All tourists should go to Tawandang brewery, not so much for the beer (it is OK, but not more than that),or the food (enormous rations of Pig Knuckle - but also a lot of Thai food), but for the entertainment. It is so weird with a total mix of all kinds of music and dancing. Best thing was a fantastic piece of music accompanied on big screens by an old black and white movie with elephants. Tawandang is almost only visited by Thai people, but foreigners could get an experience for life here.

A pal who lives and works in Bangkok took us here describing it a a a German beer hall - I think he left the rest of the description as a surprise.

It's a big venue, with two floors and a central stage. Somehow it's a restaurant, a concert venue and a party place all in one.

It was packed as a big band was playing and we were there for the cabaret/warm up show. The food order was taken promptly and food arrived just as the show began.

Food first - excellent on the whole with only the spring rolls being less than fantastic. Good sized portions and some great flavours. The German beer was delicious and came in a range of sizes up to a litre with a choice of Pilsner, dark or wheat beer.

The cabaret was brilliantly bizarre with songs from titanic to a version of sex bomb by Tom jones and then thai songs from single artists to glee style group performances - some bizarre costumes and stage performances (the bare but ticked thai boxer was a personal favourite) but it never stopped being great fun and very entertaining.

95% of the audience were thai so if you want to see how Bangkok Thais enjoy themselves on a night out this is the place.

Highly recommended but prepare to be bemused and entertained isn equal measures.

A local friend took my family & I here on the first night of our first visit to Bangkok. What a fantastic place! I was impressed from the start after being greeted at the entrance where bookings are recorded on a giant blackboard wall. The place was packed and had a great atmosphere. The on stage shows were very entertaining. The food was great - I tried Tom Yum Goong soup for the first time and loved it. Service was fantastic. Would definitely return here if ever in Bangkok again. It was a great night out and enjoyed by all - even some hard to please children! Thanks Kamol!
