Their amazing bread pudding; their fabulous view

Oh my. Viking Cruises put us in the Shangri La, and this is one of their restaurants. It borders the river -- and the peace, tranquility, joy of being riverside, watching the boats and barges go by, the birds alighting for treats, cannot be overstated.

If they don't serve what you are looking for then I don't know where else to do. This restaurant is on the first floor of the Shangri-La hotel and has an amazing buffet. Worth it when you can't make up your mind what you want - they seem to have it all.

Fantastic staff, nice mix of western and Thai food all at a very reasonable price. A perfect place (for a newbie to Thai food) to try something different and be suprised. Buffet and menu based options. Beautiful decor and location right on the river, you really could just sit there all evening!

We have our buffet dinner in here. The price is standard. There is a Thai live station, Indian station, Chinese, grill station include beef steak, foie gras, big shrimp, salmon, chicken and so on. Seafood on on ice is not much choices but is all fresh. Japanese station with sushi, sashimi and maki rolls. Salad bar and a cheese board,... More

Breakfast had a huge variety of quality western and Asian dishes. I was surprised that the coffee was so good. We had dinner there one night which was a bit mediocre but the setting was beautiful.

Recently spent 3 nights at the Shangri-la and visited Next2 for a dinner buffet and two lunch al la carte meals. I can honestly say the buffet was absolutely fantastic ! Having eaten the buffet just across the river at a 5 star hotel, Next2 was hands down the best . The vast array of different cuisines Thai, Indian, Middle... More

The location of this hotel restaurant right next to the Chao Praya river is good just for a drink or an informal meal. The menu and food are good and there is a good choice of drinks but the wine is a bit pricey, but what can one expect from the quality of a Shangri La restaurant? Service is very... More

We went for dining at Next2 upon arrival in Bangkok and decided to order from the menu. Food was terrible, service was poor. When I went inside, I discovered a huge buffet.... but come on a buffet...? This seems quite low end to me. price quality ratio not worth it. Go outside the hotel and grab some food from a... More
