Came here at around 6pm and there was a table free, but we were ignored rather than seated at the table. Followed by some people pushing past and sitting down. Maybe they had a reservation but I still thought it was rude for the staff to ignore us. Luckily another table became available almost immediately. We were then left for... More

A simple small eatery - nothing fancy but good Lao food. I went twice as I had to go back and have the sausage - had the duck the first time. I wanted to go back again to have the fish, but it was shut. They are moving location very shortly to a larger place. Probably needed as both nights... More

When you are passing along this rather dark lane of Luang Prabang towards the Mekong river, you may tend not to notice this place, Cafe Toui. Very tiny discreet spot with only 9 tables, it does not have the fancy set up as what so called 'cafe'. A homy feeling embraces you instantly, welcomed by the big smile of Toui,... More

Was rated best place for dinner in Luang Prabang and was just round corner from our hotel- we had the Laos family style dining menu which basically involved the owner bringing out dishes until we could eat no more - our favourites were the chicken Lapp and the pumpkin curry - owner and staff were friendly and helpful

Ate here twice as it was so good despite being spoilt for choice in LP. Freshly prepared local food served with panache. Very reasonable prices

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and it is worth the hype! Delicious local fare served by friendly staff, Cafe Toui is perfect for an authentic meal in Luang Prabang. The complimentary table snack of dried banana and black mushroom with lemongrass is delightful. Perhaps a little overwhelmed by its popularity, come with a gentle spirit but hungry... More

We went back a number of times during our stay in Luang Prabang. The food was amongst the best we had in Laos and the chef was skilled at introducing subtle and creative flourishes to traditional local dishes. This venue is aimed at visitors, so don't expect local prices, but overall the prices were fair. Try the Laos Family Dinner... More

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.
