Soi 20 (Soi Sai Nam Phueng) is blessed with some really good restaurants. It is a bit short on bars though. This is what you find as you walk down the street:

Bei Otto (beiotto.com)
Bei Otto is a German delicatessen, wine bar and restaurant established in 1984. This is a high quality establishment and undoubtedly the place to eat German food in the big Mango. Many of the restaurants in the city buy their bread and cold meat here, and you can do the same. It’s open from 8am to 10pm every day. You can also eat and drink there. There is an extensive menu of German food, beer and wine. The food ranges from sandwiches priced at around 125 Thai Baht through to full meals such as Veal and Beer stew with mashed potatoes priced at 725 Thai Baht. This is the place to go if you are yearning for German classics like port knuckle or currywurst.
