Siu mai, har gow, char siu bao—they’re what ultimate comfort foods are all about, especially when it’s an all-you-can-eat deal. Let’s see where to find the best dim sum buffets in Bangkok.
We don’t know about you, but dim sum may just be the best thing to come out of China since kung fu. Each protein is meticulously taken care of, wrapped, sliced, spiced, and cooked to perfection. From steaming to frying, one bite simply won’t do. And with so many variations of dim sum to choose from, you’ll be full even before you can try them all. Fun fact: there’s at least a thousand types of dim sum in the Guangdong region alone.
To make the most out of all this steamed goodness, a buffet deal is a great way to try different varieties of dim sum. Here are some of the best all-you-can-eat dim sum buffets in Bangkok.

Fresh shrimp, spices, sauces—they do it all while honouring their roots.

Spice & Barley Riverside Bangkok
As well as your favourite dim sum, they also throw Peking duck into the mix—all for THB 999++. Now that’s a deal. Spring rolls, har gow, lava buns, all the good stuff, and more. When you’re here, be sure to save some room for dessert, as their fried red date pancakes, along with sesame balls in warm ginger syrup, are worth a visit on their own.
