Description: This is a restaurant pub that opened about 4 months ago. It is the only place of its type in this small city and it's customer base is both tourists, local expats, and Thais. It is run by an amiable English owner who was a chef in England and features a small menu as well as a draft beer and spirits. The prices are inexpensive. I am an experienced traveler in Thailand and I stayed in town for 2 weeks and went there several times per week. There is a well maintained pool table and a wide choice of music to request. The best way to describe the location is simply "behind the yellow bank. The Krungsri Banks always have yellow signs and there is only one in this town as you enter it. I think listing this restaurant would be of benefit for any travelers passing through this city since there is no other place to have a sandwich and a beer and no one would look for it otherwise. thanks.

Located a bit out of the city centre, serving simple Thai & Western food. They have good live music.

“Hamburger was O.K.”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

No 1 Hamburger was O.K. but not the best I have eaten. At 200B it was a little overpriced, but perfectly edible.

“Owned by a Scot so must be good”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I went to No1 Bar with friends last night. This certainly is a hidden gem in Khon Kaen and very popular with the locals. The service staff and the owner are lovely and make sure that your needs are met. We ordered food once the kitchen was closed but this was no problem and the owner granted our food wishes. The food was excellent - good to have some British food once in a while. This is not on the main bar streets but is easy to walk from the Pullman hotel or take a taxi. I had a great night in the bar with great company and great food.

“Excellent Oasis”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

Great place to unwind with mine hosts Marc and Noie.
Just sit back and watch the world go by over a cold Chang beer.
Long way to the beach.
