We went there to celebrate my birthday. The place is beautiful with this really nice atmosphere. The employees were super nice and the food was good. I had the chicken with curry and sticky coconut rice which was good but too spicy. My friends had a local fish and buffalo steak, and both were good as well. The best part was the drinks. One of the best drinks I had in my life called Lao Parinha (vodka, cucumber, lime, coriander and ground rice). Definately recommend this restaurant.

Fine dining in a peaceful restaurant by a beautiful lily pond. We tried the local dishes presented in innovative ways and it was simply delicious.

Manda translates as mother in Lao. The menu of manda offers classic Lao food with some twists. Spring rolls, noodle soup, stir-fried mushrooms are good accompaniments to the mains such as spare ribs and duck breast in tamarind sauce, examples of fusion dishes. Desserts include baba rum with pineapple and coconut flan are presented dramatically. The presentation is artistic, and the setting is beautiful. To enjoy Manda at its best, visit at night. The dishes are small, tapas seems to be the in things in Luang Prabang these days, so order several for each person at the table to feel satiated.

From food to service to setting, everything was top notch. Standouts were the Choux, coconut rice, and the coconut mocktail.
There was one problem, but I'm still giving them 5 stars because it was an excellent meal--
I think perhaps next time I would ask to be seated under the awning area, because next to the pond under the trees there were a lot of critters crawling around above us. Squeaky critters, if you get my drift. They have some kind of screen in place so they can't get down to the dining area, but they're up there. And one of their droppings fell down on our table. Sorry to be gross, but it was an unwelcome distraction from our very expensive meal.
