Great variety of Thai and Western Food. I tried quite a few of them, they were all good. Very drinkable red wine, reasonably priced, which is not always the case in the Land of Smiles. Service is friendly and swift. Tables at the riverside at...night, which makes for a very romantic dinner. The place fully deserves its #1 ranking.More

We found the staff of Macky's to be very friendly and cheerful. The location, just inside the promenade, is very pleasant although the vantage point to see the rive is a bit low (nothing they can do about that without adding a second level to...the restaurant). We enjoyed the outdoor seating with cold beers. The fish and chips were outstanding! We didn't enjoy the seafood salad quite as much, as the shrimp and squid were a bit bland compared with similar dishes we've had in other places. All-in-all though, a very pleasant dinner.More

I had read reviews for this restaurant long before I came to Nóng Khai and it’s described as the best overall restaurant in Nóng Khai with Oasi having the best authentic Italian food and I agree on both points. When I arrived at my local...“Guest House” to discover their amazing international restaurant they advertise on Hotels.com had been closed for two years I had to scramble to find another breakfast place. Macky’s was suggested to me by a staff member and I hadn’t remembered they served a “Western” breakfast and I had no idea it was closer than I thought (about a 10-15 minute walk). I ended up eating breakfast and dinner here every morning for a week. The menu is somewhat limited with choices and they don’t always have what’s pictured on the menu but more than once an employee left the restaurant, went and purchased the item I wanted at another location and brought it to my table. I’ve never seen that full customer service anywhere in my travels. The staff is made up of two sisters including the owner and a third sister fills in on occasion. The main server Lucky is friendly, efficient and an absolute joy to be around. All the staff are excellent at what they do and they do it with a smile and a fun loving sense of humor. The most important thing to mention is the food is spectacular. American breakfast or Thai dinner it was consistently fresh and delicious. The Pad Thai Kung was the best I’ve had anywhere in Thailand or the U.S. The bacon is of the best quality I’ve seen over what I can get in the “States” and cooked properly to a crispy golden brown which is extremely rare in Thailand where you more often are served warm raw bacon which is one of my top Thai “pet peeves”. The location is right on the boardwalk direct riverfront. If you want a great meal with a staff that lets you know how happy they are to serve you, look no further; this place sits firmly in 1st place in Nóng Khai. Highly recommend.More

Macky's is popular with local Thais, as well as tourists (otherwise known as farangs), like me. The water front location, which overlooks the mighty Mekong River, is hard to beat, as is the service and the food. I have enjoyed pizza and pasta, as well...as soothing, ice cold beers here, on several occasions. It is simply a superb little place (see my YouTube), and yes I will be back.More

Firstly, the setting is excellent on the Mekong walkway and we scored a table outside even closer to the river at sunset. The service is friendly and efficient, we didn't have to wait too long but long enough to know it was prepared correctly. I...had chicken parmigiana that also had slice of ham which makes it cordon blue methinks. Anyway it was excellent served with crinkle cut fries done right (none of those nancy straw fries) and a small salad, to which i added their tasty balsamic dressing. Very fine indeed especially as it's been a long time for a dish like that for me. My Thai wife wanted seafood salad or tom yum goong prawns but sadly seafood was unavailable so she had to settle for nam tok moo which came out closer to laab moo and only a little spicy when she had asked for very spicy. I tried it and it6 was good. Maybe she knew the farang couldn't eat it too spicy. Portions of both meals were very generous. Prices are good for farang food I met Macky and we had a little foodie talk. She knows her stuff. So 4.5 stars because the farang food was 5 stars and the Thai 4 stars. I thoroughly recommend Mackys.More
