The new “All You Can Eat After Dark” special at Millennium Hilton Bangkok enhances the experience that made Yuan a byword among aficionados of delicious, authentic Chinese dishes

Looking for great Cantonese cuisine with a fantastic river view to enjoy, especially after sunset? Mosey on over to the Yuan at the Millennium Hilton Bangkok. This high-end Chinese restaurant is a not-to-be missed experience for so many reasons.
One is the stunning view across the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok’s “River of Kings,” which throbs with the city’s heartbeat as no other place in the city does, especially after dark. This river has been the life-source of the city for centuries and continues to be so today, perhaps even more. Yuan puts you on a vantage point to gaze down upon the bustling waterway, which dramatically edges several Bangkok monuments and landmarks while you enjoy the culinary experience that made the restaurant a byword among connoisseurs of delicious, authentic Chinese dishes.
The Yuan experience becomes even better these days with the introduction of a new “All You Can Eat – After Dark” promotion, which Chinese food lovers are sure to enjoy. Following on the heels of the very successful Lunchtime Unlimited promotion, the Millennium Hilton Bangkok has decided to offer its guests a chance to ensure that their evening meal is every bit as indulgent as the former.
Unlimited dishes, cooked with a unique twist of Thailand in the open kitchen by a very talented chef — the man responsible for a seamless marrying of Chinese traditional flavors — are now available every day. The chefs’ many years of experience are obvious in the extensive dishes that looked good (on the menu list) even before you order them.
You can begin your experience with a selection of six appetizers, selected soups, and variety of rice and noodles, all wok-fried by the chef. Entree specialties focus on contemporary Cantonese cuisine style, and you must sample the stir-fried Thai scallops with black bean sauce, the braised sea fish ”Yuan Style,” and the wok-fried prawns with XO sauce – just a few of the many truly to-die-for dishes.
Cap your experience with a parade of traditional desserts such as chilled sago, cantaloupe melon in coconut milk, and mango pudding, which really makes for a perfect end to any meal.
For those who would like to linger after meal – and why not with such amazing view? – just sit back as the sparkling lights turn on and the drama on the river unfolds while sipping one of their more than 30 gourmet teas, all specially blended by a Tea-Master team and poured from an elegant teapot with a meter-long spout.
Think you have tried all the best of Bangkok riverside dining can offer? Maybe it’s time you try Millennium Hilton Bangkok’s “All You Can Eat After Dark.” Available at just Bt950 net per person from 6 to 10 p.m. daily, this is one Bangkok dining experience that you should include in your “been there, done that” list. There are private dining rooms for up to 30 guests if you think bringing a group is more enjoyable.
