Both breakfast and lunch buffets include a wide selection of international cuisine, including all types of seafood you can imagine. Excellent setting, friendly staff, beautiful view of the river... simply fantastic.

The restaurant was nice and have seat available both indoor and outdoor. The indoor seat would be ease for you to get the food at buffet line and chill with the air-conditioning. Whereas the indoor seat may get you a bit hot sometimes if there's no wind.But you will get the nice view by the river and see the hotel... More

We had lunch at this restaurant with a great view of the river. The menu was good as was the food quality.The cost of the meal was reasonable although the service was a little bit hit and miss.

We ate in this café style restaurant beside the river a couple of times, apart from taking breakfast there. My wife and I ate a la carte as the evening buffet was extensive, and we could have eaten very well, but we prefer to eat a lighter meal in the evening. The first time I had Pad Thai, which I...

We were staying at the Shangri La and visited the Next2 Cafe for lunch whilst waiting for our taxi to the airport. Whilst it was very nice, you could have been in any high end hotel anywhere in the world and when we were there the clientele were primarily Americans and business people. Good food, good service but not why... More

This is a gourmets paradise, the team here are held in place by a great Australian executive chef, and the food is the highest standard possible. Freshly cooked steaks, Foie gras cooked to perfection under the beady eye of the sous chef. the salads are fresh,vibrant and colourful, the food is of full international delicacies and the curries are sublime....

One of the buffet line that offers the most variety in BKK. Food was fresh and decent but didn't earn the "wow" factor. Good view at sunset. Good and professional service. Discounts offered for many credit cards call the restaurant directly to check.

For breakfast or lunch this buffet outshines many buffets available in Bangkok . Its not expensive and offers a huge array of foods to choose from mostly oriental inspired. The best thing is the setting on the banks of the river . The service is efficient but dont come here if you are in a hurry , take it at... More

We only ate once here with that being lunch. Service wasn't as quick as that which we'd experienced in the Krungthep Wing of the hotel but the food we had was good. The location is hard to beat, on the banks of Chao Phraya River, so you get to see life passing you by, which can also make the setting... More
