We decided to try out the famous Saturday brunch at Lord Jim. The setting the was nice, and we were lucky enough to get a table next to the window facing the river on a clear sunny day. Surprisingly, there was no outdoor sitting although that is partly understandable given Bangkok's usually hot weather. Everything was as should be. There... More

Excellent service that you would expect from the mandarin group. It's not the biggest buffet but has it's elegance and quality. I found most of the food to be decent, sushi is a little bit disappointing though.

We had the pleasure of eating at Lord Jim's in November and were absolutely blown away. As expected, the setting was perfect with the river view, the room elegant and the menu out of this world.

I was treated to the buffet lunch here on my last day in Bangkok. I know it wasn't cheap by Thai standards but the range and quality of food was amazing. I don't think a western country could put on such a wide ring and top quality spread as nobody would pay what they would be charging! The food included... More

Sitting at a table, watching life on the Chao Phraya go by while eating all the offering of the buffet is very decadent. For the non seafood lovers there are many choices. While not cheap, it is a fun luncheon. Call ahead and ask for a window table.

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
