We had Jeow with mushrooms and chili as well as the spring rolls, both dishes were excellent. Having seen what other customers had on their plates though I guess I have to be back trying the menu entire.

We had stir fried rice noodles with beef and sticky rice with fish here. Prices were reasonable in comparison with the quality of the food. A must go to when in Luang Namtha

The food here was excellent and I was extremely happy that it was vegetarian! The restaurant is outdoors which I loved and they was a homey feel to it. We came quite late and maybe that's why I always had to go towards the kitchen to get their attention. However they were always happy to help right away. There we... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food here, both dinners. The fried rice (20,000 k) was buttery and savoury, and the chicken dish we had was very tasty as well. The service was on point as we were served chilis on request. It's easy to miss since it's down an alley from the main road but look for it if you want... More

We took the Rattan & Banana Flower soup and the Jeow (Tomato, Peanut, Eggplant - adding 5 for extra one). Both were amazing and special! Good service and smiling faces. Recommended!

Minority Cafe is authentic and has the best Laotian food ever, for reasonable prices. Sometimes it takes a bit longer but it's worth it!

I had the coconut soup here and couldn't taste any coconut. Pretty expensive for being so bland! The staff was nice, but there wasn't anything special about the place. The floor creaks and shakes any time someone walks on it, so it was hard to journal while sitting there!
