Xing Fu Restaurant at Bangkok Hotel Lotus Sukhumvit
Great Value Dim Sum Lunch Buffet in Bangkok
Xing Fu Chinese Restaurant in Bangkok offers a mix of traditional and inventive dim sum, meat and seafood dishes in a sophisticated and classically styled environment. Guests can expect decor reminiscent of China, with latticed screens, lanterns overhead and a red on cream decor, all of which add authenticity to a meal of freshly prepared – and award winning – delicacies. Xing Fu Chinese Restaurant is located on the eighth floor of the Bangkok Hotel Lotus Sukhumvit, only a few metres down Sukhumvit Soi 33, and walking distance from the BTS Skytrain at Phrom Phong.
The buffet lunch here is excellent with 24 separate options, all cooked on request, and with no limit to what you can order. The menu spans the best of Cantonese cuisine and beyond: steamed wantons, prawn dumplings (harkao), pork or shrimp shu mai, spare rib with black bean sauce, deep fried tofu stuffed with shrimp, pan fried radish cake... the list goes on. A personal favourite is the steamed prawns rolled in a thin slice of garoupa fillet, garnished with lemongrass herbs and chilli: the mix of textures from the white fish to the shrimp is exquisite. Gourmet ingredients are used in all dishes with several individual dipping sauces brought to each person. These include classic soy sauce, a chilli and garlic paste and an ultra spicy green chilli and lime dipping sauce to satisfy the Thai palate.
On top of these delicately flavoured dim sum are two soup options (hot and sour or deep fried fish with apple) and several filling main options such as a plate of roast duck and barbeque pork, spicy, fried Hokkien noodles, and crab stick salad. Orders are delivered in the classic bamboo steamers and a buffet lunch here will surely end with the entire table filled with pot upon pot of Chinese treats. The buffet lunch costs a total of 801 baht during the week and 824 baht on weekends (including tax and service charge) and includes unlimited green tea, chrysanthemum tea, fruit and mango pudding. Of course, you are free to choose from the a la carte menu if you require a lighter lunch with most dim sum costing less than 100 baht per option.
The main dining room at Xing Fu Restaurant can seat around 100, with six further private dining rooms for private parties or business lunches. These can be reserved in advance at no additional cost. At dinnertime, Xing Fu Restaurant serves Indian cuisine alongside their Chinese menu so guests can choose from the best of two separate regional cuisines. Due to the regular custom Xing Fu receives, the chefs here alter the menu with each passing season so even returning guests get to experience something fresh and new.
