Our Concept

Owned by the same family as the successful Tamnak Lao restaurant in Vientiane. 

Tamnak Lao means "The Residence" because this restaurant is located in one of the original French-style homes built in Vientiane. 

As tourism increased in Luang Prabang during the period 1996 to 1998, many tourists requested a good, authentic Lao restaurant as they didn’t want to eat at the little food stalls dotted about town.

So Tamnak Lao 2 was born in Luang Prabang.

Quality Lao Food at Reasonable Prices

The restaurant's quality assurance policy is to serve authentic Lao food at reasonable prices, to maintain an extremely clean environment and to provide excellent service.

By strictly maintaining this quality assurance policy, the restaurant has become a very popular dining experience with tourists and the local Lao.

Cooking Classes

You can take the delicious flavours home with you by attending one of the Tamnak Lao cooking classes. Attend a whole day class, or for those with less time, evening classes are available. Have fun learning more about Lao cuisine and it is guaranteed you can cook the dishes at home.
