PO Box 253 Vang Vieng (at /off Highway 13, 4km north of Vang Vieng), Phoudindaeng, Laos,

Serves meat, vegan options available. A vibrant hub for a variety of projects that center around the organic production of mulberry trees, along with organic fruits, vegetables, and other produce for the restaurant. The mulberry trees provide leaves to produce mulberry tea, mulberry wine, mulberry tempura, and mulberry shakes. Wages support the many villagers who work here, and foreign visitors come for the opportunity to work on an organic farm. From Western style breakfast to vegetable soups, curries, and Laos-style main meals, all with tofu options, teas and local coffee. Also a guest house.

First Review by rjmehra

ok but not more... - Edit

Came here because it's the organic farm and expected too much.

The food was tasty and fresh, but I didn't like a few things:
- Their food combination was bad. It was vegetables, fruits, cheese, fish, starch, rice all together...
- Apparently had sugar in part of the meals, had to specifically ask not to have it

Overall felt bad afterwards and very heavy. They do have their own made goat cheese which is nice

Improved rapidly, really nice place - Edit

To clarify, this review is about the Organic Farm itself and not the Organic Farm cafe in town.
I stayed on the farm, as I suggest ANYONE visiting Vang Vieng also does. Seriously, do not stay in town, you will hate it. The farm is lovely and the restaurant attached is great, perhaps the only place in the entire region for the discerning veg*n in fact.
The options are interesting and unique. There are veggie as well as vegan items you will not find elsewhere in Vang Vieng, or Laos for that matter! But please note, you should ASK and not assume that a dish not listing meat/fish/milk/eggs will not contain it. The staff do understand these requests, but they do need to be made!
Lao Bamboo soup is one of the best vegan dishes I had in the country. SPICY as hell though (not a bad thing ;)

Pros: Excellent food, Good range, Amazing place

Cons: Not the cheapest, Slow

All-around best organic choice 4km from Vang Vieng - Edit

Incredible, it's truly the only place I've seen and tasted clean organic non-msg food for a long time while traveling through asia on a budget. The menu offers such a beautiful selection of foods, laotion, asian and western. Anything I ate was utterly tasty and full of loving energy. Incredible Mulberry shake with milk or yogurt?, Mulberry leaves tempura (about 6 huge leaves with a light bater and honey sauce...ask for soy and it's savoury), Mulberry pancakes...this one was the best I've had, thick, made with mulberry and possibly wholewheat flour yet not on the overly sweet side, delicious! and of course Mulberry tea...this regulates sugar blood and pressure along with some essential vitamin. I went twice and we had various meals. It well worth the 5 mins trip by tuk tuk or motobike, we walked there of course. There is much to see, the place, the garden and trees all next to the river. The only drawback is the close proximity of one tubbing bar. So it's noisy but when you're traveling, a place like this, with such a beautiful menu and intentional support to the community is a jewel. The owner has many projects on the go and the place is mostly supported by volunteers. He also makes a wonderful Organic Goat cheese and offers goats to villagers who wish to do the same. A very inspiring place for the community and for travelers. I loved hanging out there.

Pros: Organic, Excellent food, Healthy cuisine

Cons: Loud noise from nearby tubing bar
