Seems there are 2 restaurants along the road with same name. We tried this one and felt food was good. Can't comment for the other as we didn't try. Generally great meal with huge portions! We thoroughly enjoyed the food but pick your orders wisely...More

First time to Bangkok, went to China Town Scalia Shark Fins Restaurant based on good review. It's very disappointed, $2000 Baht for suckling pig which was chewy and not crispy at all. Fish, vegetable were average. Will not recommended to any of my friend.

Good food. Waiter can speak fluent Mandarin which is important for a Chinese restaurant. We ordered the suckling pig, braised crab with glass noodles, cashew nuts chicken and stir fried asparagus with prawns. The suckling pig is good, right proportion of meat to fat. It...More

The quality and service is terrible and well overpriced. The place seems old, slightly dirty and the attitude of the staff is the opposite to service orientated Highly recommend that you avoid this place at all costs

This was our first meal upon arriving in Chinatown, Bangkok. We sampled several things and enjoyed them all. Try the stir fried morning glory. The prices on the street are cheaper, but it was reasonable for a restaurant if you're looking to sit down somewhere.

This is a well known Chinese restaurant in Bangkok. Delicious foods especially sharks fin soup. The pricing a bit expensive but worth it. They will standby a staff nearby your table to refill your tea and clean up your finished meal. Good service. Recommended!!!

We stopped here of curiosity. We noticed a sign that the restaurant offers Sharks fin soup which is the best in Bangkok since 1951. To our happiness, we have not regretted. In addition to soup ordered few more dishes that we liked. Most importantly -...More

Given the level of competition for food in Thailand, this one did not live up to it's grand appearance and premium pricing. The staff hovered over us most of the evening but still seemed not to be there whenever we actually wanted anything. The food...More
