We stopped at this place as it was full of Chinese and Thai people eating (always a good sign!) Service was good. Dinner altogether was about 450baht for. Starter, 2 mains, veg fish dish and beer so quite reasonable!! Food was tasty and authentic Chinese food. Tasty veg dishes and the meat was good too - lots of flavour in... More

Sunday afternoon, not very busy. I was ignored until I asked for a table. I sat amidst the dishes of the previous diner for 5 minutes, then went to the desk, leaned around the girl slumped there and helped myself to a menu. She hurried to clear my table and demanded my order. I asked for time to open the... More

We went to Yaowarat on Chinese New Year 2015. The restaurant was very busy. The menu in Thai and English was easy to read. The shrimps with cream, fried vegetable, and black bean buns are delicious. The dim sum is so-so. The food prices were cheap.

The best thing I can say is that its cheap. The dim sum at 25 Baht a portion is best avoided. We both had the grilled duck which is good.Its served on a bed of green vegetables. Portions are large, so order the small size for 120 Baht. There are three sizes. I had the medium which was a little... More

We loved all the tasty dim sum, particularly the steamed Char Sui Bao. The seating area is simple but the staff were inviting and the food was lovely! It had a great atmosphere and it was one of the highlights of our time in Bangkok. In all seriousness do you do international delivery? :)

This restaurant looked like a good place to stop by on the trek through Chinatown, but that was a mistake, at least in terms of the quality of dim sum I was presented with - the portions meager, the quality inferior, cloying and inappropriate flavoring, and slightly gooey, completely inappropriate for what should have been presented.

Hungry for lunch on an unusually grey day in Bangkok, we fell into The Canton House on the edge of China Town and had a hearty, great value lunch of dim sum and fried rice. Nothing hugely special but perfectly lovely dim sum.
