Unfortunately my experience with this restaurant was at closing. Nonetheless the food was without doubt of high caliber and the service was still more than hospitable but I know a staff waiting to go home when I see one and I one hundred percent relate to their perspective. So with that in mind I kind of rushed through the menu... More

The river view of Bangkok is calming, except for the busy long tail boats. This resto was awarded Best Buffet sometimes ago, but we just got a chance to try. The food was plenty and good taste, but desert was better, or perhaps we were too full for food with the time. Staff were okay, make a lots of noise... More

This is right on the Chao Praya River inside the Shangri-La Hotel. I just had the french onion soup which was only o.k. Not what I expected, but it was good. Very pleasant atmosphere, they have inside dining as well as waterside dining. They offer a buffet earlier in the evening. Prices are what you would expect for a hotel.

On the morning of the 14th of April the staff was gossipping about us, especially about my girlfriend. Unfortunately they were not intelligent enough to see she is Thai and can understand their words. All in all the staff is not very polite or attentive there even some are but they are definitively in a minority. Dirty plates at the... More

The dinner buffet is breathtaking. A wide range of options to choose: Thai, Indian, sushi, seafood, salad, continental... but the best is yet to come... desserts! Fruit, cakes, cupcakes, macarons, sweets and the best ice-creams I've eaten in a long time. All these accompained by great views of chaoprahya river. 1900baht pp + services & taxes.

Food selection was great and I liked that they would change some entrees every day. There were Japanese, Chinese, Indian, and Western choices - there's just lots of choices for everybody! I highly recommend their desserts, too. Everything was just so delicious. If they don't have what you are craving for, they would be happy to whip up something for... More

Had a great evening at Next2 Café. The outside areas has a great view down the river. The food offered on the buffet is excellent. The variety of European and Asian dishes is very large, and the fresh seafood selection is possibly the best I have encountered in Bangkok. cannot wait to go back.
