The food is utterly bad, the ambiance exceptionally noisy. Local friends brought us here, and they sure were embarrassed. We could barely eat the food. The chicken was the skinniest ever on a food table!

We were in Bangkok for three nights and this restaurant in River City was right next to our hotel. We ate here all three nights because the quality of the food was excellent and the service very good. A great position to sit and watch the boats on the river and people watch.

Ok tasting food - at best. Nice staff. But way too expensive. There is nothing terribly wrong with this place. But there is nothing very good about it either. And did I mention it was overpriced?

As they are putting the finishing touches on this big new complex, The River City Shopping Complex, next to The Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel, we decided to check out a new restaurant, at that location, with views of the River. We had a lovely table on the outside deck to watch the boats go by and enjoy the warm evening... More

A good place to escape the noise of the city and have a relaxing drink. Has a nice terrace right next to the river. Service was attentive and the prices, while higher than most places, still reasonable. Pity we only discovered it on our last night.

Decided on tapas after riding the boat, noticed this place, glad i did. My sister and I sat on the patio and enjoyed the river scenes and the great tapas. The drinks were excellant, too. The staff very informative, friendly, service was prompt. Close to shopping.

This is another great bar and restaurant on the river, although it does not serve draft beer - which apparently some European men like. It is a nice comfortable bar with a good selection of food and drinks.

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.
