Lao Café, the only restaurant in London to serve Laotian food, is to open in Covent Garden on 16th January 2017. Focussing on one of the last great undiscovered cuisines, Lao Café is a personal project for Saiphin Moore, head chef and co-founder of the phenomenally successful restaurant group Rosa’s Thai Cafe, whose family are originally from Laos. For this new venture, she draws on her upbringing to serve a range of zingy salads, spicy curries and delicious chargrilled fish and meat that are staples of the local cuisine.
