table of diners. It is well worth seeking this restaurant out - it really is a little gem.

My family had lunch and/or dinner here every day during our stay in Luang Prabang. We tried other restaurants, but they didn't come close to food, service and atmosphere. Cafe Toui is a small, family owned restaurant. As far as we could tell there was one waitress and one cook...brother and sister. All dishes are made to order so be patient because it's well worth the wait. Our favorite dishes were the pumpkin curry, sticky rice, LP sausages and the Mok pa (steamed fish with banana flower) and pork laab. Oh how I wish I had some right now. All of these dishes with beer came to about $30 U.S. Each day we left full, satisfied and full of anticipation about what we would eat the next day! Best place in Luang Prabang hands down!!

Since moving to Luang Prabang, I have eaten many times at Café Toui and it is consistently good. It is excellent value for the quality of the food, and the atmosphere is very nice - a cosy intimate setting with rich red walls, stencilled with gold boddhi trees, and soft ambient music in the background. My favourite dishes are the pumpkin curry, stir fry pork and eggplant, chicken laap, and the steamed fish in banana leaf. As good as any of the higher end restaurants in my opinion and not nearly as expensive. Service can be a bit slow when it's busy as there is only one chef (the lovely Lao owner, Mr Toui) but it is worth the wait. The restaurant is off the main street in Ban Xieng Mouane, opposite the Institut Francais.
