Bida Manda is a thoughtful gathering place celebrating the diverse food traditions and culture of Laos. Bida Manda is the Sanskrit ceremonial term for father and mother. We named the restaurant Bida Manda to honor our parents in Laos, who instilled in us our love of food and its power to bring people together.
