I used to live un Bangkok and enjoyed this place where value for money was excellent. Three years after it is a complete different story. The quality of the food declined, the price exploded, there is now a 10% service charge and thea that used to be complementary is now charged. Should I say more? There are plenty of good... More

We went to this restaurant many times in the past. always ordered their famous dumplings and Szechuan Dan Dan noodles and fried rice, always happy with the standard of food. Unfortunately, for this trip , the restaurant was not as crowded as before , the food also was disappointing, service however remained very good.

Whenever we wanted to eat Xiao Long Bao, we would come here. They serve one of the most delicious Xiao Long Bao in Bangkok as the meat filling inside is very juicy. Our other favorite dishes include the La Mian, sweet and sour pork, gong bao chicken and sauté string beans. The pork and chicken are very tender and tasty.... More

I quite surprised with the quality of foods here. We ordered a few dishes including their signature Xiao Long Bao. We were disappointed. Never again

Consistent with Crystal Jade, food was very good. Everthing tasted like they should. It will not let you down. Service, on the other hand, is soul less, heartless, without smiles. Oh well, like I said, go for the food.

The location is very good, which is right smack in the middle of a popular tourist destination and next to a 5 star hotel. However, the place is crowded. So, may have to wait for table. Again, quite a typical chinese restaurant, which can be noisy too. However, this is a franchise restaurant. So, the menu is kind of similar... More

Nice restaurant & very good service but I think I am used to Hong Kong style Dim sum & this was just not what I have had in London. The Guylan was exceptional & so was the radish pastry. Generally the steamed pastry was too thick.

The Mian (we had Shanghai style) and xian long bo were excellent! Highly recommed this place if you're in the neighborhood. We also had the sesame seed pancakes with duck and pine nut filling, as well as the banana fritters - although beware of this last one - portions are gigantic! Nothing too memorable about the service or atmosphere but... More

not worth the effort of seeking this restaurant. Nothing wrong with it but why bother when there are so many similar ones. The other branch at Paragon is much better in all aspects.
