The price is comparable to European middle class restaurants but it's every dollar worth! We had one of the plates for 2 persons with different styles of Lao food. It was very delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful and are explaining what kind of food they are serving at the moment and how it was made. If you have the chance go there!

The ambiance here is absolutely top notch. Best advice is go for a drink and enjoy the lotus pond and beautiful decor. When it came to dinner, however, despite ordering their "signature dishes", our palates were downright bored. I'm not sure if they just dumb it down too much for westerners or what. But again, fabulous ambiance. Bring bug spray.

We tried to get a table the first night we were in LP but they were fully booked and so we booked dinner for the next evening. The restaurant has a beautiful setting amongst lots of greenery and a large lotus pond, very tranquil although a bit too dark for my taste.

We each had the 420,000 LKP degustation menu which all came beautifully presented. We were told the cooking was authentically Lao and the hormok style fish and buffalo steak seemed so although the desert of puff pastry probably not. Overall, we found there was not much variation in the taste of quite a few dishes, lacking bite would be one way to put it. One of the meat dishes also came without a sauce which we only found out after consuming. Service levels were excellent and price was consummate with meals like this. It was a good meal but perhaps a little shy of expectations.

This restaurant is fabulous, the setting is beautiful, the food & drinks were delicious and the staff were really lovely. I would highly recommend a visit here, beat advice is book a table as it gets fully booked.

We can't say enough about how thrilled we were to have found this restaurant in Luang Prabang. The decor is stunning, every detail has been thought through. The food is not only sensational, but the presentation is absolutely beautiful! I hate to build something up so much, because sometimes people are let down if they expect too much, but this place really delivers. We went 3 times while we were in town. Absolutely delicious. Even the cocktails are terrific! Curry Soup + Curry Chicken were our favs. It's pricey, but worth every penny! Lucky to have a restaurant like this in this little town. Please don't bring small children that are loud here. Maybe for lunch, but definitely not dinner. This place is over the top romantic and such a treat!
