Awesome DIM SUM in Bangkok! – Thailand Vlog

Posted: Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Dim Sum in Bangkok is world class, no question about it! In this vlog, my friends and I went to a classic restaurant that is very well known for their authentic Hong Kong style dim sum: Ah Yat Abalone Forum.

Ah Yat also offers other Cantonese dishes outside of their dim sum menu. There are no carts, so you have to order off the menu. It is located inside the Ramada Plaza Menam Riverside Hotel (previously Menam Hotel).

In Thailand, unlike in North America, Chinese food is pretty pricey as they tend to be more elaborate meals with more expensive ingredients such as seafood. In fact, most good Chinese sit-down restaurants are more expensive compared to Thai restaurants. The damage for our meal was 700 baht per person ($20 US) but we did order wayyy too much, as we usually do, so you can probably get away with 500-600 baht per person for this meal.
