Description: We use authentic delicious western food to empower the local community. Food you're craving from home with a combination of fresh local ingredients and imported specials such as real cheese, bacon, olives from our nearest supermarket 7 hours and an international border crossing away. We have woodfired pizzas, Italian pastas and risottos, big breakfasts, awesome sandwiches, real espresso and top notch cocktails. All our staff are local ethnic minority people with no prior English language, food preparation or customer service skills. They come to work with us to learn English and how to work in the hospitality industry. Our profit is donated to the Luang Namtha Books In Schools program to increase the number of textbooks in the local schools from the current 1 per 3 students to everyone having their own set of textbooks. So far we've donated over 2,800 textbooks to local students. Come in to our training restaurant to help us support northern Laos!

This restaurant is really good!
A very good experience, we went there twice already and every meal we have ordered was great and tasty.
Their concept is ecology, they don’t sell plastic water bottles but they refill your bottles for free!! Even the straw of the shakes made from bamboo (:
Many many vegan and vegetarian options, also in the desserts manu!
In the morning the vibe is very calm and in the evening it’s a really cool place to drink something, they also have happy hour!
They make really good pizza in a wood fired oven.
The staff are kind and English speaking,
They are on the main road.
Just go!!

Free water, no plastic or straws distributed. Non-profit who give back to local shools. A little bit pricier than other places, but delicious food and drink. Breakfast burritos rock!!!!

Luang Namtha doesn’t have the biggest array of restaurants - so this place offers a nice alternative to rice etc. The pizza’s are baked in a wood fire oven. However they do make them one at a time meaning it comes out jaggard. Do offer a nice GandT though.

We ate breakfast here and dinner and cocktails and all the food was delicious.
The service was great, however they closed at 4pm one day and didn’t open that evening or the next day all day without any signs or warning and the website stated they were open.
I think that training local people in hospitality is a great principle, but closing without any advice on when would next be open seems strange.
More expensive than other places to eat in Luang Namtha but western food done really well. Small portions.
