Expert review of Tawandang Microbrewery

A hopping restaurant with live entertainment that’s great for a group party.

An innovative Asian style microbrewery, Tawandang is reminiscent of a large German beer hall with Thai-style entertainment and cuisine. I like the fact that Tawandang has a raucous and fun feel to it.

Food and drink: 

This was the first restaurant in Thailand to pair German beer with modern Thai cuisine. The deep fried pork knuckle with spicy sauce melts in your mouth while the ‘three taste (sweet, sour and spicy) seabass’ was a taste sensation. There are a few German inspired dishes too, like the mixed grilled sausages. Beer comes in a tower of one to two litres and can be placed at the end of your table.

Ambience: 

This is an all singing, all dancing establishment, literally. There’s a live Thai band performing most nights, look out of it’s your birthday – you’ll be on stage before you can say ‘let me finish that pork knuckle’.

Service: 

Staff are friendly and efficient.

Location: 

The Suntec City restaurant is the newest locale in this chain, so as a consequence it’s crammed with office workers during the week. Esplanade, Promenade and City Hall MRT stations are close by.

Price advice: 

The prices here are reasonable, as dishes are meant for sharing. The pork knuckle is $34, the three taste seabass $30 and a pot of tom yum soup is $28. So an average meal for four people including a glass of beer will set you back around $40-$50.

Tables to book: 

 

Other useful branches: 

There's another Tawandang Microbrewery on Dempsey Hill, see the website for details.
