Why Coconut Garden is special ?

The Coconut Garden offers well-prepared Lao cuisine in a charming outdoor setting. The restaurant’s set menus, which each include five different Lao dishes, provide a wonderful introduction to the different flavours of Lao cuisine. The vegetarian set menu features dishes like fried glass noodles with bamboo shoots; and banana fritters in pineapple syrup for dessert.

Like many of the city’s restaurants, the menu also includes a few Western dishes to satisfy picky eaters. Coconut Garden mainly offers outdoor seating, including a courtyard located along the road in the front, and a shady back patio decorated with fountains.

We were seated in the garden of this atmospheric restaurant on LP's Main Street. When it started to rain we were quickly seated elsewhere. I ordered the vegetarian set meal. This was delicious! Staff was professional and friendly but maybe a tad bored at times. To top it all off, they make s good dry martini, which is rarity in these parts.

This was the third time, on separate trips to Luang Prabang, that we have eaten at Coconut Garden. We did so on the recommendation of a local and we were glad to return. Our group of 4 chose a mixture of local and western dishes and everyone was happy with their meal. The Laap was excellent as was the marinated chicken and the two that chose pasta commented on how good it was. Coconut Garden is a large restaurant with local, Asian and western dishes.

This restaurant was recommended to us by several local Lao people and it was a good choice for our first night in Luang Prabang. It provides enough choices to satisfy everyone and the drinks are cold. The setting is green and lush and very inviting. If you are looking for a simple, no frills meal this is the place to try.
