Terrific food, genial host. The selection is amazing. I can make a meal on the salads alone...I often cannot sample all the hot dishes as I am full after getting my fresh produce fix. I have brought many friends to Auf Der Au...all have been delighted. My most recent visitors are German and they raved about the quality and authenticity... More

As I do not live too far from this restaurant, my wife and I frequent this delicious and amazing German buffet, with such a wonderful variety of dishes served each time we go. The cheesecake and deserts are the best in town, and the creamed spinach is out of this world. But I go for the pig knuckles which are... More

WOW. When you want home cooked German food this is the place to go. The buffet is extremely good value even by Thai standards. We all went on a Monday night when schnitzel is included and I think the buffet may be reduced in size a little. However there is a wide range of hot and cold German dishes, plenty... More

Had dinner this evening for the first time and most impressed with the deserts, all home made except the ice cream. Food was delicious and fresh. Only the decor was very basic but then again, didn't go for that. The proprietor and his wife are exceptionally charming and no doubt, work very hard.

Sorry if you were not satisfied. I do not understand your critism and I think you confuse anythink. Our buffet has a plenty of choice so it is of course possible that something late is missing. But in the last few days i can not remember. More

We had heard good reports about Auf Der Au from people who do the buffet circuit in Chiang Mai so we booked for the Sunday Lunch Buffet at Bht 269. Everything had a nice home cooked taste with plenty of choices from Roast Chicken and Pork,Schnitzels,Fish, nice vegetables like creamed spinach and mashed potatoes. Also plenty of salads with cold... More
