Arisai Restaurant, Luang Prabang

49–3 Sakkarine Road
Luang Prabang
Tel: 856 71 255 000's insider take:

Luang Prabang's lineup of pizza places and Lao- and French-heavy kitchens got a bit more diverse with the late 2007 opening of this well-conceived bistro specializing in home-cooked Mediterranean dishes. With an open kitchen and just 40 seats spread over two floors, Arisai achieves a casual intimacy that is reinforced by its hearty dishes, especially North African specialties such as roasted chicken and merguez sausage with couscous and house-made harissa. The eight-seat sidewalk terrace is the place for people-watching.—Christopher Cox
