If you are looking for places to eat German food in Udon Thani there are a couple of restaurants that cater specifically for German food tastes. That said, anyone expecting to find wall-to-wall Bavarian cuisine in Udon Thani will find their dining options slimmer than an Apple smartphone.
Delight Internationales Restaurant is a straight-out pick for German food in Udon Thani, and Schweine Dieter is a Saturday only restaurant that is very highly rated. Harmony Bar & Restaurant has some German dishes on its menu, but those aside, you’ll be hard pushed to find schnitzel, currywurst and frikadellen on many Udon Thani bar and restaurant menus.
