Said by a guest "One of the best pizza's I've ate. Thin and crispy and very good size, reasonable price too. I'd definitely recommend this Italian restaurant when traveling to Nong Khai"
If you like a quiet drink to watch the sun go down across the Mekong then pop into The Sunset B. & R. and if it close to sunset enjoy a wonderful view od the sun setting on the Thai-Lao Friendship Brigde.
A Bar with unblemished beer, a perfect reputation, never intentionally under charged and oozes the appropriate measure of off-base. Where you can do as little as you need and more than you can envision... (not been sued since April 2012)..
Danish Corner (Formerly Danish Baker)
Nong (the owner) has done a huge facelift to the bar over the last year. Now seeing a rapid growing popularity by foreign guests. (Especially Danes) The Bar features a Pooltable. Very good location.
Abt. 30 min. drive westwards on Rd. 242 fm. N. K.
Great food and a wonderful location quietly overlooking the Mekong river. Watched a chap fishing with a lift net whilst enjoying a superb meal
Vietnamese restaurant located on the riverfront. Super fast service and very nice food. Most of the time the place is packed, certainly on weekends. But it is worth a wait. Also sells prepacked takeaways.
