My experience at Spago has been thoroughly satisfying enough. They serve great pastas, good wine and pizzas that are decent enough. I do feel that any restaurant deserves a few chances and I haven't tried enough menu items yet. I am excited to go again now that they have reopened and see what the new menu has to offer - which might make me change my rating.

Indochine - Ubon Ratchahani

Reviewed By Sirchai - Sisaket, Thailand

I was there alone, with family and colleagues. The food is great and of high quality.
What's really important is that the food's always fresh, I was never disappointed.
No matter if you try still alive shrimp or any other dishes, it's a nice place to eat out.

We dined here on the strength of its popularity for good steak. They offer a choice of Western cuts and boast they're the best Farang food restaurant in Ubon.
We ordered shrimp rolls for starters. They hadn't been on the table 2 minutes when a waiter served one of our steaks (medium). We sent it back as we hadn't eaten our first course. If our second steak hadn't been ordered well done then that too would likely have been served too soon.
The steaks were from a local farm of some note. The meat was really delicious. Just a shame the staff had no training in how to serve to European standards, and instead just delivered the food as and when it became available out of the wok Thai style.
We brought a bottle of own wine and the corkage was 200B.
We would need to be in a good mood to return.

Risotto

Reviewed By Phil M - Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand

Having lived in Ubon for 5 years now, we have tried many, many restaurants. This is clearly the best in quality, ambience AND value.
It is much cheaper than the higher rated restaurants on this list while keeping great quality. My favourite dishes are the risottos and pizzas. Next time I'm trying the cheesecake (to see if they can make genuine cheesecake, which is very hard to find in Thailand). To add to the good points above, I always feel like I'm eating in someone's home - given its homely feel inside. The only issue I have is that they accept only cash (not credit card), but this is not a big deal as it is cheaper than the other restaurants anyway.

Zaap Soi 9

Reviewed By MeMock - Australia

It was big at the previous place but this new joint is even bigger! Massive Thai menu, inside air con area as well as outside area. Orders taken via iPads etc. Service can be slow, food and drinks are pretty good. Live entertainment later in the evening. A good place for a night out with friends, not a romantic dinner. Look out for the mozzies.

Fresh veggies and food. Small restaurant but packed with flavour. They have air-conditioning which really helps during hot days.
A must try are -
Crispy pancakes
Nam Nuang
Banana flower spicy salad.
Service can be busy during lunch. (I always try to eat before or after peak hours.)

Reviewed By SuidAfrikanerInAsia

Tried the wrong way burger.
Delicious but the size was disappointing.
On the menu it seems as if it covers more than half the plate. (Photos below)
But in reality it is smaller than the palm of my hand.
Just onder 200 baht.
Thai food was good.
Condiments fresh.
Service was fine.
Good setting.
Pool table.
Friendly staff.

The Outside Inn

The Outside Inn is a unique and intimate place to stay, eat, enjoy a coffee or a drink, or just relax in Ubon Ratchathani. Made-from-scratch Mexican food, amazing burgers and other American & Western choices, as well as a full Thai menu. A full drink menu including authentic cocktails, beer, wine, coffee, and other non-alcoholic drinks. A beautiful garden setting with classic Thai and Isaan style and architecture. All located in the city of Ubon, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and night life.

Reviewed By TexaThai - Texas USA

We not only enjoyed the Tex-Mex queso & chips, but 3 other Mexican dishes on the menu. The Thai food menu looked good, but we were just in the mood for something different. We enjoyed everything! And getting to chat with the owner with his little daughter. Keeping this one on the list if we get back to Ubon.

We just arrived Ubon Ratchatani and want to have Noodle. This shop is not far from airport, just about 2 km.
We don’t disappoint with the taste. The soup is tasty, there is chicken, pork rib, pork sausage, egg to eat with noodle.
Recommended to try hot noodle soup here!!
