Excellent traditional Laotian food in a chilled environment. Remember this is Laos. Life is slow. Everything is slowed down. Enjoy it. We did and will be back many times. Thank you team Toui 🙏🏻

This was our second visit to Luang Prabang, having been 3 years previously. The dining landscape had changed a fair bit by Laos standards so it seems the town is on "the move". Often increased interest in a town such as this leads to a proliferation of "touristy" establishments, but thankfully we discovered many new and great culinary experiences. Nothing,... More

Nice, small restaurant. I was attracted by the sign outside, claiming that they do not use MSG and microwave. I had the "Today's special", which was shrimps in chili and garlic. Very tasteful and flavorful. They serve a free snack, which was from bananaleaves with sesame seeds. Paid 50000 for the main course and 16000 for a large beer.

We came here many times during our stay and every time had a fantastic dinner! The owners are super nice! They've accommodated our special requests when it came to food preparation (they've made all dishes vegan for us - including papaya salad; although most of their vegetarian dishes are already vegan). The food's quality is very high and everything is... More

Food here is good but the price is higher than the normal food in Luang Prabang. Many tourists and place is small.

A lovely man welcome you with a great smile when you enter the restaurant, the menu is varied, I had a 3 course dinner, and everything was good and tasty ! And for a cheap price as well, the staff is really friendly, our server (might be the owner) was one of the nicest people we met in Luang Prabang,... More

Luang Prabang does not lack excellent restaurants, we have eaten superbly well all week, and Cafe Toui is in our top three. We paid our second and, sadly, final visit this evening. The food is delicious, the staff delightful, and the prices very reasonable. Incidentally, the "abnoxious" expat mentioned in a previous review is not, I think, the owner. He... More

We stopped by to have some local food and all the tables had reserved signs on them. A very nice and friendly lady told us if we were finished in an hour (before the existing reservation) we could be seated. The food was very good and the place was clean. The only problem was that across from us, holding court,... More

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.
