Stopped in for a hearty lunch after visiting a spa down the street. We loved the fresh spring rolls, the chicken laab and coconut chili chicken - and a mango smoothie to wash it all down. Amazing! Favorite restaurant in Luang Prabang so far.

Gluten-free is no problem. I am sure that all of the dishes made in class the day I was there were GF. If you have further questions, email the owner through her website.
