Why The Apsara is special ?

The interior emphasises the former school’s open floor plan, with Vietnamese lanterns, a sleek wooden bar counter, and flourishes of bright fabric; while the outside terrace offers picturesque views over the Nam Khan river.

The menu consists mainly of traditional Lao dishes, along with a selection of Asian and Western fusion cuisine. Highlights include the Lao sour and spicy fish soup; and the yellow curry with pumpkin, apple eggplant, bamboo, and Lao basil. Diners have the option of sharing their dishes in the traditional Lao style, or having the dishes served Western-style as individual courses.

Some must-try dishes:

The aubergine salad

The crispy buffalo cheeks.

The tapioca/mango dessert

The coconut and pumpkin parfait

We had heard that The Apsara was quite good but it was better than that! My wife and I shared the aubergine salad appetizer --- delicious combination of five or six ingredients; then we ordered the whole fish designed for two people followed by the tapioca/mango dessert --- all were delicious! Not only that but the price, before gratuity, was $43 US and that included two glasses of malbec from Argentina (good but not great). The service and setting were just fine too. I recommend this place if you have at least two nights in Luang Prabang (our favorite is Blue Lagoon if you have only one night).
