Taking its inspiration from the 1st millennium tribe that settled across South East Asia, LAO restaurant reflects the rich culinary traditions of the Lao people, heavily influenced by North-Eastern Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia.

LAO aims to elevate traditional South East Asian cuisine through contemporary presentations, fusing modern and traditional cooking techniques, and developing truly unique flavors and sensory experiences.

A staple food of the Lao people is steamed sticky rice, so beloved and indicative to their cultural heritage that the Lao have been known to refer to themselves as "Luk Khao Niaow", which loosely translates to "children of sticky rice".
