Fifth Dragon


Fly high and humble

This Chinese dumplings joint, the Fifth Dragon, serves real xialongbao and hand-pull noddles in a downtown low cost mall. Although its food is far from a 'wow', but with its unbelievably friendly price for the locals, and the offer of real Chinese Northern bao (bun) and la-mian (noodle), the Fifth Dragon is an unpretentious restaurant that serves solid food but not a story or 'strawberry*'. So it is unlike the one in the opposite shopping mall (CWP); in here every penny a customer paid goes to the food, not to a PR cost or franchise fee.

97/11 Rajdamri Road
Prathumwan, Bangkok 10330

Something new in Big C. Good to have freshly made noodle and xiao lon bao.

The noodles and xiaolongbao look nice. Good that the revamped Big C has a Chinese noodle shop included.
