The set menus they offer are tasty and a great introduction to Lao food. The service is good and a nice touch is the free welcome drink and snack. The sticky rice here is the best we found in Luang Prabang. Definitely would return here.

We have been enjoying a variety of dining experiences in Luang Prabang- and our dinner at Bamboo Tree is right at the top of the list. We had 3 courses, and each one was superb....not ‘very good’, but superb, with delightfully fresh ingredients and creativity....More

A good mix of Lao, Thai and western dishes and good cold Beer Lao. Reasonable prices, Informal setting, outside can be noisy but a good place to stop when you are hungry and not sure of where to eat.

I enjoyed a charming dinner here of spicy minced fish with sticky rice, dessert of fruit in coconut milk and two beers. Price was reasonable 105,000 Kip, that’s $US 12. Two musicians were playing traditional Lao music on the patio, together with the paper lanterns...More
