On my trip through Thailand I've come across the Brick House Inn in Udon Thani. A nice laid back town in Issaan with an international airport.
I've had several meals and drinks here and enjoyed everyone of them. Off course, like everywhere, we always see...room for improvement but that's from our perspective and according to our state of mind that day. I've run through the comment section of the Brick House Inn and as somebody who has worked over 30 years in the hospitality business in several countries, I must admit I'm surprised.
The Brick House Inn is a venue with a lot of ambiance. The place looks good and is clean.
The food is great and not expensive. Portions are big on average. Considering most of the food and drinks are flown in from other countries, I consider the prices very reasonable.
The staff of this place are nice and friendly. They are being as helpfull as possible considering the language barrier. Many thai staff do speak some english but keep in mind that your accent, and we take that for granted, might be a small issue in their understanding.
Service time is reasonable. We're not in our hometowns where we only have only 45 minutes to eat. In Thailand, especially outside of tourist regions, don't expect your food to come 5 minutes after ordering it. It takes time to prepare a good meal. Especially when 6 people take 6 different plates.
In hospitality venues the owners make the place according to preferences. 100 restaurants and not one is the same as the other. Off course any individual has their own preferences, the Brick House Inn, the owners and their staff try to make your stay as agreeing as possible.
Myself, when I go to a new area in the world, I always look at several places before writing a comment. It situates the place as compared to what else there is in the neighbourhood.
You can't compare Udon to Paris for exemple.
Anyways, I was really satisfied on most points that are important to me.
Brick House Inn is a place I recommend.More
