Thanks to numerous donations and the hard work of local employees, volunteers and students, OBT finished building its bamboo restaurant in December 2016. Built as part of the pre-hospitality program, the restaurant provides the trainees with access to a hands-on training in kitchen management, cooking and service. The restaurant is almost entirely managed by them.
The guests from the OBT homestays and bungalows can enjoy a meal or buy some of the displayed handicrafts (lamps, jewelry and anything our team members imagine really) at the restaurant. It is situated right next to our organic farm which uses its organic waste for compost. Moreover, the restaurant was entirely furnished by handcrafted bamboo furniture and lamps.
Since its opening the restaurant is proving to be a meeting point for our training program and our community projects.
The restaurant’s description would not be complete without mentioning its beautiful location. During the rainy season the restaurant gives directly on the Mekong and during the dry season it borders the little path that goes across the fields and to the wide sandy Mekong beach. If you drop in sometime between the two seasons you can get the best of both!
