The culinary scene of Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok would never blue you, especially the scrumptious bites at the aristocratic China Table.
If a round gate with everything painted red is your perception of a Chinese meal, be our guest at the China Table of Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok, to taste and savour the pleasurably different. Situated between Sukhumvit 25 and 27, the hotel is easily accessed by the BTS and sits on the bank of Sukhumvit Road itself. Style and class filled the air once we entered the hotel and approached the entrance of China Table.
The elegant and modern glimpse of the restaurant embraced us as we were escorted to the designated round wooden table with modish setting from ceiling to floor. A long Dim Sum menu was handed to us as we settled down. It all sounded fantastic and we had a real dilemma choosing what our appetite could take. Steamed Pork & Shrimps Shu-Mai with Crab Roe was awesome, with excessive fillings while the Steamed Shrimps Ha Gaw got a wow from us with the gigantic size of the shrimps.
As for fried starters, we opted for Deep Fried Taro with Roasted Pork and Deep Fried Crabmeat with Onion & Cream Cheese. The latter was the highlight of all the Dim Sum we had! The Dim Sum were actually so great that we agreed to return next time for the all-youcan- eat Dim Sum, which we were told is priced at THB1,088++ for weekdays and THB1,188++ for weekends.
Then it was time for the à la carte dishes to parade on our oversized table. Kicking off in style, we had Braised Taiwan Abalone, Fish Maw and Mushroom in Oyster Sauce (THB 1,050) which was succulent and fulfilling. The Deep Fried Prawns with Wasabi (THB 390) were seamless with a not-so-strong taste that even a wasabi non-lover would enjoy. My favourite of all the dishes was the Crispy Succulent Almond Coated Crabmeat and Prawn Balls (THB 660) – a must-try if you dine here as it’s indescribably great! The tenderness and the delicious sauce cooked to perfection of Wok-Friend Beef Fillet with Japanese Teriyaki Sauce (THB 620) went really well with Fried Rice with Seafood and Yunan Ham with XO Sauce (THB 380). We also enjoyed the Steamed Snow Fish with Oolong Tea Sauce (THB 980) to the max. As we thought we could not manage to take on any more, the arrival of the Peking Duck (THB 1,500) had us continuing to eat with glee. The meat could be cooked in two different ways and our choices were the milky soup and the stir-fried pepper sauce; each was a delight in its own way.
Unfortunately, we left no room for the desserts that sounded so tempting on the menu. But one has to leave something behind in order to return, and we will certainly do so very soon.
