YAO pays culinary homage to the vibrant Yaowarat neighborhood in Bangkok, an ancient Thai-Chinese community.

As you can imagine, the neighborhood is a paradise for food lovers because this cultural blending has created some of the most delicious eats on Earth. Spicy, crunchy, tangy and delectable dishes are handed down over many generations.

We created this restaurant to have the look, feel and tastes of Yaowarat, and we cant wait to share our food with you! Once more, we welcome you and yours to YAO.

    We went for a date night and ordered food from date night menu. Food was not fresh at all, very stale. When we asked the waitor about the chicken dish we ordered , he agreed and got us a new plate but even that was okay. we didn't argue much ... dessert was okay too

    Food portions were really small for the price. There was only 2 shrimp in the entree and very little rice. I mean rice is cheap😗

    I had the Roti Canai and the Lobster Pad Thai. Both were delicious. I would've like a bigger piece of Roti bread. The Lychee Martini was good but it should be perfected some more. Also an actual Lychee garnish will amplify it. Overall pretty great experience. I would most definitely go there again

    Ambience was awesome with live music.. food was pathetic.. the food tasted neither Chinese nor Thai.. needs a lot of improvement.. we eat a lot of Asian food but this wasn’t it.. it was my husband’s birthday and total bummer coz of the food.. never ever go again and will not recommend to anyone..
