Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had dinner here twice whilst in Luang Prabang. It was a 5 minute walk from out hotel and just off a main road. The food is really good and well priced and good selection of smoothies and beers. We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere...and would definitely go back. Great service, friendly staff and good food - it ticks all our boxes.More

Lovely informal restaurant tucked away off a main street in Luang Prabang, favoured by locals and expats, and offering well-cooked dishes with an accent on Laotian cuisine. The English-speaking owner converses with all his clients, and will happily phone for a taxi or your hotel...shuttle.More

The food here is FANTASTIC! Please don't pay over the top prices at 3 Nagas but come here instead. Food was far better. The bananas with coffee dessert is the best in the whole wide world😋 Lovely waiters who kindly have us a shot of...whiskey tonight as a freebie. I think because we were one of the only clients who showed a bit of humility and enthusiasm and respect for them. Thank you Bamboo Garden Restaurant; we shall miss you🥰More

The place is a family runned business and located in a small street opposite of the Vat Viscunnarati. We arrived at 6:30 pm and the place was more or less packed 30 min after opening. We ordered the food and two draft beer . We...got it 3 min later ! The server was not understanding any word of english and brought two bottles of dark beer. The food was overcooked and not fresh prepared , but the portion was big. The concept of the place is maximize turnover. The owner is seating individuals together on a bigger table. I like this concept , but the (mostly millenials ) guests don’t talk to each other they look into their phones with earplugs. The place takes Credit cards with a normal 2.5 % surcharge.More

We saw a queue whilst eating at a nearby place so thought it must he good. We tried a couple times but it was busy. We finally got a table on our 3rd night and we had lovely meals for a good price. Great service...and a relaxing vibe. There wete 2 tables of 4 by us thay had finished eating AND drinking when we sat down. One group of women were playing a game. When we finished our meal we could see there was a queue for tables so paid up and left. Shame others are so selfish and ignorant to sit using the tables without even ordering another drink!More
