The Khao Niau Restaurant is situated on Bang Niang Main Street, just 20-30m from the high way / traffic lights. Direct access from the restaurant back entrance to the afternoon / evening market (Mon, Wed, Sat). As said we had great expectations, but most of the came short. The Chicken Satay stick meats were very thick, tasteless and one piece... More

The boiling pot was left on a hot stone and then the fish, chicken and veg were left on separate... More

We had to wait pretty long and we were so hungry so that's 4/5. Worth it in the end. The steam pot was explained to us in detail before we started. The meat and the soup and all the veggies tasted great. We also had some steamed duck and sticky rice. Overall very good value and delicious food with friendly... More

Sheltered here from the rain but was a great find Yummy spicy food - not westernised - and very fresh ingredients. Right next to markets so they just go next door to get whatever food you want cooked We had fresh mango and papaya salad and an authentic green curry duck - generous serves and very tasty

Nice spot for evening meal. Good service with a large well varied menu. We had plenty of vegetarian choices and they were happy to modify the meat main to accommodate our needs

My grand parents are originally from Esan area in Thailand and I like Esan food. This restaurant is totally different from other uniformed Thai restaurants in this area, and they serve Esan food with local ingredients. We enjoyed som tam and hot pot that we did not expect in Khaolak. Highly recommended to anyone who want to try the difference!
