3. Mei Jiang

Located in the Peninsula Bangkok, Mei Jiang is a Chinese dining spectacle. Here, Chef Jackie Ho prioritises presentation as much as flavour. Thus, Cantonese fare is dramatically served through “thick clouds of mist or beneath heavy glass bells”. Some highlights include the signature Tea-smoked Chicken with Crispy Rice. Alternatively, opt for the Stir-Fried Phuket Lobster, a fusion of Chinese and Thai ingredients. Their menu is seasonal and so specialities vary per time of year. Finally, to compliment your meal try their tea pairings to “further elevate the aroma and taste borne of the wok”.

Opening hours: Daily, 11:30 – 14:30, 18:00 – 22:30.

Pricing: 1,700 Baht/person.

Address: 333 Charoennakorn Road, Klongsan, Bangkok 10600.
