Tasty and fresh

Really nice owner, very nice pasta with olives and very fresh made risotto.
Definately worth the trip. When you do the Vally Route by bicycle you drive by this very nice restaurant.

Pros: Vegan options, Lovely and tasty pasta, Fresh made risotti( vegan on request)

Cons: Bit out of the way, worth while!!

Great vegan and gluten free food

Really loved this place, the owner had to move because of Covid so now it is 15 min from the center but so so worth walk! She is the loveliest lady, offered even to take us back by scooter!
So many vegan options, including Salads, pasta, Pizza, Sandwiches, Burrito and Breakfast!
Open everyday from 10am-23pm!
Great music, there is even karaoke!
Wish we would have discovered this sooner!

Pros: Many vegan options , Gluten free options

Great breakfast place!

A cosy, comfortable, and friendly little place! Nicely decorated and good music. A bit pricey, but very priceworthy.

We've had the 'Big vegan breakfast' (good and filling), the rice porridge (different but very nice!), and the tofu/mushroom/hummus sandwich (delicious and well-balanced). Pictures are in the gallery. The teapot (we tried ginger and mint, both terrific) for 10,000 kip is a must! Lasts forever.

The Wifi password is greatpizza.

Pros: Cosy and comfortable, priceworthy, no-smoke

Cons: Leather furniture

good project, good food, bus less vegan options...

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

Nice place

There was a decent selection of veg/vegan food here, including salads, sandwiches, pasta and pizza (one had no cheese). The portions were not too big and the price was relatively expensive (typical tourist pricing). The place was nice though, with couches to relax on and the best wifi in the city. It is a nice place to get a pizza or drink and hang out with friends or check your emails. If this type of place is what your looking for, they have some good menu options.

Pros: Ambiance, Food, Location

Cons: Price, Selection

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
