Still relatively new on the city scene, the 303 room Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse opened just over a year ago. It’s a lovely property, which is reason enough to visit, but if you need added impetus then make it a point to try Yào Restaurant and Rooftop Bar. The main dining area, which features a chic modern-Chinese décor, is located on the 32nd floor, while the open-air rooftop area is one flight up.

Reflecting Cantonese and Shanghai cuisines, the selection is vast, with a la carte options, dim sum favourites, set menus and tasting menus, vegetarian specialties, a selection of premium teas, and much more. To narrow it down, here are eight delicious reasons to check out Yào Restaurant and Rooftop Bar. Why eight? Well, according to Chinese tradition it’s the luckiest number.
