Worth the effort to find
What we say:
Sister to the popular restaurant in Luang Prabang, Tamnak Lao restaurant in Vientiane is a little harder to find, though well worth it.
In operation since 1993, it's become a local favourite and serves authentic Lao cuisine in a restored colonial house and garden. Try the six-course tasting menu to try classic Lao dishes or order a la carte for larger portions of laap with fresh herbs, Mekong fish cooked in coconut milk, spicy seafood salads, sun-dried beef, and some vegetarian options.
The large, elegant restaurant is popular with tour groups and they can organise cultural shows and baci (string) ceremonies on request.
