“Great street food, bird nests,...a must go !”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

An amazing venue for great food...especially food done in Chinese style...No difficult to spot which are the best or better outlets...just look at the amount of patrons waiting and you will be rewarded with delicious fares.
Eat a bit of each and save your stomach to check out the varied offerings...for seafood, try T&K Seafood, for great Bird Nest Soup, try Nam Sing, for pork-based snacks & products, plenty of shops within stone throw of each other ...then there is the street side desserts stalls selling hot ginger-soups (good to kick winds off your stomach), roasted chestnuts, pomegranate juices, durians, mangoes,....all at reasonable prices. Yaowarat Bangkok comes alive at night, particularly 6-7pm onwards and usually starts closing 1-2am...
A must go for food lovers....

“Hot and Busy.”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

You probably should visit this place after 6pm. As all the food place aren't open till then. We had a look around it's busy and you definitely need water.

“Brilliant atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

China town is a real buzz with people spilling out over the pavements. Kerb side restaurants and vendors selling amazing little tit bits of food. We ate at an outside fish restaurant - cooking, eating, washing up all done outside, and its one of the best meals I've had. Goodness knows what the hygiene is like but the fact that the place is buzzing with humanity and queues for the tables says something about the quality of the good value grub.
