Nok is the owner of this business. Whilst I haven't eaten a meal here I have purchased her pies and sausage Rolls.She makes the pies sausage rolls bread and other items in the shop. She has a good range and they are delicious. Her products can be purchased in Villa Market Supermarket in UD Town but the prices there are... More

Just had breakfast here because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor. It's not a restaurant anymore, it's someone's house. It is dirty and nasty inside and I was served hot tea in a dirty mug. I thought it was stained but i could rub it off with little effort. The tables are surrounded with upholstered chairs that have black smeared... More

We had lunch at the Bookhouse. It was quite difficult to find as we travelled from the other side of town. The location is nice, with views from the terrace. We found that the menu was uninspiring and the service not particularly good.

I first went to The Bookhouse in May 2015 when I moved to Udonthani. Fellow teachers who had already been living there for some time said they HAD to take me there. I haven't looked back since. Even though I have moved out of Udonthani, I still make a stop at The Bookhouse when I am in town. There are... More

Lovely food and huge choice of dishes. The coffee however was horrible at best, which was quite disappointing considering the name of the restaurant and the price of the coffee.

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
