“When tired of Thai Cuisine.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I recently spent two weeks in Bangkok en route to Bhutan and I absolutely love and enjoy Thai food, especially Tom Yum Goong. However, occasionally everyone needs a change and if you develop an appetite for a different meal, head to cozy Bei Otto in Sukhumjvit Soi 20. My preference was to eat in the front bistro rather than the stuffy (and expensive) restaurant. The bistro offers a light menu, fantastic bread rolls, great salads and also tasty breakfasts and it represents better value.

“For Bangkok, good food, over average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Overall, it was quite a nice experience to eat German food in Bangkok. No fancy food. More like the average german "Gasthaus" style on the country side(in Germany).

The sausage platter and Wiener Schnitzel are good to eat here. Although a hot soup before is to be recommended.

But hey,... you also go for the ambient. ;)

“The place a German calls home.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I had deep fried camembert and a dark beer which I didn't remember what it was. The camembert wasn't as good as the one I had in Europe but certainly good enough for a second visit.

They serve quite a number of German beers. Beer lovers won't be disappointed.

Note: I visited this restaurant some time in 2010 but couldn't choose the correct date from the system.

“Not A Success”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We had been to Bei Otto before, about a year ago and had had a reasonable meal. So as we found ourselves in the twenties in Sukhumvit Road, we thought we would go again. Alas, we were, on the whole, disappointed. Service was very slow (we waited 45 minutes for our first course) and, apart from the head waitress, not particularly pleasant. The food was mixed. The pea soup was good and my wife and daughter were happy enough with their veal as a main course. I was unlucky in that I went for the goulash, which was terrible. The sauce tasted as though it had just come out of a tin and the chunks of meat were dry, tough and inedible. To cap it all we were charged over Bt.3000 (£60+) for two courses each and a couple of glasses of Singha beer.
The most expensive meal of our recent three week visit to Thailand and, without doubt, the worst.
