Chef Matthew Geng performs a sophisticated take on classic Chinese dishes, all presented in a creative manner. Some highlights include the Braised Abalone and Pork Belly, but the Peking Duck is the star of the show. Diners can sit at the counter to watch chefs prepare their meal or eat at one of their intimate tables for more privacy.

    For old-school Chinese food, head to one of the most popular restaurants in Chinatown: Yim Yim Restaurant. The restaurant has been around for over 80 years, serving an array of tasty dishes in its modest but clean settings. We recommend trying Chinese-style sashimi and the ham with goatskin dipped in rice vinegar if you’re looking for something unforgettable. The other items on the menu are also mouthwatering. The fresh crab claws with ginger will truly delight your taste buds, while the steamed fish in fermented soy bean sauce is perfect for sharing with friends.

Whilst their meals are modern, they embrace age-old cooking techniques to stay true to their heritage. Inside, the interior is timeless and elegant. Moreover, the dining room features a pagoda-inspired roof, dark wood furniture and multi-coloured lacquered tiles. Their service is also top-notch, with attentive and experienced staff.

    Mei Jiang

    Located in the Peninsula Bangkok, Mei Jiang is a Chinese dining spectacle. Here, Chef Jackie Ho prioritises presentation as much as flavour. Thus, Cantonese fare is dramatically served through “thick clouds of mist or beneath heavy glass bells”. Some highlights include the signature Tea-smoked Chicken with Crispy Rice. Alternatively, opt for the Stir-Fried Phuket Lobster, a fusion of Chinese and Thai ingredients. Their menu is seasonal and so specialities vary per time of year. Finally, to compliment your meal try their tea pairings to “further elevate the aroma and taste borne of the wok”.

However, their Boston Lobster Egg Noodle is another popular choice. The venue is stylish, with dim lighting and tones of traditional Chinese colours, red and gold. This Chinese restaurant is always full of locals, attesting to their authentic flavours and overall top-notch dining experience.

    Chinese Restaurants to order comforting takeaway
    Click image for larger version  Name:	Chinese-Food.jpg Views:	5 Size:	72.3 KB ID:	784

    Chinese food is known for hitting the spot, especially when you need to calm down and indulge in some form of comfort after a long day of work and the constant bombardment of upsetting news regarding the outside world. Somehow, scarfing down a handful of dim sum, or tucking into a plate of kung pow chicken or even spicy mala stir-fry lifts our spirits and makes everything a bit better. Thankfully, Chinese restaurants across the city offer delivery. And we’ve made a list of the best ones.

    An army of architects and interior designers may have injected luxury into Bangkok Mariott Marquis Queen’s Park - or the former Imperial Queen’s Park to those who’ve stayed around long enough - but one thing that hasn’t changed about the Sukhumvit 22 venue is the fact that it’s always been a haven for gastrophiles. The latest establishment to join the hotel’s squad of culinary cocoons - Thai restaurant Siam Tea Room, gigantic buffet hall Goji Kitchen and straight-from-Nagoya Soba Factory - is The Pagoda, a Chinese restaurant that purveys authentic Cantonese fare at its best. Pagoda is set in an eclectic dining room decorated with interiors inspired by Chinese pagodas (tiered ones with eaves, not to be mixed up with the pagodas found at Thai temples), which are believed to bless diners with power and wealth. The vast dining hall can accommodate up to more than 150 diners, while those looking for privacy can opt for one of the seven private rooms, each one named after a Chinese flower. They have a room for every requirement, from a small alcove for up to ten people, to a bigger room for 20 guests equipped with a giant table with an automatic turning feature, to connecting rooms with two tables so kids can dine separate and won’t need to sit frozen, sandwiched by relatives they only meet once a year.

    The kitchen is helmed by Hong Kong native Chef Oscar Pun, who spent the past two decades working at notable Michelin-starred restaurants in Hong Kong and Singapore. Chef Pun whips up Cantonese dishes with much respect to original recipes, using spices and seasoning imported from China. Apart from noteworthy dim sum selections, Chinese food lovers should try the Golden Chicken (THB 1,280), Pun’s interpretation of Hangzhou’s Chicken Beggar. The story goes that a beggar stole a whole chicken from a millionaire’s kitchen. Fearing he would get caught, he stuffed the chicken with herbs, wrapped it in lotus leaves and covered it up with clay before throwing the bird into the fire. The chicken turned out to be juicy, aromatic and delectable. Pun’s version, however, replaces clay with bread dough, and diners are invited to make a wish and hit the bread dough three times until it breaks to reveal the meat inside.Any meal at an upscale Cantonese restaurant wouldn’t be complete without Peking duck (THB 1,600). Here, the duck is served Hong Kong-style in three courses. The first course serves slices of crispy duck skin, duck meat, thin rice pancakes and sweet gravy. The second course plates up barbecued duck thighs served with plum sauce, while the third course involves stir-fried duck meat with chili and shallots. Other menu highlights include deep-fried cod fish with egg white (THB 980), a surprisingly perfect combination of crispiness and tenderness, dreamy crispy roast pork and a selection of soups. Not sure what to order? No worries. Restaurant manager Piyanan “Pum” Karawa will always be around to greet you with a smile and recommend the best dishes for every occasion. She can even suggest exclusive Chinese tea blends to complement your meal.

    Wah Lok

    Established more than three decades ago, Singapore restaurant Wah Lok has gained respect, as well as awards, for its exquisite creations that trumpet authentic Cantonese fare presented in modern ways. The elegant dining room is the signature restaurant of Carlton Hotel Singapore, an independent hotel brand in the island city-state. Carlton is expanding its presence throughout the rest of Southeast Asia, and its first property outside of Singapore is in Bangkok, right in the heart of Sukhumvit. This also means that Wah Lok has come to the city, giving Bangkokians the chance to get a real taste of this renowned restaurant’s offerings. An open kitchen takes up one side of the Wah Lok in Bangkok, giving guests a clear view of the restaurant’s dedicated cooking troupe, each of whom is credited for the amazing culinary turns brought to the table.

    These include an array of scrumptious - and supremely photogeni - dim sum. Served during lunch, these tasty bites include Steamed Lobster and Scallop Dumplings (THB 180), Deep-fried Taro with Seafood (THB 120), and Steamed Crystal Skin Shrimp Dumplings with Beetroot (THB 140). But our hands-down pick is the Baked Barbecued Pork Bun (THB 120), a moreish treat that stuffs sweet and smoky pork into a soft bun with a crusty crumble on top; and the Steamed Vegetarian Dumplings with Bamboo Fungus in Truffle Oil (THB 120), an extremely aromatic morsel that exemplifies east-meets-west. The restaurant is also up to snuff when it comes to its à la carte menu. Go for the Crispy Prawn with Wasabi Dressing (THB 580) and Crispy Fish Skin with Salted Egg Yolk (THB 250). These two dishes certainly whet your appetite. But make sure to pair these with Wah Lok’s pride - a delicious XO sauce that comes with your chosen protein. (We recommend the sautéed scallop.) Unsurprisingly, the restaurant’s Peking Duck (THB 1,600) doesn’t disappoint, thanks to a unique egg dough that used to make the required wraps for the dish. A perfect meal-ender is the Chinese Herbal Jelly (THB 140), a refreshing dessert that combines chilled mango cream, sago, and pomelo. At first glance, Wah Lok may seem like another restaurant in a high-end setting that serves pricey fare. But one bite is all you need to realize that every baht spent at this restaurant is definitely worth it.

    Wok Star Express
    Those who have been to or lived in the States, or have consumed a lot of American media must have seen images of a farang holding up a small white paper box in one hand while awkwardly gripping chopsticks with another. In this box is tasty, stir-fried Chinese takeout fare like kung pao chicken or chow meinthat’s been given the American treatment. Now Bangkokians can have the same takeout box experience, courtesy of Wok Star Express, the latest delivery-based American-Chinese food stall run by American entrepreneur Kirk Stucker.“Here, it’s all about the original way to serve Chinese food in America,” says Stucker. He’s hoping to bank on the nostalgic sensibilities of those who’ve had the experience and find comfort in eating their Chinese takeout from a box.

    The menu includes a wide array of dishes, from stir-fried items with hot steamed rice to sizzling rice and noodles. The most popular dish would be the kung pao chicken(THB 220), which pairs deep-fried chicken drizzled with flavorful black sauce with cashew nuts.The noodle options are also favorites. Choose between the chow mein noodlestopped with various vegetables and your choice of meat like roasted duck, chicken, barbecued pork or beef (price starts at THB 160), or the Singapore noodles (THB 240). Other Chinese staples also make it to the menu and shouldn’t go unnoticed. There’s the sweet and sour pork (THB 190), which comes with a “banging” sauce, and Mongolian beef tenderloin (THB 270).No American-Chinese takeout menu would be complete without orange chicken (THB 200), a breaded chicken dish with a thick sweet sauce that’s purely that’s credited to Americans. They also have a lemon sauce alternative if you want your chicken more tangy than sweet. Wok Star Express is located in Thanon Pan in Sathorn and has a small area for walk-in diners (limited seats available). Delivery is available on all food delivery service platforms every day (except Tuesdays) from 11:30 to 22:00.Whether you’re an expat, a one-time student in the US, or just a Bangkokian who’s curious about American-Chinese food, Wok Star Express is here to wok you hard.
