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.

Nice place, good food, large quantity for small price but you have to be patient. One hour for small dishes and a water.

nice place to chill out.... get those meaty meaty dishes will be worthy. For dim sum..all were good.......but avoid the melon ice blend drink as too much sugar added,if possible just plain ice water will be good there.

Great place for dim sum! We tried over a dozen and wasn't disappointed with any of them. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Staying in Chinatown / Yaowarat

Neighbourhood 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.
