Particularly interesting are the various theme culinary experiences called Lao Feasts and Traditional Luang Prabang Meal, in which you join other diners at a communal table and share a set table comprising various main courses and side dishes, while the staff members provide you with additional information about each dish and how to enjoy the meal Lao style. These feasts are very popular, so it’s a good idea to make advance reservations.

For the more adventurous, try The Adventurous Lao Gourmet experience, a degustation-style menu that covers exotic tastes and textures not found in restaurants. The drinks menu covers a range of refreshing fruit juices, herbal drinks, fruit teas, custom-made liquors (the restaurant’s own recipe) and Beer Lao.
