Enter this city oasis and switch off from the outside world. Amphone will envelop you in a space filled with abundant natural light, yet serenely shadowed by the presence of large indoor plants, giving one the sense of relaxing outdoors. The elegant interior features colourful walls, high ceilings and wooden floors, decorated to calm the mind and the soul.
Amphone is situated inside a lovely Laotian residential home, located in a quiet neighbourhood of Vientiane. The restaurant fuses French-Colonial influences with local decoration and traditional Asian household items. The cuisine serves up local specialties using Lao herbs and spices: such as grilled chicken or fish marinated in local herbs. A must try and house recommendation is “sai oua”- sausages usually served with sticky rice. Everything comes with a smile.

The Chef & the Brigade

“My passion is to share with the world our rich culture and our flavours. Lao cuisine is very distinctive and not that common around the world. There is nothing that gives me more pleasure than to see our guests discover our local dishes then ask ‘how to make back in their home’. For me this is what drives me, not to not offer just great food, but to offer great Lao food.”
