Tamnak Lao Restaurant serves traditional Lao dishes, many of which are prepared with bark, wood and vegetables collected from the local jungle. This 2-storey restaurant is about 650 metres east of the Royal Palace Museum of Luang Prabang.

Grab a table on the outdoor terrace on the upper floor for a nice view of Sakkarine Road. The staff are accommodating and speak basic English, making Tamnak Lao Restaurant popular with tourists. Standout dishes include the Luang Prabang salad (egg salad with coriander, watercress, and fried garlic) and feu kua – sticky rice noodles with chicken and vegetables.
