Chao Xiang Restaurant is neither glamorous nor extravagant, but it has all the vibes of a vintage Chinese restaurant in Bangkok. This is the type of restaurant that a middle-class family of Chinese-descent would eat at to pamper themselves on a limited budget. The dim sum might take a while to come out, but once it does, it’s pretty darn good.

Unlimited dim sum for ฿620 per person with a huge Chinese-style round table? Sign me up for this dose of nostalgia.

You might not be getting the round table experience with Chinese vibes, but the dim sum buffet will make up for that.

The lunch costs the very auspicious price of ฿888++ for lunch (if you don’t know, 8 is a lucky number in Chinese). Their dinner buffet is ฿1,588++, but there’s a promotion where 4 people only pay for the price of 3. Only available from 5-12 February.

Despite that, it still draws in quite a crowd for its delicious food and humble prices. Lunch dim sum buffets are ฿850 and dinner peking duck buffets are ฿990 on weekdays.

You wouldn’t expect a name like Versailles Palace to serve Chinese food, but that’s how we roll in Bangkok. While it isn’t as fancy or as popular as its namesake, this restaurant hits all the right taste notes with its dim sum buffet.

Best of all is that it’s also our cheapest option with their dim sum buffet priced at just over ฿430.
