Delicious Shrimps with Cream and Black Bean Buns!

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.

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

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.

We were lucky to have one of their restaurants across from where we were staying (PhayaThai). Lots of dim sum to choose from, though when we got there at the end of lunch hour, they told us that some of our choices were not available anymore. The place was packed and we only had to wait about a minute or... More

We tried eating dumplings here, but they tasted too fat and very monotone. Afterwards we tried a few dumplings on the street, and they were much better. Very uncosy room and staff not over friendly.
