Having an early reservation to this place is highly recommended as it's crowded at night time with scrumptious food being served at acceptable price range.

Visited twice and will return again if ever in LP. Service is great, food is quality, view is nice. Was there in the "winter" months so eating hotpot was perfect. Not sure if it would feel as cozy and comfortable during the hot season though.

Across the bamboo bridge is a restaurant that has amazing views and interesting food if you like to try new things. It's all very relaxed sitting eating chatting and playing one of their selection of games. Great experience. Highly recommended.

A 5 minute walk from the old quarter across the bamboo bridge (dry months). Comfy on the floor seating overlooking the river, good food, nice service and chilled Lao beer - a good way to spend the afternoon!

This is a set of 'rooms' in the local style perched on stilts above the banks of the Namkhan river on the other side from the old town. To get to it, you have to walk across the bamboo bridge from the old town (small charge for that, but an experience in itself, but only in the dry season until... More

We walked over the bamboo bridge to have lunch at this restaurant. It is nestled in the forest overlooking the Mekong River which creates a cool, relaxing atmosphere for spending time relaxing and having a meal. Their mint shake is one of my favorite drinks of all time! We had the Lao fondue (comparable to the Chinese steamboat) and liked... More

I really fell in love with this restaurant for its setting, its culinary quality and the friendliness of Nathalie and her waiters. Time stops at the Dyen sabai. I invite you to taste Lao fondue and green curry. Finish your meal with local alcohol ... Lao Lao

Dyen Sabai offers Lao typical food. From November to August, we offer breakfast. We also have a nice selection of desert (foreigner sweet.. sorry the Laotians don't eat that much sweet!!) We also, have happy hour from noon to 7 pm, 2 cocktails for the price of one, on selected cocktails. You can reach us with a bamboo bridge (in dry season) (there is a fee for the bamboo bridge of 5,000 kips from 8 am to 8 pm, after this the bamboo bridge is free). We also do free boat from noon to closing when the bamboo bridge is not there (rainy season only)
