Wonderful atmosphere, tucked back from the road it's very private and intimate! Super authentic and delicious food and the servers are quiet wonderful ladies! The peanut jeow, sauté mushroom, seaweed snack, and sweet and sour fish were stellar! Prices are good as well as portions.

We had Jeow with mushrooms and chili as well as the spring rolls, both dishes were excellent. Having seen what other customers had on their plates though I guess I have to be back trying the menu entire.

We had stir fried rice noodles with beef and sticky rice with fish here. Prices were reasonable in comparison with the quality of the food. A must go to when in Luang Namtha

The food here was excellent and I was extremely happy that it was vegetarian! The restaurant is outdoors which I loved and they was a homey feel to it. We came quite late and maybe that's why I always had to go towards the kitchen...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food here, both dinners. The fried rice (20,000 k) was buttery and savoury, and the chicken dish we had was very tasty as well. The service was on point as we were served chilis on request. It's easy to miss since...More
