We arrived at 5pm travelling with 2 children, Despite all tables having a reserved sign on them - they allowed us to sit as long as we were out by 7pm which was no problem.

They have a great range of healthy dishes for toddlers as well which was perfect. Our toddler tried the majority of non spicey food.

We will be heading back prior to leaving LP.

Thanks

The food so good to try. But not family with young children.
My husband is a chef. So curious with the local dish here also have cooking class. We just comment about the pork bamboo sate. Actually the pork meet not marinate enough. Need more longer to get the taste on the pork meet,
Mostly all good to try. Love small restaurant in Luang Prabang. Better you book before you coming.

Amazing food with a difference traditional Lao cuisine with a twist. So much care is taken with the ingredients and the staff are all very helpful at explaining the dishes to you. Set in beautiful old building beside the river makes for a wonderful food experience. Booking is a must closed Sundays not to be missed.

We went for dinner at The Tamarind restaurant in Luang Prabang as we had already booked a day at their cooking course with our 2 boys (11 and 8) and wanted a little sneaky look at what we were getting into.
I loved the symbiotic atmosphere, wonderful explanations about Lao cuisine which helped diffuse a few potential challenges and gave us the opportunity to try things we wouldn't have otherwise.
Delicious dinner!
We loved the cooking course the next day too, highly recommended, but that is a different story.
