Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice people and quite adequate food. You will get both western and eastern dishes here and a range of drinks. Cheap and cheerful - no glitz or glamour just good hearty food and drinks :)

Nice, friendly place. Good selection of choices Thai and European/American. Good service. Som Tam is very good! Order however spicy. you. like it. Chicken wings are good...crispy, cooked well, and large. The fried seafood plate is generous but the meat inside both the calamari. and....the fish filets were soft and undercooked. We sent them back and they were. still not firm or flaky. Not sure if this was the degree of (un)doneness or the fish itself. In any case, a disappointment. Otherwise the batter on the items was excellent. That fact...that a third of the plate couldn't be eaten brought down. the rating. Probably won't return and risk it again.More

First time here, I was very warmly welcomed, the owner asked if I wanted a fan switched on. The menu is large and covers and a number of types of food. My goulash was excellent , as were the mashed potato. Meal was slightly underseasoned....I will return on my next Nong Khai visit.More

Very relaxed atmosphere and very well priced good and drinks. Very clean too. Very entertaining French owner.More

This restaurant ran by a Franco-Thai lovely couple is well worth a visit if you are staying in Nong Khai. They are genuinely good people and they make their eatery feel like home. Everyone is made to feel very welcome. Mai's food is excellent and...very reasonably priced and Luc's company is very enjoyable. Also you can get a lot of great recommendations and tips for your stay and visit of the area. The restaurant attracts the expat community and it is the mark of a good eating place that the regulars keep coming back.More

If you want a great well cooked meal with good service, then this is one of only a few places in Nong Khai. Friendly, clean place with armchairs and meal tables as well, hard to beat? I recommend the "Beef Bourguignon" very tasty.

We found this place after looking for a vegetarian restaurant that didn't exist, very glad that we did. It does some western foid and some thai. There wasn't anything vegetarian on the menu, but when we asked they happily replaced the meat with tofu. The...meal was well presented and delicious. The staff couldn't have been more helpful.

If you like the principal of looking for the best quality/price/quantity restaurants, this place is for you. Speaking Thai, Lao, English, French (and maybe more), in a very nice atmosphere (in this area, this place is a haven of peace), this restaurant provides a very...tasty food, more than you can expect. This can be call cuisine. The owners and staff are so nice, efficient, their advises and recommendations so accurate, I would suggest people to not go anywhere but there. On top, the pool table, free of charge, to bet the beers with friends !More

Reviewed 13 April 2019

Had dinner there twice; their range of salads is nice and the choice is different to most other places. The diner features a pool table and a simple bar; service is rather grouchy though. The meat dishes (chicken) were cooked too dry in both cases...- and rather heavy on the mayonnaise. The couple running the place are friendly, the hubby (Belgian or French) though "challenged" with English. The rest room could bear a serious touch-up; disgusting for a place run by a foreigner - to say the least! Will be back for the broccoli or rigatoni salad again.More
