POTONG (普通), roughly translates as “simple”, is the name of Chef Pam’s family business, representing Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine producer (中草药制造商 - zhōng cǎo yào zhì zào shāng) since 1910. POTONG was built to last with techniques ahead of its time and with the distinctive design of SINO-Portuguese, it became one of the tallest and most anticipating buildings when constructing in Chinatown, Bangkok. For 4 generations, spanning over 100 years, Chef Pam’s family lived here while producing Chinese medicine product under the name “保坤益母藥” (bǎo kūn yì mǔ yào). This 5-story-tall building has a tale of its own; from one age to another.
5th Floor was where Chef Pam’s relatives used to assemble and stargaze in the evening. Upon looking up, you will see the legacy POTONG logo. Situated at the top of POTONG, this space has become the most anticipated zone where our guests can check out surrounding buildings which are the focal point of Chinatown. This territory serves exquisite mixed drinks, cocktails, beers, wines, and beverages from the OPIUM bar that will perfect your evening.
