Reviewed September 23, 2013

Decor was really impressive, food a little less so.

Menu was standard, lots of steak dishes mostly.

Ordered the Salmon Pasta Pesto, portion was extremely small, pesto was very dry (though a great flavour), and the handful of salmon pieces scattered throughout the dish were full of bones.

The sign for the toilets was amusing!

Promises much more than it delivers - pies and pasties of poor quality and still frozen on the inside

“Excellent Food - Friendly Staff”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This café overlooking the lake is a great spot for good food and a relaxed atmosphere. Nice to plonk on a comfy couch and check your emails with free Wi fi too. A bit more expensive than street food but the coffee is great and the atmosphere relaxing.

“The best surprise of Udon Thani”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Traveling through Udon Thani, The Bookhouse is located in the city, just north of the main city roads, in the city on Lake Sim (Nong Sim). A beautiful restaurant, a real welcoming and updated chic feel decorated with great consideration to their guest’s enjoyment. Our dinner was so good, the Thai Spicy Salad, Green Curry and coconut we had to go back the next day for their Sunday Roast which was equally incredible and prepared with the very best international standards including a light fully Yorkshire pudding and a marvelous horseradish cream. Their fresh pressed coffee is some of the best I have ever enjoyed in Thailand as well. They offer a great international beer and wine selection to complement their most satisfying western travel, and also some of the best local Thai dishes that are the freshest and tastiest we have ever enjoyed.

The owner and incredible Chef is a wonderful girl named Nok and she is there to make sure your dining experience is one of the very best. Very attentive and very helpful. The Bookhouse is a must to experience restaurant, breakfast, lunch or dinner when traveling through Udon Thani!
