We love eating at Tawandang German Brewery. It is the closest thing to Vegas-style entertainment that we have found in Bangkok. The food is very reasonably priced and the show is FREE! We find ourselves seated there at least once per month. While they do serve fried pork knuckle (and lots of it!), this is a high-end Thai restaurant with German-style lager, dunkel, and weizen micro-brewed beer.
There are three locations in Bangkok. Our favorite is the newest location north-west of Bangkok near Chaengwattana Road.
While we often just pop in and take whatever seats are available, a reservation is advised on Fridays and Saturdays. They often have special events and concerts, so it is best to check to avoid disappointment. The easiest way to make reservations is to simply send a message on the website Reservation Form. There are convenient maps at the bottom of the page to help you choose the location nearest to you.
The restaurants are very large. They seat between 500 and 2000 people depending on the location.
The first time that we went to Tawandang, we arrived promptly at opening time (5 PM). We were seated, ordered our food, and enjoyed a terrific Thai music performance. It was getting close to 8:30 PM and we were preparing to leave, very satisfied with our dinner and show when the curtain was lowered. A loud, booming voice announced that it was time for the show to begin!
We could not believe it! We settled back to see what was next. The show kept getting better and better. As the night progressed, the music got louder and the crowd got wilder. By 10 PM, many people were up and dancing. It was a blast. We left around 11 PM and the party was still going strong.
On our next visit we aimed to make it to the reported 1 AM closing time – we did not make it. Now we generally try to arrive no earlier than 6:30 PM and leave around 10 PM.
The shows that they deliver are spectacular. The food that they serve is delicious (I highly recommend the deep fried sea bass). According to Tawandang’s website, their success is attributed to its basic philosophy:
- Best Beer
- Best Cuisine
- Best Entertainment
- Best Ambience
From our experience, they deliver!
