My husband and I really enjoyed a meal here during our recent visit to Chinatown. Service was great, menu had great choice and was very reasonable prices. Definitely recommend for lunch if you are nearby :)

If you're after dim sum then this is the place to go - lots of choice and well priced. The surrounding stalls and outlets have a wide selection of very popular street food so if that's what you're after go elsewhere, but for dim sum and a seat in an air con restaurant with well priced food then come here....

The place is okay, but doesn't offer something special. The service is average. Try the local street food around the place.

Cheap but very tasty, and a good selection of Japanese, Chinese, Thai food and dim sum. Recommend beef with grapes.

This is a wonderful option in Chinatown, particularly for dim sum. A group of friends stopped here during a Chinatown food crawl and our meal was fantastic. We had three different steamed dumplings, some steamed buns, barbecued ribs, a standard dish of Thai cashew chicken, and some sautéed morning glory. Accompanied by tea or beer (whatever you've feeling that day),... More

I came here with my family (minus my sister) as my sister recommended this restaurant. It is right at the end (or right at the beginning of the main street in Chinatown depending on where you are walking from). Due to the Chinese New Year celebrations, this place was packed and we had to wait 10 mins to get our... More

The food here is great! Would recommend the dim sum, roast duck and chayote leaves! The only thing I can find wanting for this place is that the staff have a limited grasp of English, and it was quite a struggle to order, especially because the menu is very extensive.

Amazing dim sum! We ate here 3 times in the 24 hours we were in Bangkok. The service isn't amazing, but we ate our faces off for under $15 USD. They also did not have alcohol besides beer even though the menu said they did, so if you want wine or a cocktail, go across the street to The Shanghai... More

One of the few bad options during our week in Bangkok. Even the fried pork was mediocre. My soup was warm, not hot. They got our orders wrong. Service is not good either, they were sympathetic but not efficient at all. Do not recommend it.

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.
