Kowloon Dim Sum



Samuel Castro for "Where in Dining"
August 20, 2011

Not that you need an excuse, but the rainy season is a good time to indulge in hot lunches—and what goes better with a foggy afternoon than fresh steaming dim sum?  Just think of it—sui-mai under a bamboo lid, the smell of ginger, soy, and pepper wafting in the air. 

Where? The answer to your question is Kowloon.

Kowloon means "nine dragons" in Cantonese, and is also the name of the peninsula to the north of Hong Kong Island, but in Bangkok, its better known as that little red restaurant on the first floor of the Holiday Inn Silom.  Although located at the hotel, Kowloon operates independently with an entrance to the street. 

Serving fresh handmade dim sum, they are particularly famous for their Bamboo and Shrimp Har Gau (THB 80++), Shrimp and Pork Sui Mai (THB 80++), and baked Char Sui Bun (THB 80++.)  The menu also includes Cantonese rice dishes, soups, noodles, and desserts all ranging from THB 80 – 150++. We highly recommend the Pan Fried Green Tea Har Gau with a Wasabi Dip (THB 80++) and the three colored Vegetarian Dumpling (THB 70++) one of their 9 fully vegetarian dim sum dishes. 

Forget dress codes and expect an extremely casual atmosphere.  On any given the day, the restaurant seems to bustle with families and the business crowd from nearby office buildings. 

Kowloon is now serving a dim sum buffet, using the same selections on their à la carte menu.  Dim Sum Buffet is priced at THB 299++, and runs from Monday – Friday at 11:00 – 14:00 hrs.  The promotion includes all menu items, with tea.
