“Great fun and good food”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

We walked along the cafe strip on the river and were immediately attracted to this hive of activity, as opposed to the more upmarket and expensive places like tamarind. Here we cooked out own noodle soup on a charcoal BBQ on our table, dinner for two wad 50,000 kip plus beer, service was attentive by all the family, we went here twice during our stay, tip, don't be in a hurry to eat the soup, let the floors develop.

“Best value and food!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

We were diligently stopping at nearly every restaurant we passed, checking menus and prices...trying to decide on our next meal. We were immediately drawn in by the 'barbecue soup' here. We decided to have a seat and were delighted to enjoy a platter of mixed meats, veggies, and soup for only 50,000 kip for the two of us! It was perfect for our budget and our bellies.

“One of my favourite meals in LP”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This is a great way to eat in Luang Prabang. If you are sensitive to gastro bugs, the benefit of this is that you cook the meat and vegetables right there and then on the table - no chance for the bugs to survive! It is all very fresh and healthy. The owner is super friendly, speaks English and delights in showing people how to "dad sin". Highly recommended!

“BBQ Soup - a delicious meal and great entertainment”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We had BBQ soup at the Khem Khan Sin Dad beside the Nam Khan (Khan River) on three of the five nights we were in Luang Prabang in early August. The first two times we had the selection of meats and the last time had the seafood. The food was delicious and unfortunately we didn’t try any of the other options, which included hot pot and noodle dishes. Cooking the meat and the soup is an entertainment in its own right. Just buy a Lao beer and enjoy.
There were a lot of locals but also quite a few tourists. The place is usually packed but a table cleared quickly each time we went there. Don’t arrive late as they close the kitchen when the food meat and seafood runs out. They were out of seafood by 8.00pm on the second night we were there.

“Fantastic and super cheap!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We spotted this place not far from out hotel filled with locals! We sats down and decided on the chicken they filled our little coal pit in the middle of the table with hot coal and brought us the metal BBQ tray which fits easily on top then it's all you! They showed us how to start filling the soup ring with broth and adding cracked egg and greens all the while cooking your meat on top! We copied the locals and had a fantastic night! All condiments and drinks plus to BBQ totalled to $10!! It was brilliant and tasted awesome! Fantastic experience highly recommend you try!
