Ubon Ratchathani is in Thailand, so of course, ninety percent of the restaurants here are Thai or Isaan. But there is an ever growing number of restaurants opening offering other than Thai cuisine. some of these are operated by expats bring a taste of home to their second home in Ubon. Others are opened by enterprising Thais.
Thai food is delicious, spicy, varied and cheap. Thai food dominates meals here. Sometimes you get a hankering for a change of pace and things you ate in your homeland. Normally international cuisine will oost a bit more than Thai meals, espcecially if the food item has bot be impported from out of country. The extra cost is worth it when you crave a meal that isn' Thai.
Listed here are some of the Western and other Asian cuisine restaurants that are currently open in Ubon. This list is not all inclusive and I have not personally eated at all these places. If you want to try something diffent you can take your pick and give it a try.
