Bei Otto, German Restaurant & Pub, Sukhumvit Soi 20, Bangkok

Bei Otto, German Restaurant & Pub, Sukhumvit Soi 20, Bangkok

Directly across the road from the Windsor Suites, our hotel during our recent stay in Bangkok, on Sukhumvit Soi 20, is this great German restaurant Bei Otto!
My wife and me visited here already back in January 2008 and waited for a new visit until our last night in Bangkok, yesterday evening.

The entrance

Besides restaurant & pub, there's also a bakery/deli shop well worth visiting. We bought some home made sausages and nice German bread this morning. Can't wait for breakfast tomorrow morning!

An assorted appetizer plate with stuffed ham rolls, salami and duck liver sausage among others

We invited a friend of ours and we had a delicious meal. We ordered as German as you can get, and it was good, really! Having lived during the 8-tees in West-Berlin and having traveled extensively over the country, I know a little bit about German cuisine or Deutsche Kueche and I can vouch for the authenticity of the meals at Bei Otto.

Assorted German grilled sausages with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes

All or most ingredients are imported, which gives a very authentic taste but also doesn't make the meals necessarily cheap. The assorted German grilled sausages were the absolute winner last night. They were washed down with some big glasses full of German Pils.

The kaesespaetzle was ok but with all the oil dripping out of it from the cheese and the meal itself it looked almost like a heart attack on a plate! With the very good tasting cheese though, it was a still a good dish although I haven't found Kaesespaetzle yet in Thailand that satisfied my needs like it did in Germany! Although this was good, the search continues.

My wife's first encounter with trout, although she wasn't too impressed, I rated the trout pretty good! A good butter sauce and great potatoes came with it.

By this time I was stuffed to the max but my wife somehow managed to order and eat a Black Forest Ice sundae and I must admit that after tasting it, this was one of the best sundaes ever!

If you plan to eat here during a visit to Bangkok, make sure you make a reservation, although it's a rather big place, it does tend to fill up. You can also sit outside, which is nice. It was interesting and also good to see that there were not only Thai wife's with their German or in my case with their Dutch hubbies, but that there were also plenty of Thai parties eating there. In fact, our (Thai) friend that we invited immediately made a reservation for tomorrow, Wednesday, to go back and have dinner with his father and sister!

Enjoy, I can highly recommend this restaurant!
