Once walking in to the venue, fell in love with in. It offers tiered seating. Really friendly staff. Be sure you visit here for food or drinks!

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

I immediately fell in love with this place when we went for a night cap. So quaint and relaxing. Lots of pretty lights and lanterns. Chilled out music. Comfortable seating. Good selection of drinks. They also serve food here but we didn't eat here so unable to comment. I would definitely visit again and recommended you do to!

5 years ago was my first time at the Lao Lao Garden and now I was back. What did I get 5 years ago: A mouth watering Burger thanks to its awesome waterbuffalo meat patty. That burger was so good, I thought about it nearly everytime I had another Burger. I will probably tell my grand children of it (not... More

It is really established like a garden, I was even able to enjoy live music, but the service was really bad! I waited for more than an hour despite several requests... and it was only a burger with fries (which was not even good). Again I had to wait for my drink, remind the staff. Except for one waiter all... More

We came here for dinner. Ordered a large beer and started drinking. We ordered dinner withing minutes of arriving and waited. And waited. 20 minutes after ordering, the waiter came by and told me that they did not have the dish that I ordered. I chose something else. 20 minutes after that, the waiter came over and asked my dinner... More
