Th Sisavangvong (at Wat Mai corner), Luang Prabang, Laos

Serves meat, vegan options available. Two stalls in the night market offer a vegan food buffet. Large selection of dishes include tofu, veggies, and rice paper rolls. As much as you can fit on a plate for 10-15,000 kip, depending on the stall. Directions: vegan stalls are on the right hand side in the first lane on the left when walking from Kitsalath Road along Sisavangvong Road. Look for the stalls with the pink and blue bowls. There is a meat-selling stall between them. Open Mon-Sun 5:00pm-10:00pm.

First Review by vegan_simon

cheap but bland - Edit

No doubt it is the cheapest option for a vegan/vegetarian meal. But all the dishes tasted quite bland and even the curry was lacking the usual flavours. The fried veggies are oily and cold.

Pros: cheap

Cons: no flavour

Quick and cheap! - Edit

The buffet had a lot of things to choose from, for a really cheap price! Almost everything I had tasted great. The food is cold but the staff is happy to warm it up for you!

Cold and bland food - Edit

Would probably have missed it unless a girl who was working there called out vegetarian buffet. Everything is vegan, and meat is sold on the side. Tried many different dishes, but everything was bland and cold. They offered to heat up in pan also used for meat, we said no thanks. Would not come back. I'd recommend going to a stall that sells sandwiches and get an avocado tofu sandwich without mayo instead.

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Cold food, Not tasty, very bland, Crowded place

nice market - Edit

Went there yesterday and location on the map is updated now. They sell vegan food and you are free to add meet. Air is filled with barbecue smoke. It's not freshly cooked but I didn't get sick either. Food is ok at least it fills.

Pros: cheap

Cons: serves meet

Night Market stalls worth the risk - Edit

Ate here on 10th October 2017. Up to date location and directions are that the night market vegan stalls ARE in the first side lane on the left as one walks from Kitsalath Road along Sisavangvong Road (which is closed to vehicular traffic at night when the market operates). To be clear, Indigo café is right on the corner of the lane and Sisavangvong Road.

The food is diverse and good and cheap (15,000kip per plate full) BUT most of it is air temperature so has clearly been cooked somewhere else and brought here. AND, although the food is all up on tables, don’t look down on the floor/ground if you are worried about cleanliness. ALSO, the two stalls which sell vegan food have a grilled chicken and/or fish stall between them which somehow seems associated with them (as the man there received the money for the buffet).

Tables for eating at are on the other side of the narrow walkway opposite the stalls. The stalls are really popular with foreign tourists and, although we were certainly worried by the lack of cleanliness of the place and the fact the food wasn’t hot, we didn’t get sick and in fact felt well-sustained by it. Definitely, worth a try if you’re game.

Pros: cheap, diverse and good tasting food , an experience in itself

Cons: lack of cleanliness of surrounds and bowls

no vegetarian or vegan stalls! - Edit

There were definitely no vegetarian or vegan stalls there and we checked twice. There are about 3 or 4 stalls offering 'vegetarian buffet' where you fill a bowl for 15,000. The food is far from fresh and far from delicious in my opinion, and I had an upset stomach the next day. Every stall also sells lots of meat and fish on sticks which they grill and the whole place is full of meat smoke. I wouldn't go here. For 15,000 kip you can get a tasty avocado or peanut butter sandwich at one of the stalls near the entrance, ( although the bread may not be vegan as always). You can also get tasty meals in some restaurants such as a great pad Thai in Bamboo Garden restaurant or fresh spring rolls in phounsub restaurant.

Also - don't miss the mini pancakes sold at the entrance to the food alley! You can get these lots of places- made just with rice, coconut milk and sugar. Seriously delicious.

Wrong address - Edit

The vegan/ vegetarian buffet is no longer at the mentioned location at the corner of Wat Mai. You can however find 2 stores selling vegan and veggie meals for 15,000 kip at the "food street". They hand out pink bowls and you can eat to your heart's content. Simple and delicious! Look out for the meat at the corner of the stall- that's real meat and not vegetarian/ vegan!

The best place to eat in Luang Prabang - Edit

So many options, all you can eat buffet for 15,000 kip. The food is sometimes cold but still delicious! 10/10 recommend. Go down the alley next to the Indigo cafe and it is about halfway down. Handing out pink bowls 👍👍

Amazing! - Edit

Wrong address on Happy Cow. Upon entering the market from the west, take your first left down a side alley. This is where the food market is and there is a vegetarian stand among them.

Vegetarian buffet for 15,000kip - amazing!

If you are hungry is ok , but the quality is not so good . The food looks that stay there for days . But maybe the only one only vegan in town

Great Price - Edit

All you can fit on a plate for 10,000 kip. Went here 2 times. It was definitely better the second time because I knew what I liked from my trial the first time! The first time is a bit overwhelming, I wanted to try everything so I went a bit crazy.Definitely a must try!

Pros: Great selection, CHEAP, friendly staff

Great find! - Edit

We've been eating here every night in Luang Prabang. Great vegan/vegetarian food for an unbeatable price! 10,000 kip for a loaded plate. So much cheaper and more filling than any restaurant. Would definitely recommend!

Pros: cheap, huge portion, good variety of vegetarian food

Cons: we didn't realise you could get it heated up!

Amazing value - Edit

A really nice range of dishes here and phenomenal value at 10,000kip for as much as you can fit onto your plate! They will warm it for you in a wok, too, which is nice. I'm not convinced it's 100% vegan as there were a number of battered things here which I wondered about - is the batter egg batter? However, there are enough other things to satisfy a vegan, including a great range of veg (delicious pumpkin and aubergine!) and also non-egg tofu!!!!! They tend to favour the egg-tofu in a number of places in Laos, it seems, so it was great to find the purely soy variety here. Tasty enough, and big beer Lao for 12,000kip. Can't argue with that!

Pros: Lovely veg & non-egg tofu, They heat it for you, Reasonably priced beer

Cons: Very busy, Not sure if battered things are vegan or not, Stuff runs out early!

Go early - Edit

Range of vegan food arrives super fresh just after 6pm to a waiting line of hungry Europeans. 10000 for the buffet and 10000 for the beer is a pretty hard deal to beat. If the food lasts beyond 7pm it's perhaps best avoided in this heat.

Pros: cheap , plentiful

Cons: don't let it sit too long in the heat

Tasty and cheap! - Edit

I would recommend going early (before 6 pm) when the food is fresh and hasn't been visited by too many flies. The spring rolls are simple and tasty! Food is not too greasy which is a plus.

Pros: cheap, enough variety

Cons: tables are falling apart so don't expect fancy sea

Cheap and clean - Edit

Not especially delicious or warm, but a much better option than most of the overpriced restaurants on Sisavangvong. There are actually 3 stalls. One where the description says and the other 2 in a covered food alley next to Indigo Cafe (maybe vegetarian and not Vegan). I've only tried the first. The photos people have uploaded are from both locations. There are also many other Vegan foods in the night market. Coconut mini pancakes, fried bananas, steamed corn, Vegan spring rolls, fruit, and veggies on skewers.

all vegan buffet - Edit

As this buffet is the only all vegan place in Luang Prabang, we had to check it out. It's only 10,000 kip (about $1.25) and all you can fit on one plate. The food was basic, but very good. They get a five just due to being vegan and so cheap. Can't be beat. And there's a long communal table and we barely got a seat. The place is hopping. Definitely check them out and stroll around the market too.

Pros: all vegan, cheap

Vegan & Cheap - Edit

It's really nice to have this place - street food without having to ask and to worry whether it is vegan... and very cheap (only 10.000 Kip)! You pile up as much as you want on a plate, than hand it over to them to reheat it in a wok. So, it all gets mixed in the wok, consider this when choosing your options... You can then eat your food at large communal tables in the street.
The food isn't a culinary revelation, but is tasty and filling. It isn't easy to find inexpensive vegan options in the centre of Luang Prabang, as everything is very very touristy and many restaurants aimed at a wealthy clientele, with focus on french cuisine...

Pros: Vegan, Central, Cheap

The owner will heat the food if you ask him.
