This restaurant is in the middle of Chinatown and was recommended in the Lonely Planet. It on,y has about 7 tables bout has air con and seems very clean. We ate at lunchtime and the food was very tasty and plenty of it. Don't be put off by the lane it is down, it's certainly worth a visit

Found this recommended in Lonely Planet - a nightmare to find - basically in an alleyway off a canal street running between Chakrapher and Charrapawet - a Sikh man showed us then we were fine Visited 2 days running Do not expect plush, stylish - it is an alleyway eatery BUT delicious

This is a pretty good hole-in-wall Indian place near Sean Fest in Thonburi. They also deliver on Food Panda. I love Indian food generally, and I am really happy with this place. I've tried about 10 different dishes and they are full of complex flavor. The nan bread is gigantic and freshly made (and less fluffy than the U.S.-Indian version)... More

We reached Siam mall food court and saw the banners for this restaurant right besides the escalators. Craving for Indian food , we quickly rushed to this place.. The wait for the food after the order was around 30 minutes.. The menu is expensive and after 30 minutes of waiting , the food served to us was pathetic and below... More

The menu is good but the food was served cold and the portions were tiny. There are far better Indian restaurants in Bangkok than this so unless you are at Siam Paragon and absolutely must have an Indian then I would avoid this place. You also feel like you are sitting in an airport

We had ate here last night. Chicken Tikka Masala, a lamb dish and naan. The naan was thick and heavy. The chicken was just okay - not much flavour, but decent quality chicken at least. The lamb was mostly gristle and fat, with shards of bones and tiny ones hiding throughout the meal. I was petrified I'd bite onto one... More

Less than good tasting food, all dishes in combination tasted the same, mint chutney tasted sour instead of spicy and tandoori chicken was undercooked. High prices for Bangkok and the area - similar to US prices without the good service or quality. The naan was thick as a brick. Avoid if possible- as someone said, to top it all off... More

We visited Siam Paragon mall today and after shopping it was time for lunch. But after going around the food court we were at loss what to take as we are vegetarians. We were just beginning to resign to the fact that we may have to depend on ice creams etc. Suddenly we could ourselves standing in front of this... More

Staying in Chinatown / Yaowarat

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During the day, the main street and its small alleyways are filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and all-day markets. The real action, however, happens after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
