Top Laos Restaurant Tips from our Experts

Authentic and Economical: Kimsatcat Korean Restaurant

Sakkaline Rd, Luang Prabang, Laos

Don’t let the cafeteria-like ambiance fool you, Kimsatcat Korean Restaurant is one of Luang Prabang’s best hidden gems. Settle down for a hearty and authentic Korean meal in Laos – a rare opportunity, and each dish replenished as soon as you finish so you never leave hungry! While the menu is not extensive, the many dishes are painstakingly explained by the staff so you can choose your favorites. We recommend the barbecues, or the spicy stews if you’re feeling adventurous.

Mid-range: Tamarind

Kingkitsarath Rd, Luang Prabang, Laos

Set on the banks of the idyllic Nam Khan River, this authentic Laos restaurant boasts delicious tasting platters accompanied by a variety of dips that will have you keep coming back for more. With each dish and levels of spiciness explained while ordering, each dish you ask for will be tailored to your preference. We especially recommend the fish served in banana leaves and the bamboo shoot starters.

High-end: L’Elephant Restaurant

Ban Vat Nong, Kounxoua Road, 06000, Laos

Set past the lush green facade into this charming French establishment and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported into a serene, peaceful ambiance far from the bustle of the city. Undoubtedly plush, this Laos restaurant prides itself on a delicious blend of Laotian-French cuisine, from a sumptuous coq au vin to steaks and plenty of vegetarian options. A word of caution – given the daily footfall at L’Elephant Restaurant, you may need an advance reservation.
