We loved the dinner and the cooking class a week later, we were able to appreciate the laotian cuisine and know the ingredients and how to cook with it

We had tried to eat dinner here but went elsewhere when there was a 40 minute wait. So we came for lunch the next day at noon and although they started to get busy, we easily got a table.

We ordered:

Five Bites (comes with sticky rice) - 45,000 KIP
Stuffed Chicken Lemongrass - 50,000 KIP
Large Beer Lao - 15,000 KIP
Lao Iced Coffee - 12,000 KIP

They have sampler plates which lets you try highlights of Laotian food. Five Bites is one of them and is a good way to taste a variety. We enjoyed the food.

We ate there, the lemongrass wrapped chicken is excellent, the staff are friendly. We enjoyed the food so much, I signed up for their cooking school class. That was excellent too. We made three dishes along with the dipping sauce plus one desert.
Gained some idea of Lao cooking.

We ate dinner at the Tamarind on the balcony across from the restaurant. The service was excellent - friendly and helpful, with explanations of local customs accompanying each course.

Best restaurant in Luang Prabang - definitely try the fish in the banana leaf! Would highly recommend to everyone.
