We ate here several evenings during our stay. They are closed on Sunday evening for dinner. If you can't make up your mind what to have, they offer several inclusive menu options where they serve a good range of Lao choices for you to sample,...More

We found the food abundant but not great. The setting is right on the street so you get a sense of the vibrancy of Luang Prabang. As typical of most of the restaurants we visited, the portions are immense. I would recommend staying away from...More

You need to book for your evening meals - we were lucky as we turned up at 5.30 after a long day with no lunch so they seated us and advised us that we needed to finish at 7.30 before the table booking was due...More

Hi Sanfrankate. Sadly, you've missed the transport that takes people from the restaurant to our lakeside cooking school. So it's not really possible to join the class after it has started. It's unfortunate you didn't phone... More
