After running all over Bangkok on a tour each day we'd come home to the bar at Shaghai Mansion and I'd enjoy a cold Chang. The place was always cool and comfortable and the service is super attentive. The best deal is during happy hour for drinks. We ate a couple of meals during our stay and the food was... More

We stayed at Shangei Mansion in the heart of Chinatown and found ourselves grabbing drinks here after sight seeing for the day, or to relax listening to the live jazz music. The prices are certainly not cheap, but it is relaxing and the food was good when we did eat there one day instead of just drinks. A 10% service... More

Only popped in for a drink. Was surprised how modern and clean the bar was. Great atmosphere, firendly staff and good music. Prices average. Would return as a couple for a few drinks if I wanted a romantic evening.

Nice atmosphere in beautiful old hotel on second floor. Nice live jazz music and great atmosphere mask the mediocre food. We had Peking duck (skin first then stir fried with back pepper), black grouper (very small serving - not fresh) and we never received our third course pork bun.

We just returned from dinning at the cotton club, in The Shanghai Mansion Hotel Bangkok 481 Yaowarat Rd, Samphanthawong, Bangkok 10100, Thailand. We went to the cotton club for dinner.

We arrived here at 1130 when it opened. It was very quiet and we were initially the only ones in the restaurant. It is in a fantastic area of Chinatown near to the golden Buddha! This area is a must to explore. We ordered a range of dim sum. All were delicious and beautifully cooked. The BBQ pork dumplings and... More

The dim sum proved delicious and well-presented. There was a siaopao filled with creamy orange curry(?) that was especially memorable.The server (Nuey?) proved accommodating and shared helpful background behind the dim sum options. For the price range, you also get a main course entree AND dessert on top of the all you can eat dim sum. I found myself surprised... 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.
