Tasty

We were initially attracted to this venue because it was so busy. Both full of tourists and locals and we struggled to be seated. The service was quick and courteous and we enjoyed everything we ordered. The only thing is the veggie spring rolls aren't veggie.

We came here for lunch The food was pretty average, to below average and the portions were also average to below average. They increase prices it seems as well, the TA pictures show 16B per plate, but now it's 25B.... More

Wow! So I go on this guided food journey through China Town and our second stop was the Canton House. I was there when I first visited Bangkok in 2008 and never found it again. Already then I thought they were amazing. We had a selection of dim sums (pork, prawn and some other specialties) - all outstanding. The dim... More

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
