This is a very popular restaurant. Lovely presentation of Laotian food. Not all flavours suited our palette however. Great service, very attentive wait staff. Best to book as many people are turned away.

A great variety of food and wonderful fruit smoothies are on their menu. We were here with our extended family and liked it so much we went back two days later.

We walked here from Xiengthong temple (not so far, taking some photos on the way here) My family were satisfied, so was I. I bought the bamboo straws as souvenir since it was served with my mom's lemon grass juice :)

We didn’t find it so special but it wasn’t bad. For the same money there are other better places to go

Our first lunch. This restaurant also runs cooking classes. Truly Laotian food. Either you like it or you don’t. Some people love it. For me, it was so so.

Traditional Laotian food. We had the “five bites” and it was a great sampler of traditional food. Make sure you have a reservation!! They were turning people away (and it was low season).

Great local food and service was excellent. The restaurant is always packed every evening so booking ahead is advised. I tried a tamarind cooler drink for the first time and loved it.

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

Hi Ryan, we have a number of dishes that are naturally gluten free, and several that can be customised to be prepared without soy sauce (which in a Lao menu is the main offender). Our Senior Staff should be able to guide you... More
