You need to try this special meal. It's really good and very different. All the place is quite beautiful, perfect for couples and friends. The price is very good, we paid LAK 80000 for two.

We spent my last night in Luang Prabang in this lovely restaurant own by a Canadian woman on the other side of the river. After a wonderful walk over the bamboo bridge (no fee in the evening) in the darkness we reached this restaurant. It's on the hill and we managed to change our table to a marble one so... More

After a short but exciting walk accross the bamboo bridge a nice treat awaits. Good food, nice views and a relaxed vibe. Food was nice and well presented and a fair price. PS: No charge to cross the bridge after 6pm but only 60C during the day.

What a night I had here! I loved the adventure of walking over the rickety bamboo bridge in the dark , then the hot pot/bbq (Laos fondue) experience. The food was all delicious, the staff friendly, helpful and wonderful. Even the beers were great price. We just missed happy hour (12-7pm) which looked like it had awesome deals.

We didn't eat here, but stopped in for a few glasses of wine. Very comfortable place to stretch your legs and relax a bit, with a view of the local area/river. Just beyond the bamboo bridge when crossing from LP (town). Menu looked good and we planned to return to eat, but ran out of opportunities.

This restaurant was just around the corner from our guesthouse and right across the bamboo bridge from the main part of town. The atmosphere is superb and the food and drinks and service equally good. If you're staying in the center of town, cross the bridge and treat yourself to a great evening.

Having read the reviews we (a family of five, the youngest 16) went in search of the bamboo bridge across the river in order to take us to the restaurant for dinner. When we arrived we were met by people at the top of the stairs down to the river, who told us that the bridge had been (temporarily) washed... More

Great experience to cross by boat (when there is no bamboo bridge), fare there and back is refunded by restaurant. Have the Laos Fondue - no cheese, but you cook everything in a soup over heat, while BBQ the meat. Recommended for lunch and dinner.

If staying in Luang Prabang this is the place to go for a fun evening. The bamboo bridge is just the start and after a short walk you must have the Laos barbecue- take care to book a specific table as not all have the ability for the hot coals. A great experience and very easy to cook in a... More

This restaurant is just across the bamboo bridge and does a fantastic traditional Laos BBQ - Sin Dad. It is well with the trip across the bridge to visit this restaurant.

Dyen Sabai offers Lao typical food. From November to August, we offer breakfast. We also have a nice selection of desert (foreigner sweet.. sorry the Laotians don't eat that much sweet!!) We also, have happy hour from noon to 7 pm, 2 cocktails for the price of one, on selected cocktails. You can reach us with a bamboo bridge (in dry season) (there is a fee for the bamboo bridge of 5,000 kips from 8 am to 8 pm, after this the bamboo bridge is free). We also do free boat from noon to closing when the bamboo bridge is not there (rainy season only)
