We ate here with 5 people. The service was not good, they forgot half of our order and when asked they said it wasn't ordered at all. The quality of the meat and the food in general were below our standards. There was also (too much) mint in the dishes. Our waiter wasn't interested in our table at all, he... More

My husband and a friend came across this place last year on a food walking tour and said he would take the family this year. So off we went up and down the St. The place has changed so much due to a fire. We really like the Décor. Yes sometimes a little hard to speak with the staff but... More

Fantastic clean restaurant with good service. The crispy duck was great and came quickly with the necessary pancakes, plum sauce and spring onions. About £15 so not cheap for bangkok but worth it.

Nice interior, but the food and service just didn't do it for me. Taste was bland at best, service was unfriendly and uninterested.

They have amazing dimsum - found them through our Bangkok Food Walking Tour - went back four times - really really good stuff! They also have an outlet in Terminal 21 so no need to go all the way to Chinatown for this.

Two people go out for dinner. I order a dish. My friend orders a dish. They get their meal, I don't ? As a server how do you not recall writing it down as you drop it off. You took the order 5 minutes ago. Guess the service remarks are true.

This is just a place to eat, not a real restaurant. Simple interior without any charisma. Service crew dont even know their own menu. How could they - it has got 12 pages. Believe me, you dont need to go around china town, they claim to have everything here :) Anyway, food is okay.

The staff doesn't speak very good English and it is hard to make yourself clear. Eventually, the food was good, but my friends dish was missing and later on it appeared that the dish wasn't available. Also, when we ordered desert, they forgot us. The staff was really slow and not very helpfull. Thankfully the food tasted good.

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.
