made a stop over in Udon on the way from Laos to Korat and found this place. It deserves its ranking on Tripadvisor. My thai wife had Lab Mou and she tought it was very good. Foodwise she is not easy to please if she doesnt cook it herself so her opinion counts. I had a Marguerita, Rib-eye steak and... More

Other than the extensive time it takes to be serviced and fed, it's a nice alternative to the hustle and bustle of Udon city itself. An extensive menu should please everyone, and the relaxed atmosphere in this well decorated venue will please all. A bit more expensive than other places, it's a good eatery if you've got the funds to... More

They made Tom Ka soup for me, even though not on the menu. It was amazing. The outside dining is right on the road, so can be a bit noisy. View to the lake across the road is nice. Food a bit slow to come out, but that's because it's made to order and fresh, so have some patience. Try... More

Woke up the day after arriving in udonthani and needed something special- boy, did this place hit the spot. Suited both farrang and thai palettes and the menu was like an encyclopedia. Be warned, if you go on a totally empty stomach, you will need 30minutes to choose. Seriously, the food all looked amazing and tasted even better. Beautiful inside... More

I don't usually leave reviews on trip advisor, but when I do, it's because I'm suitably impressed. Entrees were delicious, imported beer served in a frosted mug was sublime, and the main I chose rounded it out perfectly. So happy right now. If you can't find something you like on the menu here, then you must be very difficult to... More

This place is amazing, stunning setting with views of the lake and public park. More than that, the food was amazing! Some of the nicest food I have eaten. All cooked fresh to order, not long to wait though. Read some of the poorer reviews and all I can say is, the French will whinge about anything given the chance.... More

Seriosly good food and an enormous array of beers & ciders, all reasonably priced. The view over the Nong SimThat lake and park is equally good. That both Thais and Ex-pats visit this little gem says it all...
