Had a brill lunch here and at a good price. Only thing which let it down was beef was the Australian salf beef rubbish. Why please the Australian palate? Large portions, yorkshires, fab gravy and hostess/owner is very pleasant lady. They do other food in the week, but if u fancy a roast this is about the best you can... More

I have been living in udon thany for the last 3 months and found it very hard to find a good place to eat. A friend then told me to try the book house as he said food is brilliant. After giving it a go I eat here at least 3 times a week. Sunday roast is amazing and has... More

I like supporting lovely owned businesses and lived this place from the beginning. The menu is fantastic, and the cook takes personal care of you. Following a bad patch, Bookhouse has relocated and is back to being THE BEST IN UDON. Please give it a try. It is our if the way, a bit, but the food is really good... More

I have eaten in the original bookhouse many times before and I have never had a bad meal. Today we tried the new location at city lodge. I was utterly disappointed. The service was slow and inattentive, the new location is on a street corner in a stale smelling beer bar. There is no music, TV or atmosphere. As it... More

I had a chance in the past couple weeks to visit the new Bookhouse location. It is now located in City Lodge across from Bangkok Hospital. The hours have changed as it is now open 10AM to 2PM for breakfast and lunch & 5PM to 10PM for dinner. The food menu is still the same and is absolutely awesome. The... More

Stopped for breakfast at 10.00 to find that the new location is a beer bar with late night revellers still at the bar or asleep on the sofa - fair play to them :) Unfortunately this was not the breakfast ambience we were looking for. Food was fine and staff helpful, WiFi dodgy.

When this place first opened it was good and they seemed to try, it then took a dramatic nose dive with pathetic waiting staff and poor management, how they were ever voted TA number 1 in Udon Thani is beyond me, I hope if it is ever taken on by new management they learn by what happened to its previous...

Excellent location. Bookshop was lovely and the menu was comprehensive. Service and decor suggested that the manager was not around.

This previously excellent restaurant is now a disaster. The family seems to now live in the library section! Baby in a carriage clothes scattered about and on the floor. Nobody was here, but the tables were.so dirty it was hard to find a place to sit. When we asked about the menu we were told there was no beef, no... More
