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.

The restaurant gets very good reviews and for the food it is deserved. The chicken sate on lemongrass skewers were our favourite though there was a great choice of Lao style options to select from. Prices are reasonable though the place is quite small and does not offer the outside dining options available at other restaurants. The only minor negative was the degree of difficulty in placing our orders and asking questions of the wait staff. One of the waiters does seem to struggle with English and did lead to some confusion. I understand it is really difficult for the young staff and my advice is to be patient and keep the order simple. Certainly worth trying if as a couple or small group.

Everything we tried was very good. Maybe not a lot of options if you don't like fish. Serving could be a little bigger for the price they are charging. Overall it was good.

I had two of the best curries of my life here. Do yourself a favor and try the pumpkin curry - it’s exceptional.

At cafe toui you can find great food and great service. The food is really tasty and also the presentation is great. We sent there twice during our short stay in Luang Prabang. It's definitely a place to try if you want to experience the traditional Lao cuisine in a nice setting.

Before we got to Luang Prabang, we already got tip about this fantastic restaurant.and told told us, the Mok Pa---steamed fish wrapped in banana leave is a must. So when we found it was right around from our rental place, we had the first meal in town there, and ordered the fish. during two week stay there, we tried just about all the restaurant in town, this was still the most favored one, we end the last meal there. Had the fish again. the chef is the owner, and a most friendly Aussi manager attend to all English speaking guest's every need.
