We were surprised when we entered the place, we sat by the fire and ordered a traditional Lao food which tasted amazing. The staff were very polite with great english. They also served a welcome drink. Definitely coming back

After our first dinner was a delicious success we returned again a second night and I'm happy to say it was just as good. We both got different things each night and they were all yummy! The restaurants menu is even a good read. They had put alot of humour and quotes in it which was a nice change from... More

It doesn't look much from the outside, but go up to the top of the restaurant and it's lovely for a drink. The food looked good, but we didn't eat here. They had an open fire which we sat around. Very atmospheric.

I kept coming back to Lao Lao Garden during my stay in Luang Prabang. The candle-lit garden offers many intimate nooks and is perfect for a meal or some drinks. Especially the deep fried vegetables and Luang Prabang signature dish 'or lam' are highly recommended. The menu gives enlightening information about Lao culture, and the staff provided valuable details about... More

I may have just been at an off night but the local is very dark and very very touristy. I waited for over an hour for my order and it only came when I finally asked for the check, by this time my mind was made up and I would not have been able to enjoy my dinner. I paid... More

My friend and I loved the look of this place as soon as we walked by - really nice atmosphere with hanging lights and the multi level seating. We shared the vegetarian BBQ which was so delicious and such a great experience! The servers show you how to cook your food and the rest is up to you. There is... More

Great to look at but terrible for food the service was so slow. Waited 1hr30 for 2 meals both were cold and tiny portions when they did arrive. Ordered drinks that never came and then when the bill came we were hugely overcharged for 5 drinks we never had.

The place looks really nice, I'll give it that. But the food was horrible. It was just meant to be noodles with satay sauce, surely it cant be that hard to get right...the satay did not look appealing at all and didn't even taste like satay and the noodles were in a puddle of water. Not to mention there were... More
