    There is a lot of Chinese restaurants over by the river, both in the hotels and on the street

    You are obviously different living there, but I just can't eat Chinese in Thailand

    Although when I lived in Patong there was a good Chinese place on Rat-U-Thit

    Is that sweet or savory, or both? Looks like a cheescake but fluffier texture and softer. I always see these Japanese hokkaido cheese tarts in all the malls in Thailand. The locals seem to go crazy for them. Never tried one myself though.

    Japanese cheesecake is much less cheesy than traditional NY Cheescake
    It is almost a sponge cake with a bit of cheese

    I would say this is basically in between a Japanese cheesecake and a traditional NY Cheesecake

    And I think the 1st picture is much more accurate than the 2nd, much creamier picture


    I got my Japan connection here bringing me some over 555

    If it tastes good then I don't care what "label" you put on it. Call it "Kung Foo Yung Som Et Thai" from Russia for all I care.

    I like veggies cooked quickly in various Asian sauces. I don't care if you call them Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese or Korean. If they taste good then that's all that counts.

    100% correct on all counts Baccy. The crispy chicken was awesome and an obvious favourite with most patrons. Nearly every table had chicken, beans too.

    1st thing I said as we all dug in was "this reminds me of SBH's chicken cashew" - Bill's chef used to do one of the best ever, with smoky dried seedless chili pods which impart a special flavour.

    One of the things which seem to disappoint some Shangri La customers is the Thai-ified Chinese (as per Tripadvisor comments), yet we thoroughly enjoyed all dishes except the duck ... it was tough, must've had a long hard flight from Peking. Can't wait to revisit China Kitchen and try more dishes, it's that good!

    @Erik, I'll get staff pics next visit ... 55

    ^^ I used to love The Empire Diner down in Chelsea way back when I lived there back in the late 70's...(shoot 40 year-ish ago now)...it was a bit of a greasy spoon back then but has lifted its game and profile since with refurbs and movie scenes...it was such a classic..hard to not love it

    here's what it looks like these days...it has expanded and been spruced up quite a bit since those days

    Should have remained a greasy spoon!
    That's what makes a diner a diner

    I've never been but used to take the Greyhound bus all the time back and forth from NYC to Boston when I was a poor kid

    When coming back from Boston the bus would go up 10th Ave to Port Authority and that diner was my landmark to start getting ready to leave the bus


    PS....NYC is insane. Probably the liveliest I've seen it in ahwile. Tuesday night midtown east and had to go to 4 spots to even get a seat at the bar
    Certainly living up to their nickname
    I was just off a long day of flying so just wanted a decent seat at the bar
