Vegetarian and vegan friendly! The food quality is veeeery good and so is the service. It is quite of a “wild step” for the common western who is not accostumed to the Lao flavors (and asian in general), and I do tend to be quite...More

Walked in without a reservation. They gave me the far end of a big table for which they had a reservation in 1.5 hour. Staff were nice and attentive and spoke good English. Unfortunately, you can’t get the tasting menu if solo but that didn’t...More

Hi Sanfrankate. Sadly, you've missed the transport that takes people from the restaurant to our lakeside cooking school. So it's not really possible to join the class after it has started. It's unfortunate you didn't phone... More
