not good food. Not clean premises and toilets dirty. Always busy because the prices are more reasonable than other restaurants on the "night market road".

We stopped by twice. First for lunch, to discover the baguette sandwiches were fantastic; then, to escape the heat on a hot afternoon, sipping coffee. The garden is such a lovely setting, with vines overhead and bamboo and plants all around. It was very crowded at lunch, so word is out! Great little spot.

We ate here tonight, our first night in Luang Prabang. We walked through the markets and then stumbled on this place. My girlfriend is Thai. She ordered Papaya salad, she said it was Laos style, but quite good. She also had some pork, which she enjoyed. I had sweet and sour pork, a fairly uncomplicated dish & it was good.... More

Pictures on the menus was a joke. None of the food that served look a like. THE taste of food were yuck. All Staffs were friendly but incompetent. Once is enough. Huge mistake. I wish I read 1-2 stars reviews before step in.

I came here with my boyfriend as we had just arrived in Luang Prabang and we're starving! We were both lured in by the beautiful entrance and versatile menu however as soon as we sat down we started to regret it. The table was covered in ants, all over the table plates, napkins and after a few minutes our hands... More

Was surprised by some of the reviews on here. The family went here for our evening meal and everything was fine. Service was friendly and quick. Food was good although the portions were a tad small. Would visit again.

Was there for all my dinners. Tasty Laos food. A must try is fried pork with sticky rice. Prices are mid range.

After looking at people's reviews, I gave this restaurant the benefit of doubt and decided to dine here. Not only were the place mats covered in ants, which I refused to have them on the table, a friend found a hair in her meal which instantly made us regret coming to this restaurant. Unfortunately, the food lacked taste and I... More
