Lao Falang Restaurant

in Phonsavan

This spacious, stylish and impeccably clean Italian restaurant is run by a friendly Genoese native who speaks four languages. Highly recommended for alchemising sirloin steak, lamb and giant prawns into various delicious incarnations, plus its handmade pasta (carbonara and bolognese), thin-based pizza and homemade ice cream. Great wine selection from the homeland as well.

It can also make takeaway ham, chicken, tuna or veggie sandwiches (from 7am to 10am) for long bus journeys.
