when the daily is finished the kitchen closes

Our commitment to quality and freshness ensures that every meal we serve is as fresh as it can be. Unlike other restaurants, we don’t rely on pre-packaged frozen food. Instead, we pride ourselves on cooking everything from scratch with only the freshest ingredients. Although frozen food may be common elsewhere, Laos culture values the sanctity of fresh food, and we share this belief.

This means that we don’t have an inventory of frozen meals waiting to be defrosted and reheated. Instead, we promise that each order has been freshly prepared today and its freshness is guaranteed.
