We're here on our last night of what has been a fantastic time in Bangkok so wanted somewhere nice for our final dinner. We'd been up and down the river in the day, doing the temple run, and stopped at the Mandarin Oriental for lunch. More about that in a separate review. After lunch, we wandered back toward the Central... More

I have been coming here for over twenty years, since the hotel was built in fact and I have always enjoyed eating here. On this occasion we had lunch and sat outside adjacent to the fast flowing, busy river. We started with two fresh fruit juices and followed with Pad Thai and Chicken Rice, both delicious.

Even the dessert corner was extremely impressive and delicious. The selection was overwhelming, as we wanted to try everything without getting full too soon! The Shangri-la... More

Next2 Cafe in the Shangri-La hotel has one of the best buffets in Bangkok. The evening buffet is extensive with great selections of sushi, seafood, salads, Indian, Thai and continental dishes. If the weather is nice call ahead for a reservation outside on the deck overlooking the Chao Praya river which is beautiful in the evening.

As a hotel buffet venue next2 is not to bad . They cook meats to order which is a nice thing. And the seafood selection is quite wide. Also the good thing if you are staying in the hotel or there for a conference, as I was, they vary some of the dishes each day which is a good touch

Ate here 3 times during my visit, excellent choice on the al-a-cart menu and great service, outside terrace overlooking the river, perfect for a romantic dinner.

This has got to be one of life's greatest pleasures sitting by the river eating the most sumptuous breakfast. Do yourself a favour and do this once in your life - you won't want to leave.
