Still by far the best food in Udon Thani

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... read 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

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

Easy to find cafe with extras. Place has a huge selection on menu but quite a few had not available stickers. I ordered a breakfast which included hash browns, only to be told no hash browns left. This was not a problem and was offered toast instead. Food was nice and homely. I felt the place needed a lick of... More
