Chinatown Bangkok, also known as Yaowarat, boasts a thriving food scene. But with so many options, it’s hard to pick the best Chinatown Bangkok food. Especially at night, when street food vendors are allowed to open their cards, this famous neighbourhood transforms into a foodies Walhalla! Chinatown is best to visit from Tuesday till Sunday after six o'clock in the evening, as on Mondays many restaurants are closed and street food carts are not allowed to open and some restaurants are not open during the day. That does mean Chinatown itself is closed on Monday, but many of the Chinatown food recommendations in this article are not open.

With the recent opening of Wat Mangkon MRT Station, it's even nowadays
easier than before to access Chinatown with public transport and explore the culinary secrets of Chinatown. Chinatown is an excellent area to have your own little food tour and in this article, you’ll find our favourite food to try in Yaowarat! In this article, we cover the following topics. By clicking one of the orange links, you will be directed straight to that topic. If you want to go straight to the food recommendations, tap on:

Is Chinatown Bangkok worth visiting?


Chinatown Bangkok is one of the city's highlights and definitely worth visiting. Walking through Chinatown Bangkok is as if you're in a completely different country, surrounded by neon lights, street food, organized chaos, temples and the scent of Chinese herbs. Chinatown Bangkok should be visited during the night as the area transforms completely in a positive way. 


 

What is Bangkok's Chinatown famous for?


Chinatown Bangkok is famous for its (street) food. There is an abundance of vendors, and unique restaurants and the whole area breaths food. Aside from that, Bangkok's Chinatown is famous for its temples, unique Chinese atmosphere and organized chaos. It's a small part of Bangkok that doesn't even remotely feel like you're in Thailand.

The 20 best Chinatown Bangkok food are:

 

1. Roasted Duck (180 THB) - Hua Seng Hong


Hua Seng Hong is an institution in Bangkok with nowadays twenty different branches spread all over town. Their first restaurant was opened in 1956 in Chinatown though. This famous restaurant serves a huge variety of Thai and Chinese dishes. One of their signatures is this beautifully presented roasted duck portion. The skin is perfectly crispy and the tender meat has lots of flavours. Completely soak the duck in the complementary sweet sauce to enjoy this dish the most. Besides this amazing roasted duck, we would also recommend you to try Stir-Fried Sea Crab with Curry Powder (599 THB) and Baked Spiced Goose’s Feet with Egg Noodles (420 THB). Compared with the other Chinatown food options listed in this article, Hua Seng Hong is by far the neatest restaurant, which makes it a great option for those who want to try Chinese-Thai-influenced dishes at a clean restaurant. It is fair to say that Chinatown is not the cleanest area to dine in compared to other areas in Bangkok. But it sure is an unforgettable experience for many tourists. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Hua Seng Hong

2. Noodle with Claw of Crab (150 THB) - Odean Noodle


Odean Noodle is located close to the start of Yaowarat Road and serves famous egg noodles with a large crab claw, a true delicacy. The famous noodles are served with different sizes of crab claws, which start from 150 THB to 550 THB, depending on the size and weight. The picture below contains the smallest crab claw size available, which costs 150 THB. Another big plus is that the noodles at Odean Noodle are completely made from scratch. If you are a noodle fan, you should definitely try this shop on your Chinatown Bangkok food quest. We would also highly recommend you order their homemade Fried Prawn Wonton (100 THB). These wontons are richly filled with prawns filling and are ordered by every local that visits Odean Noodle. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Odean Noodle.

3. Shrimp Dumplings (100 THB) - Jok Toe Deaw

 

This restaurant is located in the middle of the market and is famously known for its impressive shrimp dumpling. The restaurant does serve a variety of Thai dishes as well, however, you can only order sets and a reservation is required for this. Luckily, you can just stop by to order the dumplings. The ten dumplings are richly filled, large, topped with fried garlic and covered in a sweet soy sauce. It’s a perfect combination of savoury and slight sweetness. For only 100 THB you can enjoy these by-Michelin-Guide-recommended treats. For more information about this amazing local restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Jok Toe Deaw

4. Chinese Doughnut with Pandan & Condensed Milk (40 THB) - Pa Tong Go Savoey


When you enter Yaowarat Road from the eastside, you will immediately notice a long queue in front of the 7-11. Those people are not waiting in line to get a 7-11 toasty, but instead, they are patiently waiting for the best Chinese doughnuts in Bangkok. In front of the 7-11 is a street food vendor named Pa Tong Go Savoey which is famously known for its Pa Tong Go. Right after the doughnuts are deep-fried, the freshly fluffy doughnuts are shortly roasted above the grill to give them a savoury flavour. You can choose between a few toppings but by far the most popular option is the Chinese Doughnut with Pandan and Condensed Milk. And for only 40 THB per portion, you are almost stupid to not try this sweet and savoury treat. For more information about this amazing local restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Pa Tong Go Savoey

5. Rice Soup with Fish or Oysters (300 THB) - Siang Kia Khao Tom Pla


This long-standing Chinatown Bangkok food legend is famous for serving one of Bangkok’s best Khao Tom Pla or Khao Tom Hoy Nangrom, which is a bowl of Thai rice soup with fish or oysters. The soup is impressively delicious and comes with a good amount of seafood. The ancient secret family recipe they use is what makes the soup so good. Siang Ki Khao Pla is located in an alley near the end of Yaowarat Road, in a building that you easily walk past if you didn't know they serve legendary Chinatown food here. Although the rice soup with fish is their signature, we like their rice soup with oysters just as much! For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla.

6. Stir-Fried Crab with Yellow Curry (500 THB) - T&K Seafood


T&K Seafood is one of Bangkok’s hugely popular local seafood restaurants in Yaowarat which is often completely packed with hungry customers and deserves a top spot on this ultimate Chinatown Bangkok food list! Although the restaurant definitely needs a renovation, as the majority of all the restaurants in Chinatown Bangkok, the food that is served here is impressive and attracts many customers for years. One of the highlights of the menu is the Stir-Fried Crab with Yellow Curry. The crab is fresh and is covered in a thick layer of tasty curry powder and veggies. But besides this delicious seafood curry, there are countless other tasty seafood options that will excite your taste buds. Examples are Grilled Prawns (150 THB) and Steamed White Snapper in Spicy Garlic and Lemon Soup (350 THB). For more in-depth information about this restaurant, check out our complete review of T&K Seafood. For more general information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of T&K Seafood.

7. Cheng Teung Mhee (40 THB) - Aaii Waan Yen


What we like so much about Thai (and Asian) desserts is that Thai know how to make something delicious by using mostly natural ingredients. Where in Europe most desserts are mass made and full of additives and preservatives, Thai make their desserts with mostly natural ingredients. Like this traditional Thai-Chinese dessert at Aaii Waan Yen which is prepared with egg noodles, kidney beans, seeds and dried persimmon. You can choose to mix it with either sweet coconut milk or longan juice. At first, we were sceptical about how something so simple with ingredients we usually don't expect to be in our desserts, can taste good. But right from the first bite, we were completely flabbergasted. That's why we highly recommend you try one of the desserts at this hugely popular dessert shop. Another delicious dessert at Aaii Waan Yen is their Cheng Teung Nomsod, which also costs 40 THB. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Aaii Waan Yen.

8. Crispy Oyster Omelette (100 THB) - Nai Mong Hoi Thod


One of the most famous local restaurants in Bangkok’s Chinatown is Nai Mong Hoi Thod, known for serving Bangkok’s best oyster omelette! The delicious and greasy combination of stir-fried crispy battered omelette, oysters, thick oyster- and sweet chilli sauce is just heavenly good and is definitely one of the food highlights in Bangkok’s Chinatown. Nai Mong Hoi Thod is also listed in our article about the four best hoy tod in Bangkok. Keep in mind that Nai Mong Hoi Thod maintains dual pricing, something that usually only occurs at tourist spots such as The Grand Palace, which means Thai nationals pay less (70 THB) than foreigners (100 THB). If you’re against this policy, try one of the many other tasty Chinatown Bangkok food on this list or visit Daeng Racha Hoi Thot (also listed in this article), another amazing restaurant that serves great oyster omelettes nearby. Other delicious food at Nai Mong Hoi Thod is their Crispy Mussel Topped with Oysters (150 THB). For more in-depth information about this restaurant, check out our complete review of Nai Mong Hoy Thod

9. Fish Ball Egg Noodle (40 THB) - Lim Lao Ngow Fishball Noodle 


This legendary street food vendor is in business for over eighty years and perfected its recipe over all these years for their famous fishball egg noodles. This hugely popular place is located in a small alley near Yaowarat road, and right after opening, the majority of the tables are filled with hungry customers as well as locals waiting for their takeaway orders. The service is quick and within minutes, you can enjoy a delicious bowl of noodles. The noodles are also served with soup, but these two bowls are served separately. Fishball egg noodle is a slightly sweet and mostly savoury bowl of noodles with just a little touch of seafood flavour on it. It's the fish balls and dumplings that contain fresh seafood meat. The fried garlic toppings are the real flavour makers. Due to the location, Lim Lao Ngow Fishball Noodle is not overcrowded with tourists, making it a great place to experience local food to the fullest. For more general information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Lim Lao Ngow Fishball Noodle.

10. Crispy Pork and BBQ Pork with Sweet Chinese Sausage (40 THB) - Xie Lao Yee Hor


Xie Lao Yee Hor is located right around Wat Mangkon Metro Station. This well-priced local restaurant is specialized in crispy- and barbecue pork with rice and is open only during the daytime. Xie Lao Yee Hor is a well-kept secret and has the looks of your typical local eatery with their famous crispy pork displayed behind glass, aluminium tables and chairs and a white-tiled wall covered in all sorts of certificates and pictures. Xie Lao Yee Hor is one of our favourite so-called 'khao moo deng moo grob' vendors in Bangkok. When you order their Crispy Pork and Barbecue Pork, don’t forget to order with a portion of goon chiang (sweet Chinese sausage) as to us this is a must with a tasty plate of pork and rice covered in flavourful Chinese barbecue sauce. Other recommended food at Xie Lao Yee Hor is their Shrimp Wonton Soup, which also costs only 40 THB. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Xie Lao Yee Hor.

11. Soft Boiled Blood Cockles (100 THB) - Hoy Kraeng Pa Jeen


This Chinatown Bangkok street food vendor is well-known for serving one of the best blood cockles in Bangkok. The blood cockles here are always fresh, which is particularly important with this barely cooked dish. The street food vendor is open at six o'clock in the evening and from that moment on, the place is usually completely full of hungry locals. The portion is a bit small, but the quality of both the cockles and the mussels is excellent. You can choose between three different sauces, but the spicy seafood sauce is in our opinion the most delicious dipping sauce. Even though these blood cockles might look not appetizing, if you are a seafood lover, you will definitely enjoy these little treats. Otherwise, stick to a plate of boiled mussels. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Hoy Kraeng Pa Jeen.

12. Roll Noodle Soup (50 THB) - Nai-Ek Roll Noodles


Nai-Ek Roll Noodles is a popular restaurant in Chinatown Bangkok and is also recommended by Michelin, similar to a few other restaurants listed in this article about the best Chinatown Bangkok Food. What makes this local restaurant so good is their famous Roll Noodle Soup, which costs you only 50 THB. The restaurant is very easy to spot, as every night heaps of locals queue up in front of this restaurant to try their signature dish crispy pork with roll noodles. The peppery broth is a real treat and what makes locals returning customers. For the daredevils among us, it's possible to order your soup with organs, something that most Thai love. Other recommendations are the Pork Spareribs Stew and Deep Fried Crispy Pork, which both cost 100 THB each. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Nai-Ek Roll Noodles.

13. Toasted Buns (20 THB) - Tasty Toast


Though not that spectacular, Thai absolutely LOVE this toasted bun vendor in Chinatown. Every night queues line up in front of this vendor for up to 30 minutes, craving a charcoal toasted bun with a creamy filling. You can choose between several flavours, although chocolate and egg custard are our favourites. You select which flavours you want by pen and paper and once you hand over your choices to the staff, you have to wait a while before you get the box of toasted buns. This whole chaotic experience when you're in the middle of Yaowarat road is quite the attraction itself. Overall, a toasted bun at Tasty Toast is a good dessert to finish your Bangkok Chinatown food tour. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Tasty Toast.

14. Panang Curry (60 THB) - Khao Gaeng Jake Puey


One of the cooler food experiences in Chinatown Bangkok is Khao Gaeng Jake Puey. At three o'clock in the afternoon, a few plastic chairs and a table gets placed on the pedestrian sidewalk. On that table, you'll find several large pans full of different types of curry and from that moment on, locals are queueing up in line in order to get a plate of this delicious curry and devour it while sitting on one of the plastic red chairs. Our personal favourite curry here is the Panang Curry, which costs 60 THB per plate with additional pork ribs (seekong moo ob) and sweet Chinese sausage (gun chiang). The curry itself is rich in flavour and accessible to the Western taste palette. Make sure to arrive on time as the hungry locals always make sure that the pans of curry are empty before the street food vendor officially closes. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Khao Gaeng Jake Puey.

15. Lod Chong (22 THB) - Lod Chong Singapore 


Walking through the crowded and humid alleys of Chinatown will make sweat and a refreshing treat is always more than welcome. Luckily for you, there is a hugely popular restaurant that is specialized in Lod Chong, a Thai dessert that is made with coconut milk, crushed ice and green jelly noodles. Usually, after a spicy Thai meal, a bowl of Lod Chong will put the fire out on your tongue, but in Chinatown, it's also a great refreshment. The restaurant is spacious enough to sit and relax for a while and is located around 250 metres east of Wat Mangkon, near the start of Yaowarat Road. The Lod Chong is served in a large glass instead of a small bowl and only costs 22 THB per glass. The Lod Chong served at Lod Chong Singapore is slightly sweeter than we are used to, but nonetheless delicious. For more in-depth information about this restaurant, check out our complete review of Lod Chong Singapore. For more general information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Lod Chong Singapore.

16. Roll Noodle In Peppery Soup With Crispy Pork (50 THB) - Nay Lek Uan


Nay Lek Uan is another hugely popular street food vendor in Chinatown that locals simply love. What makes Nay Lek Uan so special is that they serve a peppery soup, that some can experience as slightly spicy, however, it's "black pepper spicy", not "red chilli spicy". The soup is served with roll noodles, which is almost like penne-pasta. To give the soup extra flavour and texture, the soup is served with super crunchy crispy pork. Although you most likely have to wait in line before you get a table, the service is really quick and within a minute your soup is served. For more information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Nay Lek Uan.

The following restaurants and their most recommended food are located close to Yaowarat/Chinatown Bangkok. The reason why we add them to this article is that it will give you more food options to choose from during the daytime as these restaurants are open at normal times, contrary to some restaurants located in Chinatown. 

 

Restaurants and the best food near Chinatown Bangkok:

 

17. Crispy Fried Omelette with Mussels (50 THB) - Daeng Racha Hoi Thod


As mentioned earlier in this article, the oyster omelette served at Nai Mong Hoy Thod has dual pricing. If you don't agree with this, Daeng Racha Hoi Thod is a great alternative and is located very close to Chinatown. This local restaurant is actually a combination of four different vendors that share one indoor sitting area together. One of the vendors is Daeng Racha Hoi Thod and the older man fries amazingly Crispy Fried Omelette with Mussels and one plate only costs you 50 THB. The shop is open daily between nine o'clock in the morning and three o'clock in the afternoon, however, due to its popularity and limited stock, the shop is usually closed right around lunchtime (one o'clock in the afternoon). There is also a spongier version available with oysters, the so-called 'Or Suan', which also costs 50 THB. For more general information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Daeng Racha Hoi Thot.

18. Khao Man Gai (40 THB) - Ka Mu Ti


Another vendor right next to Daeng Racha Hoi Thod is Ka Mu Ti, a local's favourite that serves Khao Man Gai. Kha Gan Kai is steamed chicken served with rice and a delicious dipping sauce. This is a typical Thai street food option that is popular all over the country, although it's actually a Hainanese dish. The crispy mussel omelette from Daeng Racha Hoi Thod and the Khao Man Gai from this vendor is by far the most popular dishes at this restaurant, although the Chicken Noodle Soup (40 THB) is often ordered by locals as well. Contrary to Daeng Racha Hoi Thod, this vendor is always open during the day. For more general information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Ka Mu Ti.

19. Khao Moo Daeng Moo Grob Goon Chiang Kai Ma Toom (40 THB) - Si Morakot


Si Morakot is another by Michelin recommended, local restaurant and is located in the same alley as the previous two recommended restaurants close to Chinatown Bangkok. Si Morakot is famous for its Khao Moo Daeng, similar to the recommended restaurant Xie Lao Yee Hor (number 7 in this article). The most recommended dish is Khao Moo Daeng Moo Grob Goon Chiang Kai Ma Toom, a complete mouth full: Moo Deng (BBQ Pork), Moo Grob (Crispy Pork) and Goon Chiang (Chinese Sausage), all covered in a tasty, thick, sweet gravy. During lunchtime, the restaurant is completely packed with hungry customers as well as countless Grab and Foodpanda drivers waiting for their delivery meal. We recommend you avoid the rush hours as the restaurant is open daily from ten o'clock in the morning until five-thirty in the late afternoon. Similar to Nai Mong Hoy Thod and Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla, Si Morakot is also listed in our article about the best local Thai restaurants in Bangkok, which contains even more food inspiration in Bangkok. For more general information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Si Morakot.

20. Pork Satay with Toast (85 THB) - Chong Kee Pork Satay


Delicious food does not have to be complicated and Chong Kee Pork Satay proves that philosophy by serving only their delicious satay. There are several sizes available, varying between ten and thirty sticks of either pork or pork liver satay and cost you 8 THB per skewer. A piece of toast costs you 8 THB as well. You would be surprised how popular this restaurant is, from groups of locals who just want to grab a small bite or those who order Khao Moo Daeng at Si Morakot and combine it with a few skewers of pork satay as Si Morakot (the previously recommended restaurant) is the neighbour of Chong Kee Pork Satay. The pork satay is served with peanut sauce and a plate of pickles with non-spicy green chillies. For more general information, such as the opening times, location, recommended dishes, menu and impression pictures of the restaurant, check out the TopTravelFoods review page of Chong Kee Pork Satay.
