Good project which helps the local people.
They support the locals in Luang Namtha try the reduce garbage (they use straws from bamboo and textile issues).
They don't have so much vegan options. We tried the vegan burger and it was quite good. In the afternoon they make also pizza in a wood oven.

Pros: good project, eco-friendly, delicious
Cons: expensive, less vegan options

Great food, but isn't local.

This place is a veggie haven. I only wish it could provide local cuisine to the quality of it's western dishes. Something Lao is lacking in general outside Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

Pros: Good options, Great food, Nice people
Cons: Expensive, Western food
