good real German food, a nice place for a short break or for a nice afternoon with friends. I know that restaurant many years and stay there many times.

I visited Bei Otto for first, (and last time ever), the day after the gradual lifting of the lockdown in Bangkok, which allowed for the re-opening of restaurants serving food, without alcohol, in open non-airconditioned areas only. After 6 weeks of self isolation I was...really looking forward to some quality restaurant food. Once seated in a 'courtyard' area, I ordered the braised beef with red cabbage and mash. The food arrived and was clearly reheated, cooked, I would guess, many days previous. It was terrible, particularly when measured against the cost. The single plate of food, plus 1 small water, 700 baht, or in BKK, 2 days minimum wage. The real cost of the fare would be more like 70 baht. I paid and just left, seeing no one of any standing, except a blameless Thai waitress, having paid the equivalent of 2 waiting staff for 1 day. It was such a bad experience, it has propelled me to make my first every observation to Trip Advisor. The daylight ripping off of foreigners in BKK continues unabated. In spite of the total collapse of tourism, along with the shock of the pandemic lockdown, no moral awakening seems to have occurred. Restaurant goers want quality, freshness and value, regardless of where it is in the world. That's what will be supported and succeed!More

We were very surprised to find such a charming and quaint German-style delicatessen and restaurant tucked away on this Soi. We had breakfast here twice. The strawberry jam is fabulous. A great place to relax and chat with friends or read your newspaper.

We ate here a few times last week and none of the food items ordered ever disappoint. I can particularly recommend the Gulaschsuppe, a hearth stew. The Wurstsalat and the Weißwürschte. The interior, cleanliness, menus and look and feel is always spotless, clean and presentable....Sadly, service team is lethargic and slow. They don’t clear the tables, lack charm and finesse. They like to hide inside the restaurant even if there are plenty of tables on the terrace and no guests inside, which on multiple occasions needed us to go in and pay on where we would’ve loved a dessert, coffee and another drink. We will still come back for the food always.More

Took our family of 12 people on New Years Day and had a great selection of the German favorites along with some tasty German beer.

First night was a Sunday and they had a special Pork Roast, which was actually belly pork, but was lovely served with special dumplings and salad, also had the vegetable soup. The next night, I did not look too closely at the menu and had...a beef dish, which was ok but not up to their normal high standard, when the bill can it 660 bht which is a lot in Bangkok. The bill with soup and strudel was 1250 making it my most expensive meal during my three weeks in the country. The staff are friendly and speak good English, they have a lot of Chinese & Japanese clients. I eat here, especially when I flying home next day, because I know the hygiene and food standard is very high. Never had any problems here.More

Great taste of German pork knuckle. Let's say all dishes are perfect tastes. Soup is nice. Sausage is great. Bakery also fantastic for this original German foods shop. Highly recommend. Atmosphere is lovely and warm together with draught fresh beer. So perfect combination

Germans love their Currywurst and Schweinshaxe and you can find it all over the world. The also enjoy beer and music during Oktoberfest and even in Bangkok you can get a taste. The menu is very very German and they come out in good tasty...and quantity. Service is good to. I found the prices to be quite OK for what you get. A nice place to be a German.More

Have been knowing and visiting this place since 1999. In the previous years, though, we feel more and more unsure about this place due to its instability of quality. On our last visit (27.10.2019), the single male staff ruined the day right from the start!...He "banged" almost everything which created an unwelcoming message. He almost threw the menu at us and kicked the door to get passed to the kitchen Surprised to see this attitude in this restaurant. After the other female staff came to the rescue, things went better. The food tasted quite nice, even though you actually won't fry pork knuckle in Germany. The bakery nearby was the only one thing Bei Otto nailed, better staff and the bread is great. Might consider visiting the restaurant again (?) The bakery for sure :)More

lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll
rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While
the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of
entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys)

Hi Hiraad, to get inside with a wheelchair will be difficult, but it is still possible. The beer garden is without any problem accessible for wheelchair users.
