The Shangri-La Bangkok offers a large choice of dining with its 9 bars and restaurants on-site.

At the “Volti”, the hotel’s Italian restaurant and bar, you will find high-quality fine dining.

The elegant “Shang Palace” offers authentic Cantonese cuisine and signature dishes.

However, the lunch “Dim Sum” buffet is average.

You may find better food at “Next 2 Café”, which serves market-style Asian and international food.

For an authentic Thai dining experience, try “Salathip”.

And don’t miss the buffet-style eatery on a riverboat, “Horizon Cruise”.
