I've eaten with friends and colleagues in all these restaurants in (greater) Bangkok. I'm no food expert, but I do know what I like! Many of my older reviews were also published in Japanese on newsclip.be タイ発ニュース速報. Whether you're after Thai food, or craving a Mexican taco, Japanese buffet or fish & chips, you can find it all here. (2016: I'm adding my Tripadvisor reviews here)

Peking Restaurant | ปักกิ่ง ****

stewed 3-layered pork
A friend checked out this restaurant a few weeks ago after seeing Chinese tour groups enjoying their meals on the terrace, and came back with enthusiastic stories about the delicious food and unique North-Chinese dishes on the menu. According to their web site, their Shandong styled cuisine was an essential part of old Beijing’s royal palace menu. Anyway, last night we went for dinner at the Silom branch.

As usual for Chinese restaurants, the place looks simple and undecorated with light wooden furniture and some food photos on the walls. It's air-conditioned, but there's a terrace outside near the road.

The menu contains a treasure of dishes I'd never tried or even heard off,
but we decided to keep it simple. We ordered the fried bean sprouts, which were soft and tender, and definitely imported, the three-layered pork with a delicious sauce, a beef and egg soup that became excellent after adding some soy sauce and pepper, and another three-layered stewed pork. Portions are big. For drinks we had of course Tsingtao beer, but regular beers and other drinks are available as well.

The service was fast, English was spoken, but not much Thai. The prices were not cheap, on average 150 baht per dish, but well worth the money.
