“Not so Crispy Duck - Great view over BKK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Situated on the 36th floor of the Chatrium Hotel this Chineese restaurant offers great view over the city. Sadly the Crispy Duck where not crispy at all ... and the food was almost cold. Quite highly priced as well. There are lots of better choices for Chineese food. For the view - it is awesome.

“High-class dining really high up in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Silver Waves on the 36th Floor of Chatrium Hotel in Bangkok not only gives you a magnificent view of the Chao Phraya River and the capital below, but also delivers fantastic Chinese cuisine.

Our group was given a table in the restaurant's VIP enclave. All of us were stunned by the gorgeous view of Bangkok around us, even on a rainy day. The restaurant made full use of the views with floor-to-ceiling windows.

But, of course, the view alone does not make for a good restaurant. The food is most important, and I am happy to report Silver Waves came up aces in all departments. Our Beijing Duck was crispy and fat free, and simply delicious. It is likely the best in town. Our Dim Sum dishes were fresh and filling, but not spectacular. The duck meat with bell peppers and the fried rice with salted fish were superb. Service was lightning fast and very friendly. It was just a superb lunch all around.

I would totally recommend Silver Waves for anyone wanting to try Chinese with a view. It is a departure from the mall-located and no-view Chinese restaurants you find so often in Bangkok.

“Get in there!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Forget expensive drinks at the State Tower, this beauty of a restaurant has a view to die for. Not over priced or snobby. Finally a place that respects its clients and doesn't take them for a ride because of the view.

Servers are great and the food almost forgot..SPOT ON.
Suggestion take a Spa at the Chatrium and then go to Silver waves....she will love you.

Well done everyone.

“Chinese with the most splendid view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

We are frequent diners at the River Barge but have only visited Silver Waves on the 36th floor of Chatrium a couple of yimes we have missed a lot of great food, friendly and efficient service and the most spectacular view of Bangkok-thonburi, the Chao Phraya River. A must for food aficionado and those who simply enjoy a breathtaking view

“Great view- average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

This restaurant locates on one of the building in Chartium Hotel, not far from Sathorn. Book a table by the window. The view is gorgeous. We had a dim-sum lunch. The food was fine but I found it's pretty average dim sum compared with other places I've tried in Bangkok. The service is great. Another good thing, the place was not so busy during our lunch so we didn;t get bother by noise like many other dim-sum place.
