Houay Xai, Houay Xai, Laos

Serves meat, vegan options available. A restaurant and guesthouse run by the Kajsiab Project which was founded to help and educate people in mountain villages. There is a nice terrace with a fireplace. Offers traditional Laotian dishes which are mostly vegetarian/vegan. Directions: Half way up the stair up to the temple, turn left, and go 100 meters.

First Review by samden

Pizza aka raw dough - Edit

The place itself is super cool, would recommend to go for a drink. Not for food. The previous reviews were quite old but the restaurant hasn't improved much from then I'm afraid. Since the Lao food was described as 'not special' I decided to order the 'Vegan pizza'.
The menu says it takes a while because they have high food standards, but the pizza wasn't done yet.
When I ordered I asked for extra vegetables but I only got some broccoli and onion. I was basically eating dough with tomato sauce and onion. Not satisfaying at all!!
When I asked the lady again for extra vegetables she gave me a plate of raw sliced onion which wasn't quite what I meant.

Great hangout, disappointing dinner - Edit

We found this place quite beautiful with a warm and hippielike feeling to it. A lovely place for a drink with a great view and relaxed atmosphere. The herbal tea is good and lasts forever if you get a pot (20,000 kip).

We we're excited to try the 'Vegan family dinner' (30,000 kip) but found it disappointing. A big bowl of rice and three kinds of cooked and similarly seasoned green vegetables. You can have as much as you'd like, but our meal felt very uninspired and unfulfilling.

Pros: Nice view and atmosphere, good cause

Cons: Oven smoke reaches the seating area, no Wifi

Not a normal restaurant - Edit

We followed the directions, otherwise we wouldn't have stumbled across this place. It'a a nice and cozy place, but the "menu" doesn't offer many choices - when I remember correctly it was only a fish dish, a meat dish, and "vegan family meal". So we opted for the latter, which is around 8 PM, and were asked to sit along a table together with other guests and some members of the family. Strange to say, the family members/Laotians disappeared almost immediately...which made us feel quite akward... The food itself was tasty. It is "all you can eat" from several plates/pots, spicy vegetables, dishes with mushrooms, rice. Nothing to really rave about, but decent food, guaranteed vegan.

Nice and interesting place - Edit

I spent one day there and had good food in a interesting atmosphere. The taste and stile was great and let me believe it is really the local way of eating. At the shared meals was a lot of food in about 5 different dishes.

Pros: uique experience, good food
