Dining Options in Ubon Ratchathani

Night market food stalls
The food stalls of Ubon Ratchathani's night market

Ubon is well off the main tourist trail, so there's something of a dearth of tourist-friendly restaurants outside of the hotels. For the adventurous, there's a 'night market' of food stalls on the corner of Ratchabut and Kuan Thani streets, next to the National Museum. The collection of street-food carts is open every night from sunset onwards. There are lots of tables where you can sit to eat.

The main alternative is down by the riverside, where you'll find a string of restaurants facing the river running from the new market next to the bridge. This is also where you'll find the town's one and only coffee shop where you can 'hang out'. Moon Lover is a small Thai styled house with a funky interior where you can relax over a coffee or light snack.
